Team Bianchi Countervail's Nadir Colledani will take in Bikefestival Basel XCO HC, Swiss Bike Cup round 7, cross country race to be held in Basel (Switzerland) on Sunday, September 2nd. Back from UCI MTB World Cup final round, Colledani is shaping his best form in view of the 2018 World Championships along his teammates Marco Aurelio Fontana, Stephane Tempier and Chiara Teocchi. Basel's Men Elite race will start at noon. The Italian will ride Methanol 29.1 FS.
"I'm looking for a good pace, to finalise the training in higher ground I did in the latest days. Moreover, I'll try to gain points after some races affected by punctures and the humble performance in La Bresse. I trained well, so I'm confident. I'll focus then on the Worlds, to be ridden on a course I really like, where last year I performed well: a Top 20 display would be a good finish for me" Colledani explains.
Bianchi supplies the team with two high end carbon models with racing geometry: the revolutionary Methanol CV and the Methanol 29.1 Full Suspension.
