TEOCCHI: “SHAME FOR THE CRAMPS, BUT I’M HAPPY WITH MY RESULTS”
Teocchi was in contention for another Top 5 placement, before settling for seventh in the late race due to muscular issues: “I’m happy with my performance. I was fourth until the final lap, before suffering cramps: my effort of the Team Relay race somehow affected today’s performance. Anyway, I can be satisfied with my experience at the European Championships, both for the results and the performances. Now, I will move on to next Sunday’s World Cup race” Teocchi commented.
 
FONTANA AND TEMPIER TO RACE ON SUNDAY
