Team Bianchi Countervail's Stephane Tempier, Nadir Colledani and Chiara Teocchi will take in Titano XCO, Internazionali d'Italia Series' round 3 to be held in San Marino on Sunday, April 28th. Winner of the first two rounds - Andora Cup and Marlene Südtirol Sunshine Race - Tempier sees Titano XCO as a chance to strengthen his Internazionali d'Italia Series' lead, but also as a good test in view of the XCO World Cup, given the presence of the likes of Nino Schurter, Lars Forster and Gerhard Kerschbaumer. The Frenchman will count on the help of highly-motivated teammate Colledani, whilst Chiara Teocchi can't wait to be in the action again, among Women.
"We'll explore a new course in a new location: to hold the leader's jersey is my main goal of the week-end. We are all looking forward the XCO World Cup and the main favourite Schurter is also going to race in San Marino, so I think we'll live an exciting race" Tempier commented.
The Internazionali d'Italia Series round 3 will be held in Montecchio's Park, at the foot of Titano Mountain whose name the event bears. The bikers will tackle a 4,2 km with a 193-meter difference in altitude. The Women's race with Teocchi will start at 1.00 pm CET, the Men's race with Tempier Colledani at 3.30 pm CET.
