SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing has renewed contracts with Olympic Champion Nino Schurter and World Cup Champion Kate Courtney. Both have extended their contracts until 2022. The team, which is still under contract with all its sponsors until the end of 2020, has also extended contracts with SRAM and RockShox until 2022.
Just like the rest of the team, Nino Schurter had a contract until the end of 2020. At the age of 33, the winner of three Olympic medals, 8 World Championships and 7 World Cup Champion titles as well as 32 World Cup races, has committed to two more years racing at the highest level beyond 2020.
“I’m anything but tired of what I do – whether racing or winning. There is still a lot I want to do and to win, and a lot we can achieve together with this team,” Nino Schurter said.
World Cup Champion Kate Courtney, who joined the SCOTT in 2019, said “Last season, when I joined the SCOTT-SRAM team I knew I was being given the opportunity to learn from the best. At the time, however, I had no idea the depth of the impact the team, environment and support would have on me personally and professionally.
“I am incredibly proud and excited to extend my contract with the team and to retain our key sponsors with SCOTT and SRAM. When it comes to working with this group of people and riding on what is in my opinion the best equipment available – I couldn’t say yes fast enough!”
SRAM & RockShox
Being major partners since 2002, SRAM and RockShox have a long tradition with SCOTT and the team as long-standing partners. SRAM stepped up as a title sponsor in 2017. Extending the cooperation for a further two years after the 2020 season provides stability to the team and ensures a strong commitment.
Team Manager Thomas Frischknecht said “In addition to the racing results, which speak for themselves, there is a fruitful bond between the team and its partners involved in product development. We love contributing to the creation of the fastest bikes and equipment on the planet, and really enjoy this involvement with both SCOTT and SRAM/RockShox as well with all of our other partners.”
