Colledani grazes top ten in Olympic preview


The Team Bianchi Countervail Italian rider finished 12th in Izu (Japan), in the dress rehearsal of the Olympic race of Tokyo 2020

The Team Bianchi Countervail riders spent a fascinating weekend in Izu (Japan), where the Olympic test event took place on Sunday 6th, in the location where the Tokyo 2020 Mountain Bike Cross Country medals will be awarded. A valuable experience for Nadir Colledani, Stephane Tempier and Chiara Teocchi – all competing with their respective national teams – to get acquainted with the threats of a course that everybody called particularly demanding, in view of a possible selection for the Olympic Games next summer.

Colledani achieved the best result among the Team athletes, finishing 12th (+1.31) in the men’s race won by reigning World and Olympic Champion Nino Schurter. In the same race, Stephane Tempier (+3.02) placed 19th, while Chiara Teocchi finished in 26th position (+9.26) in the women’s race won by Swiss Jolanda Neff.

  • Methanol CV RS, engineered to be the best XCO and XCM racing machine, without compromises, and enhanced with the innovative and exclusive Bianchi CV System powered by Countervail to eliminate vibrations.
  • Methanol CV FS, the most complete full-suspension XC race bike, enhaned by Bianchi CV System powered by Countervail.
  • Zolder Pro disc, latest evolution of the carbon platform designed by Bianchi for cyclocross, combining lighweight and resistance to obtain the best performance.
