The Scott Trial pace quickens as we draw nearer to the annual event on 22nd October.
Diane Horner, Scott Secretary spoke with Trials Guru today, October 11th – (S Day -11)
“At present we still have a large waiting list. As you can see we have a charity team riding for Pancreatic Cancer Sufferers, and I’m delighted to say that also have managed to get a late ride for Sam Sharp whose ride this year will be very emotional as it is in memory of his father Simon, a regular Scott finisher, who died last year. Sam himself finished the course for the first time last year.
You will see that we have Miquel Gelabert and Benoit Bincaz from the World stage for the first time and our friend from last year Christian Naranjo Ruano from the Canary Islands returns and is joined by his brother Jonathan. Apparently he has done nothing but enthuse about the Scott since last year“.
Diane added: “We also have a good contingent from Ireland.
To add to the excitement, Red Bull are in attendance at the event this year and will be filming the Scott for Red Bull TV.
All in all its looking like it’s going to be a fantastic year, so fingers crossed for some good weather!
The work everyone does to promote the Scott is highly appreciated and without which the success of the Scott couldn’t be taken for granted.
I look forward to seeing you at the start field on Saturday 22nd October”.
