Team Bianchi Countervail's Marco Aurelio Fontana, Stephane Tempier and Chiara Teocchi warm up for the XCO World Cup's round 3 to be held in Vallnord (Andorra) on Sunday, July 2nd. Teocchi will ride Methanol CV in the Women's Under 23 race starting at 8.30 am. Later, at 2.45 pm, Fontana and Tempier will tackle the Men’s Elite event.
Sixth placed both in Nove Mesto na Morave (Czech Republic) and Albstadt (Germany), Tempier is seventh in the GC with 260 points, tied with Anton Cooper, sixth. Fontana sits in 27th, clearly affected by Albstadt's withdrawal. Teocchi is 18th among Under 23 Women. Team Bianchi Countervail is fifth in the UCI World Cup's MTB Teams standings with 73 points.
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.
