Nadir Colledani finished second at 4 Stage MTB Race Lanzarote held in Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain) from Saturday to Tuesday, January 26th-29th. GC leader after the success in the uphill ITT stage-3, Team Bianchi Countervail's Italian rode his Methanol in the top positions also in the 81-km final stage, closing in 3:13:50, eight seconds behind Bartlomiej Wawak and five ahead of Karl Markt. Wawak was also first overall in the GC, with a 6-second advantage on Colledani.
"What a pity: in the late race I was impeded by an Austrian rider and Wawak was able to take advantage, making the decisive break. Anyway, while I'm very disappointed for this accident, I can be happy with my performance: I'm training well and I lived a fruitful experience here", Colledani commented.
Runner-up in the opening stage, Chiara Teocchi placed eighth in 4:01:11 in the Marathon stage won by Blaza Pintaric, closing ninth in the Women's GC.
