Velosolutions Racing might be a thing of the past, but Scott will still be coming into this season strong with a fresh line up. Returning Scott rider Brendan Fairclough isn’t only fast, but also one of the most stylish riders out there. Dean Lucas has proven he has the speed to threaten the podium, and is coming into the season healthy and strong. Flo Payet may have struggled with injury last year, but looks to be back up to speed for 2019. Marine Cabirou will be riding the wave of her 4th place finish at the World Champs last year, and is certainly a rider to keep an eye on.
With the race calendar fast approaching, training and new bike testing is underway for the Scott DH Factory team, which looks to be riding a more refined version of the new downhill bike we saw Fairclough on last year. This version appears to be carbon, but there’s no official word yet on further details.
