Marco Aurelio Fontana, Nadir Colledani and Chiara Teocchi turned a Offroad cycling party into a Bianchi party. The 2nd Fingers Cross - gravel and CX race organized by Lugagnano Off Road with the support of Red Bull in Vernasca (Italy) on Saturday, November 3rd - ended with a Team Bianchi Countervail's one-two in the Men's race, with the event's deviser Fontana preceding teammate Colledani, whilst Teocchi topped the Women's race.
 
"It was a fantastic day, I send a huge 'thank You' to all people coming in Vernasca in spite of the bad  weather. The event was a success, but I'm happy for the experience we shared with all the participants even more", Fontana commented. Before the challenge, the event started with a 30-km bike ride with Enduro Test and Cross Test, with riders wearing all kind of unusual clothes, from the unicorn to the sub.
 
"I think this wonderful event improved further, I liked this formula with a bike ride all together and a technical cross race then: it was a good step on the road to the new CX season" Colledani explained. "I enjoyed a demanding but funny race, both a party and a fruitful training", Teocchi said.

•    Methanol 29 FS, counting on the Racing geometry oriented to maximize the performance. Its heart, the frame, is made in carbon monocoque and relies on a 4-Bar suspension system with Horst link
•    Zolder Disc, developed to obtain the best performance in specific cyclo-cross conditions, combining lightweight and resistance
