Chiara Teocchi (Team Bianchi Countervail) wrapped a perfect Christmas gift for herself, riding Zolder Pro disc to top the Cross della Vigilia - Memorial Giovanni Bartesaghi, CX Trofeo Piemonte Lombardia's round 8 in Lurago d'Erba (Italy) on Monday, December 24th. The former Women's Under 23 European and Italian champion preceded Silvia Persico and Rebecca Gariboldi, collecting her third CX seasonal success.
"I had good feelings and I managed to take advantage on my rivals since the early race, together with Sara Casasola. Then I soloed then to win ahead of Silvia Persico and Rebecca Gariboldi. I really wanted this success, to dedicate to Giovanni Bartesaghi" Chiara comments. Teocchi has already dedicated the 2017 CX European title to Cross della Vigilia's long-time promoter, passed away last year.
Teocchi will come back to action in Giro d’Italia Cross final round in Rome's Capannelle Hippodrome on Saturday, January 6th.
