Stephane Tempier, Marco Aurelio Fontana and Chiara Teocchi will be back to action in World Cup's round 5 to be held in Mont-Sainte-Anne (Canada) on Sunday, August 6th. The Italian champion Teocchi will play her cards in the Under 23 Women's race with start at 8.30 am local time (GMT-4), whilst Fontana and Tempier will ride their Methanol in the Men Elite race at 2.45 pm.
Fifth placed at the European Champs, Stephan Tempier stands in the same position in World Cup Men Elite's GC with 450 points, 40 less then the closest rival. Fontana aims to come back to upper positions, after the second and third round withdrawals’ in Albstadt and Vallnord respectively.
