Chiara Teocchi's birthday is never boring at Ciclocross internazionale del Ponte in Faè di Oderzo (Italy). Team Bianchi Countervail's rider turned 20 on the day, and re-affirmed her feeling with the Northern Italian CX international race finishing second behind Alice Maria Arzuffi on Thursday, December 8th. Teocchi got to the winning post with a 36-second gap from the winner and 24 seconds ahead of Alessia Bulleri, third on the podium.
First placed in the Junior Women’s race three years ago and in the Women’s Open race last year, Teocchi had previously left Oderzo wearing the CX Giro d'Italia Cross leader's pink jersey in 2011 (as a Cadet) and 2012 (as a Junior). "I held the lead in the first two laps, then I had to settle for second when Arzuffi speeded up her pace. Anyway, I feel in good shape and I'm happy with the result" the 20-year-old from Bergamo commented.
Next Saturday, December 10th, Chiara Teocchi will ride her Zolder disc at the 12th Trofeo Città di Gorizia - 4th Master Cross Selle SMP in Gorizia (Italy). The Women’s race will start at 1.30 pm.
