Scott11 is now called GSTAAD-SCOTT

Marathon have become Snickers, Opal Fruits are now Starburst and Prince became, well, I’m not sure exactly.

So, following in the great tradition of name changes the Scott11 team is now called Gstaad-Scott.

I know it sounds like an expletive but Gstaad is actually a Swiss alpine resort.

You pronounce it something like…Shhhh-Starred. The G is silent, as in string.

The number 11 is now free to sponsor a team if anybody is interested.

As well as the name change, the Gstaad-Scott team have signed up fast French youngster Patrick Thome and have also added a “sportive director”, former downhill pro, Cyril Langeau.

These two will join Brendan Fairclough, Emilie Siegenthaler, Noel Niederberger, Floriane Pugin and 4X riders Adrian Weiss and Mirco Weiss on the main team.

Gstaad-Scott are also supporting a development team with Felix Klee, Pascal Tinner, Dominic Tinner, Manuel Marty and Tim Kälin under the same roof. They’ve got enough riders for a football team!

Sponsor wise, they’ll keep long time supporters DT Swiss, Schwalbe, SHIMANO, FOX Racing Shox, Syncros and e*thirteen chain guides and Red Bull.
