Team Bianchi Countervail’s Nadir Colledani went close to his third seasonal CX success, riding Zolder Pro Disc to second at the 14th Trofeo Città di Gorizia, on the course in Gorizia’s Parco Piuma (Italy). Colledani covered eight laps in 1h01:45, with a 8-second gap from winner Gioele Bertolini and a 32-second advantage on Cristian Cominelli.
“I’m really satisfied with my performance and result. Today I felt better than in Faè and I managed to remain with Bertolini for more than half race. It was not easy at all, and it wasn’t easy for him to distance me. I’m grateful to my team and I can say I’m happy” Colledani explains. Twenty-four hours earlier, the Italian had been a brilliant fourth at Ciclocross Internazionale del Ponte in Faè di Oderzo.
The consequences of the crash in the first lap of Faè di Oderzo’s race (where she was tenth), affected Chiara Teocchi’s performance in Gorizia. The former Women’s Under 23 European champion was forced to withdrawal due to pain in her right wrist and hip.
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 Pro disc, developed to obtain the best performance in specific cyclo-cross conditions, combining lightweight and resistance
