At Christmas time we can normally expect videos where riders dress up as Santa and shred snowy trails to some Christmas music, you know the sort.

Well this year the Scott Gstaad racing team has decided to do something different with Gstaad Games.

Team manager, and helmet camera extraordinaire, Claudio Caluori believes that downhill riders are good for only one thing, riding downhill bikes. In this video he challenges Brendan Fairclough and Neko Mulally to survive in the Swiss Alps by milking a cow, making cheese, playing the Alphorn and… erm, “attracting females”.

It’s all in good fun and the contest ends in a diplomatic draw, lthough to be honest we probably agree that the riders should probably stick to just riding their bikes in future

The video is a bit of a change of pace for Christmas but if you still want to see some riding then there’s a great segment at the end with stunning Alpine vistas and never-ending singletrack.

Brendan and Neko will be back in action with the Gstaad Scott race team in 2016. The World Cup season starts at Lourdes in April.
