“Home guy” Stephane Tempier and his Team Bianchi Countervail’s teammates Marco Aurelio Fontana, Nadir Colledani and Chiara Teocchi are ready to tackle the Coupe de France VTT opener to be held in Marseille (France) on Sunday, March 25th. Teocchi will break the ice in the Women’s Elite and U23 race scheduled at 10.45 am. Colledani, Fontana and Tempier will take in Men’s Elite race at 3 pm.
“I can’t wait to compete in Marseille, particularly as the Coupe de France race in Marseille will be the only one I will take in my region for the year. I hope to climb back on the podium and deliver a good performance, counting on a growing shape. I will face strong rivals, like Marotte and Carod, and I think it’s gonna be fun” Frenchman Tempier commented.
Nadir Colledani is self-confident as well: “I’m doing a lot of good training, I like this period because I can pair MTB and gym. I usually suffer the change of season, but I think positive in view of next Sunday’s race: let’s see how it goes” the Italian 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.
