Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) has yet to win in 2019, but says his form is "right where it needs to be" as he aims for a third Giro d'Italia title.

Nibali won the race in 2013 and 2016 in addition to the 2014 Tour de France and 2010 Vuelta a España. He was last seen firing in Liège-Bastogne-Liège and in the Tour of the Alps, trying to upset the Team Ineos duo Pavel Sivakov and Tao Geoghegan Hart.
