The Thömus maxon Swiss Mountain Bike Racing Team has made it to the top—which shows that the organization is on the right track.

The riders can rely on an experienced team who supports them before, during, and after the races. In addition to the professional commitment of the staff, team spirit is also very important.

The team spends many hours together at the races, on trips, and in the training camps. A good atmosphere is crucial for good performances. Every single person contributes and we are like a small family on the road.
