Scott Bowden is one gutsy lad. Picked up by Dion Shaw to be a part of the 4Shaw/Giant crew, the young gun has been on the up and up ever since, riding his way up through the racing hierarchy. Earlier this year he was selected as part of the Junior Worlds squad. Remarkably the Tasmanian declined the opportunity instead deciding to focus on his studies. That is one hard decision for an athlete to make and we believe that shows a particular kind of mettle. With his head screwed on straight, we should be seeing him racing hard once again soon. Recently Simon McLaine teamed up with Scott for a day on the trails around Hobart, it was a gloomy day but they made it work.
