On the road to the XCO World Cup, Team Bianchi Countervail’s Nadir Colledani and Chiara Teocchi will take in the XCO Kamnik, SloXcup round 3, in Kamnik (Slovenia) on Sunday, May 12th. Colledani and Teocchi will ride their Methanol 29 FS on a demanding 4,2 km course, with a 208-meter difference in altitude, to be covered several times according to the different categories.
Winner of the SloXcup's opening round, XC Grici in Vrtojba last March 24th, Colledani looks for a positive feedback after the backache affecting his performance in Internazionali d'Italia Series round 4 in Pineto (Italy). "I feel better now, I think I overcame the problem and I can perform at my best. I won XCO Kamnik last year, I like the course but I don't dare guessing the result: I aim to deliver a good performance, to properly round-out my road to the World Cup" Colledani explained.
"I'm ready to the dress reharsal in view of a XCO World Cup I'll take in Women's Elite series: I'm excited and I can't wait for testing myself in the new category. The training period hasn't been easy, I haven't raced for a month, but I hope to get points and positive feedbacks from Kamnik's race" Teocchi commented.
