April 12, 2013
In this instalment of Where Are They Now?, Jamie Jowett catches up with one of the legends of Australian cycling, a man who made a mark as a rider, as a team director and now as a commentator and cycling administrator. It seems silly to ask about Scott’s whereabouts when we often see him on …
