At the last minute, Nino Schurter has changed his partner for the Cape Epic 2019, Andri Frischknecht was not at his best, so Lars Forster has been the chosen one to run with Nino and try to win the so-called Tour de France for mountain bike.

But as Scott Sram mechanicm Yannick the Mechanic says: "the Cape Epic is not only a difficult test for the bikers, but also for the material. Literally, we rebuilt their bikes again every night. "So the bikes are as important as the preparation and for this occasion Nino Schurter will run with a Scott Spark full of details.

Attention to the detail of this button under the grip, it is a "homemade solution" to locate the unlocking of the Reverb AXS
The whole SRAM AXS group. It seems that Nino will carry spare batteries on top because this is number 1
The Syncros seat integrates the anchor to install the GoPro camera. The battery of the Reverb AXS can be exchanged with the change if necessary
The front of the Spark looks clean by eliminating the cable with the Reverb seatpost and the SRAM group, both from AXS
In the Cape Epic it is essential to carry a hand pump and Nino has chosen to carry it in the bottle cage
