A racing Christmas Eve awaits Team Bianchi Countervail’s cyclocross specialists. Nadir Colledani, Marco Aurelio Fontana and Chiara Teocchi will be in the action at Cross della Vigilia (“Christmas Eve Cross”), traditional CX event to be held on Sunday, December 24th in Lurago d’Erba (Italy). In the penultimate competitive event of the calendar year, the Bianchi trio equipped with Zolder disc will be looking for positive feedbacks in view of the late season’s main goals, starting from the CX Italian Championships in Rome (January 5-7).
Fontana (back to CX World Cup last week after three years off) and Colledani aim at good displays as they already did in Silvelle, Faè di Oderzo and Gorizia. Proudly wearing her Under 23 CX European champion jersey, after giving in Tabor the encore of the 2016 triumph in Pontchateau, Teocchi will be among the favorites of the Women’s race.
Bianchi supplies the team with two high end carbon MTB models with racing geometry: the revolutionary Methanol CV and Methanol 29.1 FS (full suspension). The Junior Team is equipped with Methanol 29 SX model. Team Bianchi Countervail also ride Zolder disc in the cyclo-cross season.
