Nibali Publicizes Plans to Retire After 2022 Season [Video included]

Astana’s Vincenzo Nibali introduced his plan to retire from biking after this racing season as we speak on RAI TV’s Processo Alla Tappa program following the conclusion of as we speak’s Giro d’Italia stage to his hometown of Messina, in Sicily. Together with his dad and mom and lots of buddies in attendance, Nibali confirmed what had been the topic of hypothesis for the 37-year-old, that it was time to conclude his unimaginable profession. You’ll be able to watch a visibly emotional Nibali talk about retirement with the RAI studio crew, who additionally introduced in Nibali’s dad and mom early on on this clip:

The video concludes together with his pal and former teammate Sonny Colbrellii introduced in to say hiya and congratulate him on his choice. Nibali discusses leaving Messina at age 15 to pursue his goals, and talks in regards to the assist of family and friends. After that, my Italian isn’t adequate to parse out what he mentioned, however you may most likely guess.

Nibali has had a profession for the ages, however I don’t suppose as we speak is the time to recount all of his accomplishments. He’s one among my favourite riders because of his numerous successes and attacking type, in addition to his contributions to southern Italy’s place within the peloton (though as any Sicilian will inform you, the one geopolitical label they settle for is “Sicilian,” so perhaps I’m overstepping). In any case, Nibali is now on track to trip his last Giro d’Italia, so whereas he isn’t a contender to win, we are going to observe alongside and search for him to attempt one thing massive. If he doesn’t go for a dramatic stage victory someplace, I’ll pour out an previous bottle of Marsala in disgust.
