It's training camp time for Team Bianchi Countervail. The team managed by Massimo Ghirotto will be guest of the Hotel Fiordaliso in Terracina (Central Italy) from January 15th to 22nd. Stephane Tempier, Marco Aurelio Fontana and Chiara Teocchi will be at work in view of the 2018 MTB season, together with physioterapist Wais Baron and mechanic Daniele Falconi.
Due to a shoulder injury, the team’s latest addition, Nadir Colledani, is still unsure to join the training camp yet. The Italian rider suffered an accident on the mountains, resulting a dislocated clavicule. The early checks ruled out major consequences, but the final decision will be taken after a further X-ray examination.
Besides young Colledani, Team Bianchi Countervail - back from a season filled with major satisfactions - will bid on the confirmation of Stephane Tempier (who lived the best campaign of his career in 2017) and the renowned winning attitude of Marco Aurelio Fontana and Chiara Teocchi. Before tackling the MTB season, Fontana and Teocchi will also take part in the final major appointments of the cyclocross season: the CX World Cup rounds and the CX World Championships in Valkenburg.
