First things first. Highlights from Trans Schwarzwald almost a month ago:

And then the first big European CX race of the season with winners like Eva Lechner and Francis Mourey. Not so many racing with disc brakes.

Ending is the biggest MTB event this week. Perskindol Swiss Epic. An epic stage race in Switzerland with a lot of big mountains. Here is a video from the Prologue in Verbier:

And here is from the 1st stage, today:

Scott Scale 650b

For a couple of days I talked about how I liked to ride a Scott Addict but don’t like Scott so can’t get one. Yesterday Scott teased me again and seemed to have made an awesome bike even for us customers. Scott Scale for 650b both in 710 model with light IMP Carbon fibre frame and cheaper 740 with alu frame. But they also made the bike that I like.

Nino Schurter replica, not that my biggest idol is Schurter even when I like him but the features are nice. Special geometry and only available in medium:

Not saying so much for me, but the things I like is the integrated seatclamp:

The yellow colour, you should know that by now 😉

Nice with a Magura fork too instead of Fox, but the most important thing. No small pressfit bottom bracket that Scott used for a while but BB30 on this:

Seems really nice, but it only comes in 200 examples so you got to be fast.
