  • Vincenzo Nibali is my favorite Astana rider however I do have special “bias” favorite in Giuseppe and Davide Martinelli as their name is a variant of my own family name that is Marinelli…😉

  • Vincenzo Nibali has a lot of talent and class indeed. Martinelli family is doing great. It is going to be exciting to watch races again this year!
