Eurobike 2016: Jenny Rissved’s Olympic Winning Scott Spark

by 1

Barely two weeks ago, the worlds fastest mountain bikers flew to Rio to compete in the Olympic Cross Country mountain bike race. Making for a marketing wet dream, Scott Sports helped pilot both the mens and women’s Olympic Gold medallists to victory on the technical Rio racecourse. Nino Schurter took out the mens race, while Jenny Rissveds went for glory in the women’s race. During Eurobike, Scott was proudly displaying Rissved’s Scott Spark for all to see.

Rissved’s was running a SRAM 1×12 Eagle drivetrain on her Scott Spark race bike. Note the enormous profile on those chunky chainstays, which makes for masses of pedalling stiffness when hammering out of the saddle.

Appropriate Ritchey cockpit for a rider as decorated as Rissveds.

Using the Tracloc lever system, Rissveds is able to control both her fork and shock simultaneously with the flick of a lever.

Tubeless? Pfft, it’s all about tubulars in Olympic XC racing! Rissveds rocks handmade Dugast tubular tyres that are glued onto her carbon DT Swiss wheels.
