Press Release: Thömus maxon Swiss Mountain Bike Racing
2021 was the most successful season of Thömus maxon Swiss Mountain Bike Racing so far. By winning the UCI Mountain Bike Overall World Cup and the outstanding performances of Mathias Flückiger, the Swiss team has reached the top of the world. However, the successes have not made the Swiss team fed up, but hungry for more.
At the moment, the entire team is in a training camp in Girona, Spain. In addition to basic training on the road and mountain bike, the program includes material tests and, last but not least, team building. On Saturday (Alessandra Keller ) and Sunday (Vital Albin, Luke Wiedmann, Timo Müller, Roman Holzer) the whole team will compete in the first race of the season at the Copa Catalana Internacional in Banyoles against top-class competition.
"The main thing is to get used to a higher rhythm again after the long period without racing." says team boss Ralph Näf. And adds, "Races like this allow the riders to try out a few things and take risks. In the regular season, you don't like to experiment." Mathias Flückiger is taking his time with the start of the season. "I will support my team from the sidelines." Says the Olympic silver medalist.
Swiss support for Swiss riders
"We are in the fortunate position that the existing partners have expanded their commitment and we have gained new partners." Näf enthuses. This weekend, the team will wear the team jersey in the new design for the first time. The red jersey represents concentrated Swiss power. This is because the team not only has two strong title partners in Thömus and maxon, but also four other main Swiss partners in ÖKK, Noser Group, DT SWISS and Disentis. ÖKK and Noser Group also support the Youngstars junior team.
