Thomas Peter will take over the role of managing mountain biking for the Swiss Cycling Federation effective in September. The federation called Thomas an "expert" regarding mountain biking and noted that he has worked with several teams so far in his career. He graduated from the sports school Macolin.

Peter will take over the position of Sonja Stutz, who is returning to school in Lausanne to pursue a masters degree.

The Swiss consistently produce internationally successful mountain bikers including riders like current world champion Christoph Sauser, Ralf Naef, Florian Vogel, Martin Gujan, Lukas Flückiger, Nino Schurer, Nathalie Schneitter, Petra Henzi, Katrin Leumann and Esther Süss, just to name a few.
