Team Bianchi Countervail’s athletes will come back to action at the Fingers Cross on Saturday, November 3rd. Marco Aurelio Fontana, Nadir Colledani and Chiara Teocchi will ride their Zolder Disc in the race devised by Marco Aurelio Fontana and organized by Luganano Off Road with the support of Red Bull in Vernasca (Northern Italy).
The Bike Ride, open to every rider and bike category, starts at 2PM, and features an Enduro Test and a Cross Test (the latter including part of Fontana’s winter training course). The race will start at 5:00 PM. “The first part of the event, open to all riders, will be really fun with muddy and stony stretches. We’ll then stop for a drink and get ready to take in the short-track style race, open to gravel and cyclocross bikes. I invited all the participants to bring their personal style in the event, both in bikes and clothing, either fancy or elegant. The goal is to have fun with style, without any competitive pressure”.
The Team Bianchi Countervail is equipped with the following models:
•             Methanol CV, the first ever mountain bike frame enhanced with the innovative and exclusive Bianchi CV System powered by Countervail, assuring a total “After-Shock Control” by eliminating vibrations that pass through the suspension after impact and from trail buzz
•             Methanol 29 FS, counting on the Racing geometry oriented to maximize the performance. Its heart, the frame, is made in carbon monocoque and relies on a 4-Bar suspension system with Horst link
•             Zolder Disc, developed to obtain the best performance in specific  cyclo-cross conditions, combining lightweight  and resistance
