Okay, it might not be us, but the Scott-SRAM mountain bike team features two World Champions and the best fleet of bikes to choose from.

2019 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Scott-SRAM. Already known for seven-time World Champion Nino Schurter, the squad wasn’t happy with settling. This winter, they went after, and signed, newly-crowned women’s XCO World Champion Kate Courtney, putting both World Champions in the same team for the first time in the modern era of mountain biking.

It’s a pairing that promises big results in the season ahead, and they have some serious firepower to back them up, too. They squad has Lars Forster and Andri Frischknecht also on the roster. The quartet spent the last few weeks getting ready for an ambitious campaign that starts in earnest with the Cape Epic in mid-March.

Kate Courtney, the first American to win a World Championship in over two decades, will focus her season on the full World Cup and defending her world title. It’s a special season as she looks to hold onto the rainbow jersey, with the 2019 World Championships taking place in North America at Mount Sainte Anne in Canada this Septemeber.

At the shop, we’re really excited to see just how far SCOTT-SRAM can push this year. For Nino and for Kate, it’s a season where one will look to continue a dynastic dominance and the other looks to begin her own.
