One of the best descenders in pro cycling, Vincenzo Nibali has taken to the dirt and gravel farm lanes of Italy to showcase his skills.

The Italian has put in daring descending attacks in the Grand Tours. And he has also left his rivals for dust plummeting off climbs in races like the Tour of Lombardy.
