It was the year with the most spectators at the world cup and the world championships in Andorra did not disappoint adding to that!
After two very muddy training days, the racing took place at perfect weather conditions in front of a huge crowd, on the steepest track of the year.

Brendan Fairclough loved the difficult track, but was slowed down in the second half by a mechanical problem. He finished in 17th position. This is not the result he was aiming for…… but there is still another event for him to come to show his skills: Red Bull Rampage will take place on October 17th in Utah.

Neko Mulally wasn’t able to keep his fingers off the brakes as much as he wanted to. He finished the world championships in 25th position.

Gstaad-Scott will continue straight away with tests for next season while the riders are still in top shape. It’s going to be a autumn and winter.
We’ll start by sending Neko and Brendan to Gstaad for a week of special “high altitude training”.
We’re excited to announce already that we are going to continue with both our riders Brendan Fairclough and Neko Mulally as well as with our main sponsors GSTAAD, SCOTT and FOX.
