Eleventh in Germany’s opening round, Tempier will be committed to improve his display: "I have good feelings and I have a thing for this course: I am looking to improve Albstadt's performance, and hopefully move into the podium positions" the Frenchman says about a venue where he claimed a fifth place at the 2016 World Championships. "I like the course, it's demanding and technical. I'm serene and motivated" Colledani added. "It will be different than in Albstadt and I'm going to ride the Full Suspension bike too. Anyway, my goals remains the same: to gain as many positions as I can" Women Elite Series' new entry Chiara Teocchi stated.
