Wilier Triestina (Italy) - The Giro di Lombardia. A classic Monument race that is traditionally the wonderful conclusion to the season. The 2022 edition will be remembered as the last race for Vincenzo Nibali as a professional road bicycle racer.
On 8 October he will cover 257 km between Bergamo and Como on a Wilier 0 SLR with a special paintwork that will capture all the colours of his unforgettable career. It's no secret to anyone.
Vincenzo Nibali is a legend born from his great victories. One Tour de France, two Giro d’Italia, a Vuelta a España, a Milano - Sanremo, two Giro di Lombardia, two Italian Championships, two Tirreno - Adriatico and seven podiums in three Grand Tours. In addition to tens and tens of wins on every professional cycling road.
The Giro di Lombardia 2022 will be his last race as a professional, thus ending a season in which, once again, he was able to excite the fans during the 2022 Giro d’Italia.
“I was there on Passo Fedaia. Everyone was cheering like crazy for the best. But then, suddenly, I heard an incredible ovation, a hundred times louder than the others. And, in the distance, Vincenzo Nibali appeared”.
During his last 257 kilometres as a professional, Vincenzo will ride surrounded by the well-deserved roars of celebration at the Chapel of Madonna del Ghisallo and twice on Colle del San Fermo, carrying with him all the greatness that he has represented in competitive cycling.
