Interview

“40 years ago I was 3 and living on a farm”

Dakar is a long term personal goal for the 43 year old Australian. He has always been involved in sport, doing motorcycle Enduro, alpine mountaineering and rock climbing. Several years ago he set himself the goal of competing in the Dakar Rally and made efforts to achieve it. And he made it. Scott will finally be at the start of the Dakar 40th edition.

“As a young passionate rider I have always followed the Dakar Rally on TV. When I think at Dakar I think at extreme terrain and conditions and this is what I expect from the race this year. 40 years ago I was three years old and living on a farm. Finally I will be a protagonist of this Odissey. The route looks awesome with many dunes and mountains. As everybody I’m training hard, riding and general fitness training off the bike, but the most difficult part was to raise the budget. Coming from Australia is possibly the most expensive place to come from to compete in Dakar”.
