Having first began mountain biking as a 14-year-old, Tasmanian Scott Bowden will make his Olympic debut in Rio.
Bowden proved he was one of the nation’s top riders when he claimed the overall 2014/15 National Series title. He went on to win both the Australian and Oceania U23 titles in 2015 before finishing just outside the top twenty in U23 World Cup events in Canada and Italy. At the U23 2015 World Championships he finished 34th.
Bowden finished with the bronze medal at the Oceania Championships behind New Zealand’s Anton Cooper and Rio teammate Daniel McConnell. He also claimed the gold in the U23 event.
He again lined up in the U23 comeptition at the 2016 Cairns World Cup and placed seventh just over two minutes behind the gold medal.
I raced BMX for 5 years at various competitions across Australia.
