Never Change A Winning Team
SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing Team continues its winning streak and looks into a bright future heading into the coming seasons. Both Lars Forster and Andri Frischknecht have renewed their contracts joining Kate Courtney and Nino Schurter for the coming 2 years.
Feldbach, Switzerland. The SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing Team, founded in 2002, is built on consistency. Many partners of the team, including SCOTT and SRAM are on board since day one. Nino Schurter goes into his 19th season next year. With talents like Lars Forster, Andri Frischknecht and Kate Courtney the team is set for consistency into the future.
Lars Forster is no doubt one of the most talented off- road racers of the younger generation of mountain bike athletes. At only 27 he has already managed to gather impressive palmares to his name. European Champion 2018, Cape Epic Champion 2019, Swiss Epic Champion 2020 and 3-times Swiss Cyclo-Cross Champion – Just to name the titles of the recent years.
Among the many victories, the World Cup win at last years final round in Snow Shoe, USA stands out the most. Here he showed what he is capable of, a first taste of what to expect in the future.Besides his obvious talent on mountain bikes, Lars Forster loves to race cyclo-cross whenever possible. The 2020 mountain bike season is still in full swing with the big races yet to come, but the opportunity to switch to CX for the first race of the season was something Lars did not want to let go of. At the EKZ Cross Tour in Baden, Switzerland, he showed his skills on the narrow wheels winning in style.
On a wave of success Lars Forster’s statement about his future sounds promising:
“I’m super excited to continue my career with the world’s best cross-country team. There is still much to learn on my way to the very top but I already had the chance to see what it takes to win. Having the chance to learn from N1NO, experiencing the great team spirit and the powerful support by our staff and partners really makes me feel like I am in good hands. I now have all the ingredients to continue my journey to the next level.”
