The younger brother of Vincenzo Nibali, Antonio Nibali has also signed with BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team.

 

Antonio NIbali, age 24, is an Italian rider, mostly recognized as a climbing specialist. His results in the last season prove that he can still achieve many important individual and team goals in the future. The team expects that one more “Shark” from Sicily will be crucial for the future development of the new team.

 

Speaking about joining the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team, Nibali commented:

 

“I’m very excited to be a part of this new project along with such champions of cycling like my brother Vincenzo and many others. Riding together with my brother will be a really emotional experience. He is really happy for me too. He didn’t give me any advice yet, but for sure he will soon, maybe starting with the next training camp and then before races. I can’t wait to meet the whole team next week. I already know some of my new teammates like Agnoli, Gasparotto and Visconti and I’m really thrilled to ride with Purito Rodriguez, he’s a legend. I can’t express my expectations about the new season yet. All races will be pretty new for me and my task will be to support my teammates and captains. My goal is to have a good season and gain experience in the World Tour. It’s important to me that my brother and the team will be proud of me.”

 

General Manager of BAHRAIN MERIDA Team, Brent Copeland said about young Nibali:

 

“All at BAHRAIN MERIDA are very much looking forward to Antonio being part of this important team. Antonio will be coming into his 4th year as a professional cyclist and at the young age of 24 we feel its time he takes this important step in his career where we all feel he has a good margin for improvement. His 11th place in the Tour of Japan final general classification this year showed us his important characteristics. Antonio is the type of rider that dedicates everything to his job and a true professional at applying himself to hard work. We are very excited to see him racing with our team jersey next year.”
