Antonio Nibali is the younger brother of Vincenzo by nine years and will be starting his seventh professional season in 2021. He began his career 10 years after Vincenzo and first raced with his brother when the two joined Bahrain Merida in 2017. Antonio is a proficient climber who is quietly making his path in pro cycling, not easy when trailing behind his brother’s illustrious footsteps. In 2018, he won his first professional race, taking victory in Stage 7 at the Tour of Austria. A dedicated professional, he’s not one to shun the harsh and often unrewarding work required of domestiques. While his celebrated brother may grab the biggest headlines, it is riders like Antonio who selflessly help in making that happen.
