The Shark of Messina Eyes the Highway to the Danger Zone: Taiwan KOM


I am sorry! I could not help myself.

When I heard the news that a current GC favorite in Vincenzo Nibali (The Shark of Messina), had registered for the Taiwan KOM race this October 20th, I was pleasantly shocked that our little local race has been attracting top shelf talent. First Pooley, then Cuddles and now Nibbles.

Nibali has won the three big grand tours and is a fierce competitor. It will be fun to see what this new level of talent will do to our backyard climb.
