Julien Bernard is fully committed to supporting Vincenzo Nibali at the rescheduled Giro d’Italia later this year, with the Frenchman set to be a vital teammate in the mountains. 

Nibali is looking for his third Giro d’Italia title, having won in 2013 and 2016. The 35-year-old moved to Trek-Segafredo over the winter after three years at Bahrain-Merida and will link up with Bernard at the Giro.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
