Video: Leveling Up with the Scott-SRAM Race Team

Dec 1, 2023

From Drama to Glory

2023 was packed full of action and delivered a wide spread of emotions. Some were incredible, some we won't miss.

The 2023 season was a special one for the SCOTT-SRAM MTB racing team, a rollercoaster of emotions and experiences that challenged the team as a whole to go to their maximum. Starting with a successful training camp and first race action in South Africa back in early February, before almost directly heading into the first big highlight of the season and toughest challenge in mountainbiking, the Cape Epic.

A year of misfortune and serious injuries that disrupted the plans right from the start. But it was also a year of historic triumphs, a season that wrote history like in a modern MTB fairytale.

Time to reflect on what made the team suffer and celebrate during this year packed full of action.

 I hope Kate moves to a different team when her contract is up. I think she needs a change and to be out of Nino's shadow (which I'm sure is hard for the men as well). But still looking forward to watching this tonight!

 If you go to a world cup race. She's not in the shadow at all. The line for her to sign autographs is 4x anyone at the event.

 I'd say that having one of the most winningest (that a word?) teammate has more pros than cons.

 @slackedmtb: I was referring to results. She's an incredible ambassador for the sport, but she's been open on social media about not performing to the level she knows she can achieve (and that she's shown she can achieve).
