The Legend of MTB
Andri Frischknecht (born 7 July 1994) is the youngest male member of the SCOTT-SRAM Team. He is the son of Thomas Frischknecht, and the grandson of Peter Frischknecht, who were also professional cyclists.
A big addition to the SCOTT-SRAM Team is Lars Forster this year. As most of the Swiss riders the former U23 World Cup Champion was a bit in the shadow of Nino Schurter so far. Last year he won the European Championship in Glasgow. With this big win, he stepped out of Schurter`s shadow and the sun was shining on him, when he crossed the finish line first.
Both Kate Courtney and Nino Schurter take the top step of the podium in Les Gets. Never before in the history of UCI MTB World Cup racing have two World Champions and two World Cup leaders riding for the same team won elite races on the same day
