In 2002 a new mountain bike development project was born as a new team under the name of SCOTT SWISSPOWER Mountain Bike Team. The concept of this team is to offer Switzerland's best young mountain bike talents an opportunity to develop their skills and focus on their career under the wings of Thomas Frischknecht as team leader and long time national coach Andi Seeli as team director. The management of this project grants with professionalism, high experience and great know how. The results speak for itself. Riders such as Florian Vogel (European champion and vice- world champion 08) and Nino Schurter (medalist Olympic games Beijing, under 23 world champion 08, elite world champion 09 and overall World Cup winner 10) developed from Junior's to some of the best riders in the world.
