A NOTE FROM THE COACH
Scott's journey with Njinga has been incredible. He has gone from a strong sportive rider to a multi day stage racer and mountain goat climbing sensation.
When I first met Scott he was softly spoken and quite unassuming but once I put him on the wattbike he totally changed. He was a strong rider that simply needed to improve his climbing power, stamina and race sharpness to compete competitively . Adding structure and progressive focused training sessions around building stamina and muscular strength paid dividends. We achieved Scott’s power to weight goal of over 4 watts per kg to be able to race while still climb with authority.
What impressed me most about Scott was his work ethic and mental toughness. He became one of our strongest climbers in Njinga so seeing him conquer one of the most iconic Tour de France climbs 3 different ways to make the Club des Cingles was special.
Scott (& his wife Ruth) also became a member of the Njinga Collective, our not for profit cycling club and after his first season he qualified as a Njinga Ride Captain. Then later that year he represented the Njinga Collective at the Giro de Sardegna multi day stage race in Italy. Scott just loves cycling and always had a big grin on his face whenever he is on the bike.
Scott was a great mentor to many of our new riders within Njinga, helping them along their cycling journey and now more recently became a father and is enjoying a break from the bike while having a family.
