Team Bianchi Countervail's Marco Aurelio Fontana will do his season’s debut in the Cyclocross World Cup in the sixth round of the challenge, taking place in Namur (Belgium) on Sunday, December 17th. Back from the third place at Trofeo Città di Gorizia, the Prorider will line up for Men’s Elite race, scheduled at 3.00 pm.
"We decided to plan a more intensive schedule for the cyclocross season, to be in the ideal shape in March. Namur is a step on this route and I'm really happy to go back to the 'real' North. Even if this World Cup round will be one of my first races of the season, competing in this kind of races will tell me the distance I need to bridge  and give indications on the work to plan for next months".
Bianchi supplies the team with two high end carbon MTB 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. Team Bianchi Countervail also ride Zolder disc in the cyclo-cross season.
