Vincenzo Nibali may have been cleared to step back into Trek-Segafredo's 2021 Giro d’Italia squad following his wrist fracture but the team have made it clear that it will be waiting to see how the racing unfolds to determine if the two-time Giro winner will also be stepping back to a GC focus.

Nibali fractured the radius bone in his right wrist on April 14 and hasn’t raced since Milan-San Remo, so will line up for the May 8 time trial starting the Giro d’Italia just three-and-half weeks after the fracture and without having pinned a number on for seven weeks.
