Chiara Teocchi (Team Bianchi Countervail) placed 14th in UCI MTB World Championships Under 23 Women's XCO race in Lenzerheide (Switzerland) on Friday, September 7th. The 21-year-old Italian completed the race in 1:30:26, with a 7:33 gap from the winner, Swiss Alessandra Keller.
"I expected more from this race. When you compete at the Worlds, against the best riders in the World, struggling to tune in with the course means slipping out of the top positions. My only consolation is that I haven't crashed" Chiara commented afterwards.
Teocchi's teammates Nadir Colledani, Marco Aurelio Fontana and Stephane Tempier will enter the MTB Worlds Elite Men's race on Saturday, September 8th at 3.30 PM.
Bianchi supplies the team with two high end carbon models with racing geometry: the revolutionary Methanol CV and the Methanol 29.1 Full Suspension.
