In addition, Nadir Colledani (Bianchi Countervail) is expected to feature in the run along with Tempier and Kerschbaumer, after impressing in San Marino where he preceded Nino Schurter in a tight race for the runner-up spot.
In the women’s race, Marika Tovo (Ghost Factory Team) and Chiara Teocchi (Bianchi Countervail) look for redemption, whilst Vera Medvedeva (Metallurgica Veneta) and Giorgia Marchet (Team Rudy Project) will look to factor in the pursuit for the podium positions.
