With the new race season SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing got to ride their new team bikes, Spark RC 900 Worldcup. What better terrain to test them at the World`s toughest stage race, the legendary Absa Cape Epic. Dusty trails and super-dry conditions will be ridden every single day, and the material has to get through the roughest of all conditions. Olympic Champions Jenny Rissveds and Nino Schurter are equipped with the SCOTT Spark Spark RC 900 Worldcup, a bike which is not only one of the most successful full suspension bikes on the World Cup circuit, it’s also belongs to the most popular bikes for non-racers. The light and stiff race proven frame design has always appealed to a broad spectrum of riders, from elite Cross-Country and marathon racers to casual enthusiast trail riders. Thanks to numerous tech features, the Spark`s versatility has been in a class of its own for many years.
“The Meerendal trails were amazing to ride, quite a few technical sections and demanding uphills, a perfect terrain to benefit of the capability of our new Sparks. It`s the start of the season, so we are also excited checking how our new parts on the bikes work- the new Rockshox suspension performed smooth and nicely, so did the entire bike”, says Nino Schurter.
