Vincenzo Nibali (Italian pronunciation: [vinˈtʃɛntso ˈniːbali]; born 14 November 1984) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer who rides for the Kazakhstani UCI ProTeam Astana.[1] Born near the Strait o Messina, his nickname is the "Shark o the Strait" or simply "The Shark".[2][3] 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.[4] Nibali's biggest wins tae date are the 2010 Vuelta a España an the 2013 Giro d'Italia.
