Nino’s Custom 60th Anniversary Scott Spark
N1NO Schurter managed to win his 29th World Cup. In front of a huge crowd in Val di Sole, the Olympic Champion dominated the race from the first lap. However, at the end the 32 year old Swiss had to battle it out with local Gerhard Kerschbaumer. Like the two previous years, N1NO attacked at the very same spot he already decided races in 2016 and 2017 against Julien Absalon and Stephane Tempier.
N1NO Schurter now leads the Overall World Cup with 1130 pts ahead of Mathieu van der Poel (820 pts), who got 3rd today.
In World Cup racing, the eyes are on the Olympic and World Champion no matter what. Showing up with a 90ies-style Retro Spark in green and orange, a purple helmet and yellow shoes even boosts he attention to #nextlevel.
The story of celebrating the 60th aniversary of SCOTT Sports with a special retro bike and kit that goes with it was in many ways a succseful one. Learn more below.
SCOTT is celebrating its 60th anniversary throughout the 2018 season. To celebrate this event, one of their most iconic athletes – Olympic and World Champion Nino Schurter – was given a Spark RC 900 World Cup Retro Special Edition to race at the World Cup in Val di Sole, Italy. Its funky green and orange design dates back to the 90ies and is a tribute to the very first Mountain bike which SCOTT created, the so-called “Pro Racing” from 1990.
