Vincenzo Nibali

Road Cycling

Vincenzo Nibali is an Italian born road cyclist known as “The Shark.” Riding for the Kazakhstani ProTeam Astana, Nibali is known as one of the most fierce stage race riders in recent years. While he is very strong in stage races, the Italian has also proven himself at the highest level, winning two of the three Grand Tours (2010 Vuelta a Espana, 2013 Giro d’Italia). Nibali’s most impressive and prized accomplishment came in 2013 when he won the Giro d’Italia in front of his home fans. The Italian won stage 18, a mountain time trial to all but solidify the Magila Rosa during the weather plagued race. Putting his big win in perspective, Nibali said: “I’ve achieved one of my li...

  • Scottish Rider David Millar Wins Stage 12 Of The 2012 Tour de France For Garmin-Sharp

    Cycling : 99th Tour de France 2012 / Stage 12

    Posted about 2 years ago by John Ohail

    As NBC’s Tour de France commentator, Phil Liggett said during Friday’s Stage 12, “About 99 times out of 100, the lead group gets caught by the peloton (before the finish line).” David Millar, of the Garmin-Sharp team, wanted Friday’s race to be that one time out of 100. The Scottish rider shot out with a group of four other men roughly 15km into the longest stage of the Tour. The fivesome lead the race for over 211km, a feat in itself. With less than 1km left in the race, Millar made his move. Only Jean-Christophe Peraud could counter, but in the end, Millar had the strength for the victory, edging Peraud at the finish line. Millar’s win was the 35th victory of his career, the fourth stage win of this year’s Tour for British riders and the American Garmin-Sharp team’s first of the 2012 Tour de France.

    The old adage goes: “If you fall, get up and try again.” French Europcar rider Pierre Rolland was a shining example of getting back up and trying again in Thursday’s Stage 11 of the Tour de France. The young cyclist was in the lead group of three riders on the final decent of the grueling Stage 11 when he misjudged a turn and went sliding to the ground. With his left hip torn open and blood spilling from his left elbow, Rolland exhibited the gutsiest performance of the day, pedaling himself back up to the lead. Rolland, sporting a custom pair of Oakley Radar Path sunglasses with True Digital prescription lenses, caught the two in front of him and shot out to a commanding 59-second lead, ultimately cruising to the victory. His win at La Toussuire, was his second Tour de France stage victory and marked back-to-back French/Team Europcar victories, as Thomas Voeckler won the 10th stage just a day before.
