We're not all about road riding here at ASSOS. Our passion for two wheels runs deep, and we’re equally as enthralled about a sinus line of black tarmac snaking up a mountain pass as we are about a sick flow trail. And with summer in deep swing, here is a look back through the lens of our photographers at our home UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, Lenzerheide. Hopefully you’ll feel like riding after seeing these!
Why we love Lenzerheide:
1 –It's our home race in Switzerland, arguably the modern-day home of XC MTB racing, with 6 riders from every single podium, all of whom ride for the Swiss Cycling national team. (Plus, breaking news: every single BMC MTB Racing Team rider has just been selected for the upcoming MTB World Champs!)
2 –Nino Schurter gave another masterclass in ripping descending and stellar climbing, but we're looking forward to seeing him riding in the ASSOS of the Swiss National Team later in the year.
3 –It's not all about cross country; the weekend also held a seriously grin-inducing Downhill World Cup, which saw the crowds come out to support the brave.
4 –Even though some might not realise that we’re a brand that focuses on mountain biking, we were supporting 5 teams taking part in the different races in Lenzerheide. Can you name them all?
5 –It's a proper mountain bikers' course. Ups, down, flow. Watch BMC Mountain Bike Team's Lukas Flueckiger and Lars Forster ride it.
