Team Bianchi Countervail get ready to tackle their second HC race in eight days. The riders led by team manager Massimo Ghirotto will take in the Oeztaler Forest Cross, Mountainbike Liga Austria's round 3, to be held in Haiming (Austria) on Sunday, April 22nd. Back from a positive week-end in Nals (Italy), where Stephane Tempier went really close to win the Men Open race and Chiara Teocchi placed third among Under23 Women, the Frenchman and the young Italian will move to Austria together with teammates Nadir Colledani and Marco Aurelio Fontana, with the goal to steal the show again.
Haiming's demanding race will be also a good test on the road to next World Cup's round to be held in Albstadt (Germany) and Nove Mesto (Czech Republic) in May. As he did last year, Tempier is leaning towards the Methanol 29.1 FS, as well as Colledani, whilst Fontana and Teocchi will ride Methanol CV.
The women's race including Elite, Under 23 and Junior riders will start at 12.30 pm. The Elite Men will be in the mix from 2.45 pm. The event will take place on a 4,3 km course with a 190m difference in altitude: Teocchi will repeat it 5 times, Colledani, Fontana and Tempier 7.
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.
