    Lars Forster Champion of Europe

    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.

    The all-round talent is currently the Swiss Cyclo-Cross National Champion. Lars is familiar to the World Cup podium and is a top 10 UCI ranked rider. His 2019 season started great, with a Absa Cape Epic win in south Africa, together with Nino Schurter. This prestigious Race is a super hard multiple day mountain bike race and the SCOTT-SRAM am boys proofed once more, that you have to beat them, if you want to stand on top of the podium.

    Forster`s ambitions match with the ones of Kate Courtney and Nino Schurter.

    The 25-year-old Olympic athlete says: “Developing further towards the Tokyo Olympics, it is a huge benefit to be aside of the World’s fastest Nino Schurter. Since the beginning of my career I was dreaming to become a member of the team of Thomas Frischknecht, my idol of my early days. Together we can reach the next level.”

    Team director Thomas Frischknecht knows Lars Forster very well. Lars not only lives very close to the team headquarter, he is also a training buddy of Andri Frischknecht and close friends with Yanick-the-Mechanic Gyger. After all this time the team is super exited to welcome Lars to the family. Good Luck for the season!
