Speaking ahead of the race, Winner of the 2021 edition, Vincenzo Nibali said: “It’s a big pleasure for me to come back to Il Giro di Sicilia, my home race. I feel like it is an important step in my preparation for the Giro d’Italia and I am coming here with the goal to test my condition and to get the racing rhythm after a break and a training camp on altitude. I have only great memories from my last year win here in Sicily, it was something absolutely special for me. Now we are here again and I have a strong roster around me, so I hope Astana Qazaqstan Team will show something good during these four days.”
