Nibali, Vincenzo

  • vincenzo-nibali-astana-2013

    Vincenzo Nibali (born 14 November 1984 in Messina) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer who rides for UCI ProTeam Astana. Born near the Strait of Messina, Nibali's nickname is the "shark of the strait" or simply "the shark." His first major win came at the 2006 GP Ouest-France, where he beat an impressive field on a tough course. However, experts such as Michele Bartoli have said Nibali is most suited to competing in multi-stage races. Nibali's biggest win to date is the overall in the 2010 Vuelta a España.
