Rome (AFP) - Four-time Grand Tour winner Vincenzo Nibali announced on Wednesday that he will ride in both the 2019 Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, according to Italian media reports.
The 34-year-old has never won two Grand Tours in a single season, and said that his home race would be his main target next year.
"Next year, I will do the Giro and the Tour. The Giro d'Italia is my main aim," he said at a presentation of his team, Bahrain-Merida, in Croatia.
Nibali, a winner of two Giro d'Italia titles and the 2014 Tour, has competed in both races twice before, including when he claimed his second maglia rosa in 2016.
