I guess he's riding the new Adriatica Ionica race which has a stage finish on Giau, so he'll probably show something there and win that.

Also that race has Giau, three sprints, and a 23km TTT :rolleyes:

No Adriatica. San Pellegrino altitude training camp, Italian Championships.

Dude. There is tomorrow

And if tomorrow is bad then there's the nats.

and if the nats are bad, then there's the first week of the Tour

and if the first week is bad then there's cobbles

and if the cobbles are bad then there's the Alps

and if the Alps are bad then there's the magical third week

and if the magical third week looks bleak and Nibali doesn't drop everyone by minutes on Col de Tourmalet, then maybe we can hit the panic button

Don't worry, Nibali's fans, he would be at TdF better than Bardet and Thomas (in latter case, unfortunately).

In fact Dauphine was a prep race for the San Pellegrino training camp. Starts Tuesday. May the force be with him.

Volpi yesterday at Radiocorsa said hat all is going as planned and he's following Slongo's training tables.
I think they planned to start not at 100% because he stressed that there aren't mountain stages in the first week.
The team it's not fully decided yet, they have to decide if Navardauskas will ride.

Nibali said that they know how to work to be in top shape so he's relaxed but it's not true that he doesn't feel anymore the pressure at this point of his career.
About Roubaix stage he said that it's not a stage where they can do something or attack.
About Sky he said that it's difficult to attack them because they don't have domestiques but captains used as domestiques for their team leader, only under special circumstances it's possible to attack them.
About the Giro maybe he could ride next year but it's early to say now.
