Bianchi + Team MTB + Product
Team Bianchi Countervail's Marco Aurelio Fontana, Stephane Tempier and Chiara Teocchi will be among the most expected riders at the 17th Marlene Südtirol Sunshine Race, Internazionali d’Italia Series' round 4, to be held on Sunday, April 9th in Nals (Italy). After the first three rounds, Fontana tops the Men’s Elite series with 78 points, tied with leader jersey's owner Maxime Marotte, whilst Stephane Tempier - winner of the 2016 Marlene Sudtirol Sunshine Race - is third, not far from the throne (70). Teocchi is third overall in the Women Open Series with 55 points, 7 less than leader Serena Calvetti, and runner-up among Under 23 Women. The Women’s Open race is scheduled at 12.30 pm, the Men’s Open one at 2.30 pm.
 
FONTANA: "I FEEL FINE, WE AIM FOR A GOOD RESULT"
"We go to Nalles as Men Elite series' leader, with the same points of Marotte. We'll tackle an old-style demanding course, less suited to me than Montichiari’s. Anyway, the last race has proved I'm in a good shape. We’ll find again a world-class startlist, but both Stephane and I aim to ride in the top positions and deliver a good result" Internazionali d'Italia Series round 1 winner Marco Aurelio Fontana says.
