After Chiara Teocchi's fifth spot in Women's Under 23 European Championships, the Team Bianchi Countervail get ready to storm the Men's Elite continental event. Nadir Colledani, Marco Aurelio Fontana and Stephane Tempier will take in the XCO European Championships in Glasgow (UK) on Tuesday, August 7th. The start is scheduled at 14.30 GMT.
"I'm ready for the European Championships, after the good work I’m feeling good. As I'm intrigued by the course I aim for a podium" explained Stephane Tempier, fifth placed last year in Darfo Boario Terme (Italy), after having led a long the race.
Sixth placed in the 2017 edition, Marco Aurelio Fontana is thrilled and ready to wrap a great performance for himself and his fans: "The XCO Europeans are an exciting race and gives a good opportunity in this moment of the season. In the wake of the crescendo in the last races, I feel in a good shape and I'm sure to perform well, if the course is fast as they say", Fontana argued.
Nadir Colledani is hopeful and self-confident about the Scottish race. "At home the weather was cool and I could train as I planned. The course may be fit for my skills, I'll ride on Methanol CV. I can't wait to race both in Glasgow and then in Mont-Sainte-Anne's Word Cup race, my favourite one" the Men's Under 23 vice European champion Nadir Colledani adds.
