Being local to the North East I’ve seen the team develop over the past few years and I’m really excited to be part of it. Ribble Pro Cycling will provide me the perfect platform to continue to grow and build on my previous race experience. I’ve seen how the team has provided the perfect platform for riders such as John Archibald who are competing at an international level. It’s going to be a new challenge and I can’t wait to make the most of it.”
Jack Rees, Team Owner, added “Scott is going to be an invaluable addition, he is young, ambitious and from the North East which aligns with the team’s base and roots. Over the past three years Scott has raced at a very high level across Europe, he is versatile and has an uncanny ability to read a race. I am confident that in a really positive environment with the full support of both the team and our partners he will have his best season to date and perform consistently at the level I know he is capable of.”
