Team Gstaad-Scott look to be having a great time already this season with plenty of roadtrips and team events, and of course the odd spot of racing. In the last week they’ve been putting out edits from their pump track tour of Switzerland, visiting the best of the Velosolutions (a trail building company) pump tracks.
Their final stop was in Zurich at the impressively long track – 1000metres?! If you’ve ridden pump tracks for skills and fun then you’ll be looking at this longingly, we certainly are.

The weather game seems to be a pattern of the Tour de Pump. It only took a few laps in the brand new bikepark Zürich until it started raining. A few minutes later, the rain turned into hail! Our drones had to land and hide under the Red Bull tents until it stopped pouring down. 30 minutes later, we tried again, but it only took another 10 minutes until it poured again. This game continued pretty much all day long.
Nevertheless, the Gstaad-Scott riders and the guests from Timo Pritzels Scott Voltage team, Louis Reboul, Benoit Chauvet and Timo Pritzel himself, kept riding all day long, pulling out tricks and lines that we didn’t imagine when we built the park.
One day later, the park was flooded with hundreds of kids that had just as much fun as the pros from Gstaad-Scott and Scott Voltage!
