Team Bianchi Countervail’s Nadir Colledani rode Methanol 29 FS to the podium at XCO Kamnik, SloXcup round 3, held in Kamnik (Slovenia) on Sunday, May 12th. The 24-year-old Italian placed third in 1:27:14, behind the fellow countrymen Luca Braidot and Daniele Braidot.
 
On a 4,2 km course with a 208-meter difference in altitude, made muddy and harder by the rain copiously fallen during the previous night and morning, Colledani was part of the leading trio with the Braidot twins in the early race, before settling for third when Luca Braidot attacked in the third lap.
 
A mechanical problem in the third lap affected Chiara Teocchi's performance and result: the Team Bianchi Countervail Italian finshed sixth in the Women's Open race topped by Eva Lechner.
