Features Interviews Riders

Great Scott! Audio interview with Jacob Scott

Greg Trowman speaks in-depth to one of the stand-out riders of the domestic season

Jake Scott of SwiftCarbon Pro Cycling has gone from strength to strength this year, securing a win at the South Coast Classic and then posting second at the Ryedale GP. We were lucky enough to sit down with Jake after a training session 4 days out from the Tour of Britain.

I just want to come away from this year knowing I have given it my all

We discussed Jake’s approach to training, the roller coaster of self-belief and motivation as well as his unique approach to juggling a busy training schedule and working. It’s clear from Jake’s story that his job at the local bike shop is much more than just a job and one of the many factors of support that has helped Jake become the rider he is today.
