Chiara Teocchi achieved her podium spot at CX Italian Championships on Sunday, January 13th. Equipped with Zolder Pro disc, Team Bianchi Countervail’s rider finished third her maiden Tricolore race in Women’s Elite series in Milan’s Idroscalo. Teocchi completed the race in 39:28, with a 1:10 gap from Eva Lechner and less than one minute behind Alice Maria Arzuffi. Nadir Colledani placed seventh in Men’s Elite series.
 
“I aimed for a podium spot here, I knew my main opponents were Lechner and Arzuffi and it was so. Their road to the Italian Championships was different than mine, they both rode abroad acquiring a faster pace in view of today’s event. I could ride in Eva’s wake in the early race, until Arzuffi passed me. I went ahead with my pace and I didn’t overdo it. I’m happy with my result, now I’ll rest for one week before starting to train for the MTB season”, Teocchi explained.
 
Nadir Colledani experienced a bad day in Milan. In spite of the good shape and the high spirit he showed at the race eve, the Italian managed to fight for the top positions only in the first two laps, before sliding down to seventh, two minutes and 53 seconds behind Gioele Bertolini.
