In a normal 2020 cycling season, Vincenzo Nibali would be racing in north Sicily today, taking on stage 6 of the Giro d'Italia, the day after the Etna summit finish. Instead, the Trek-Segafredo leader is stuck in COVID-19 lockdown, training indoors and giving interviews about what would have been.

In an interview with Tuttobiciweb, Nibali talked about missing racing, the lack of doping controls and, most interestingly of all, the chances of him competing at Paris-Roubaix – to be held this year on October 25 – before he hangs up the bike.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. 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.
