News in from the SCOTT Sports racing department - the international mountain bike downhill SCOTT11 has teamed up with the highly recognised alpine destination of Gstaad Saanenland. The team from now on is named GSTAAD-SCOTT. Gstaad’s commitment to develop an entirely new bike destination concept makes this partnership even more exciting, especially as the network behind SCOTT with Sébastien Giraldi, Ben Walker and Velosolutions will bring in a lot of experience in trail building and bike park management.
GSTAAD-SCOTT continues to attack in the downhill world cup with its athletes Brendan Fairclough, Emilie Siegenthaler, Noel Niederberger, Floriane Pugin and 4X riders Adrian Weiss and Mirco Weiss. French youngster Patrick Thome has just teamed up with the squad. Former downhill pro Cyril Langeau, who was a team mate of manager Claudio Caluori back in 2002, is joining the team as sportive director.
With Gstaad as the new team base, Brendan Fairclough is considering a new career as a skier….
Same as it was for SCOTT11, the support of Gstaad Saanenland allows GSTAAD - SCOTT to have a development team with Felix Klee, Pascal Tinner, Dominic Tinner, Manuel Marty and Tim Kälin under the same roof.
GSTAAD-SCOTT keeps pushing the limits with its long time sponsors DT Swiss, Schwalbe, SHIMANO, FOX Racing Shox, Syncros and e*thirteen chain guides and Red Bull.
