Back from the good debut in Nove Mesto na Morave, where Stephane Tempier finished sixth rewarding the whole squad's efforts, the Team Bianchi Countervail aims to play again a leading role in XCO World Cup's round 2 to be held in Albstadt (Germany) on Sunday, May 28th. On a 4-km course with a 190-meter difference in altitudine, Chiara Teocchi will enter the Women's Under 23 race (at 9.00 am), whilst Stephane Tempier and Marco Aurelio Fontana will take in the Men Elite Race at 2.15 pm.
Stephane Tempier hopes to repeat the good performance delivered in Czech Republic last Sunday: "I'm in a good shape and I can start from the front lane. The course is less technical than Nove Mesto's one, but it's harder and more physical, with a long and demaning uphill. Nova Mesto’s race was funny but I really like Albstadt's course too, as here you can make the difference. I'm positive in view of the race", the Frenchman said.
Bianchi supplies the team with two high end carbon models with racing geometry: the revolutionary Methanol CV and Methanol 29.1 FS (full suspension). The Junior Team is equipped with Methanol 29 SX model.
