A few hours before the start of the Nove Mesto World Cup, we had the opportunity to take a close look at the Scott Spark that Nino Schurter will ride over the weekend. The Spark of the World Champion continues to serve as a testing laboratory and includes a few prototypes.

Nino Schurter himself posted a picture on his social networks with a general image of his Scott Spark. Don't you see anything weird in the photo above? The Swiss is all troll and has included in the photo the ass of what looks like his mechanic, Yanick.
