Video: Peter Sagan not the only pro who likes to pull a wheelie - here's Vincenzo Nibali doing one

Giro d'Italia champion shows his skills on last day of Bahrain-Merida training camp on Tenerife...

We all know that whether he's out training or riding in cycling's biggest races, Peter Sagan likes to pull the odd wheelie - but he's far from the only pro who enjoys rolling along just on his rear wheel.

Vincenzo Nibali - along with Trek-Segafredo's Alberto Contador, the only current rider to have won all three of cycling's Grand Tours - has got in on the action too, with the Instagram video below shot on the final day of his Bahrain-Merida's training camp on Tenerife.

A pretty impressive wheelie it is, too, with the Sicilian looking pretty relaxed as he pedals past the camera.

Here's the bike he did it on - the 2017 Merida Scultura.
