Nibali will end his career at Lombardia

Vincenzo Nibali will bid farewell to his extraordinary career on Oct. 8 in the edition of Il Lombardia presented by Eolo that starts in Bergamo and arrives in Como after a 253-kilometer route. Another great champion like Alejandro Valverde will also end his career on the Lombardy circuit.

The Shark, winner of Il Lombardia in 2015 and 2017, spoke thus, “For me it will be a great emotion and a great honor to close at Il Lombardia, which is one of the races I have loved the most in my career. I remember the victories of Bettini and Cunego in my early pro years and I dreamed of one day conquering this Monument. I have already succeeded twice and on Saturday the 8th I will try again in what will be my last race. I came out of La Vuelta well and have good feelings.”
