Boardman Bikes signs Drew Scott, son of legendary six-time Ironman world champion Dave Scott.
Boardman Bikes – the world-class, award-winning British bicycle brand has proudly announced the sponsorship of their third Ironman athlete – Drew Scott.
Drew joins the outstanding Boardman Elite triathlon sponsorship program – which won men’s Olympic Gold and Bronze medals and the Ironman & ITU World titles in 2012.
Alan Ingarfield, Co-Founder of Boardman Bikes was enthusiastic about the signing. He said: “Drew is an awesome talent and has been on my radar for quite sometime. His father is a complete living legend and a total inspiration for the sport and a personal hero of mine. And his mother, Anna Scott-Kube is equally inspiring – swimming for the US national team between 87-88. It’s just fantastic to see Drew’s pedigree and talent also being recognized with his ‘breakthrough season’ seeing him win amateur triathlete of the year. (USA Triathlon 2012 – Triathlete of the Year) From a Boardman brand’s perspective supporting an emerging new talent is just so exciting. And as we have seen and done with Pete Jacobs and the Brownlee Brothers we are here to support him and help him win. A real bright star with a phenomenal future…”
Drew will be riding the Kona-winning Boardman AiR TT 9.8, the flagship bike in the Tri/TT range designed by British cycling legend Chris Boardman. “Working with Drew and all our elite athletes always proves to be an inspiring, informative and valuable process and allows us to address the specific tri-focused challenges in our pursuit to perfect pure performance with the latest technology, engineering and R&D programs – all of which are designed to win.” states Chris Boardman, R&D Director and Co-Founder.
Drew Scott said: “I’m very excited to be partnering with Boardman Bikes and fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them as I begin my professional triathlon career. The work and dedication that has been put into the development of their bikes, led by Chris Boardman, is extremely impressive. To be able to learn from someone like Chris as I continue to progress in the sport will be fantastic. I can’t wait to be racing aboard the AiR TT 9.8” adds Drew.
Drew will be focusing on a race schedule that builds to the 70.3 World Championships in September. Drew will be joining fellow US-race focused Boardman riding triathletes including Kyle Leto (USA), Jimmy Archer (USA), Josh Rix (Aus), James Hadley (UK) and Richard Allen (UK).
