A big dream came true for the winners of this year's campaign with the Scott Sram Mountainbike Racing team!

A limited Scott Spark Mountain bike (valued at 13.000€) and personally presented by mountain bike star Nino Schurter.

Roeland, husband of winner Lies, sums up their unforgettable weekend in Val-di-Sol in the following lines:

“What a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

It all started when the lucky ticket was won by my wife. She was over the moon when she found out that she had won the jackpot. It was a bit unfortunate realizing afterwards that this custom Scott Spark was a size M, a size too big for her. Luckily size M fits me like glove, and my lovely wife gave the bike to me. I guess it is a kind of wedding present / all-time birthday present. That is a fair deal, I would say, and I will gladly clean and maintain her bikes from now until death do us apart.

Getting the bike was another never-to-forget affair. We were invited by Scott to Val-di-Sole (Italy) for an all-in weekend: watching short track on Friday, downhill on Saturday, and grand finale of the XCO competition on Sunday. We even took our bikes out for a few rides in the area (which is MTB heaven + thank you Scott for lending a Spark test bike). To see Nino take his 10th Overall Wordcup win on Sunday was just too cool!

The main highlight of the weekend must have been the meet-and-greet with the Scott team, and the official handover over the custom World Bicycle Relief Scott Spark. We met Nino, Kate, Lars, Frishie, and little Frishie (who is not so little btw) and had lunch all together. You could easily notice that this team is a like a family, Frishie being the big dad, and we felt very welcome. After lunch we had the officially handover the custom World Bicycle Relief Scott Spark and mister Shurter himself presented it to us. I just could not stop smiling!

I still have a smile on my face whenever I see or think about the bike. It brings back good memories. And it is literally the best bike I have ever ridden.

Thank you, Scott, thank you, World Bicycle Relief, you are just wonderful.”
