We see a new Chasing Trail story pop into our inboxes every couple of months from Scott bikes, and every one gets us excited about riding our bikes somewhere new. In the eleventh episode, the crew rides out into some Norwegian Fjords.

So each of the different pro athlete representatives were in town to meet. Not everyone was stuck in a conference room for the whole time there.
