The SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing Team (formerly SCOTT-Odlo MTB Racing and SWISSPOWER) has a long history in mountain bike racing. It all started in 2002, when Thomas Frischknecht became the face of SCOTT SWISSPOWER racing team with former national coach Andi Seeli. The team’s philosophy of developing young, talented riders — such as Kate Courtney, Florian Vogel and Nino Schurter — and bringing them into a professional structure has turned their riders into national, world, World Cup and Olympic champions.
