Vincenzo Nibali, the winner

The winner of Il Giro di Sicilia Vincenzo Nibali said: “It is special to win here, on the roads where I used to ride as a child. The feeling is just indescribable. I know these roads well, especially the final descent. Seeing friends and fans was great, I can’t find the words to describe what I feel now.

Before today, it had been a while since I’d won my last race. Today I tried to get an advantage on the last climb, I heard on the radio that the gap remained constant, I knew the final descent well and tried to reach the finish line. This result gives me a real morale and confidence boost for Il Lombardia next week.
