Vincenzo Nibali has confirmed that he will ride Paris-Nice in place of Tirreno-Adriatico, which has been postponed due to the restrictions imposed on sporting events in Italy to combat the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The Trek-Segafredo rider lines up for the Race to the Sun as part of an eight-man Trek-Segafredo team that includes Richie Porte, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne winner Jasper Stuyven and world champion Mads Pedersen.

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.
