Dirt Norco: The Jordan Scott Project

Have you ever wondered if you could race a world cup?

After riding a downhill bike for the first time in Ireland just this winter with Ben Reid while Ben was training for the 2012 race season, Jordan Scott found he was getting a taste for it and had more than a bit of a natural talent on the bike. Jordan’s comfort on two wheels was not surprising given he has stood on the podium at the under 23 motorbike Enduro world championships just a couple of years ago. Nevertheless, the huge challenge has been set to see if with only a few months of training this summer, coming from being a relative novice on a DH bike, Jordan could be ready to sit on the start line of a world cup.

This edit is intended as the first part of a short story following Jordan Scott as he travels with Ben through europe this month riding bikes at various resorts on the way in an attempt to get up to speed and stand a chance of qualifying to compete in Norway, (the 2012 DHI word cup final at the end of this year). Unfortunately this trip does not go entirely to plan but hey it looks like they have a lot of fun on the way.

    WTF was that.?

  2. Mark

    Bit confused as to how he just managed to enter a world cup. Thought you needed a certain amount of points before they let you in?

    Would had thought alot of people would not be to happy with that

  5. Joebo

    Can vouch for him and his speed… Pinner after only a few times on a dh bike.

    We need as many new people coming in to the sport, yes it will annoy a few people but this is the sort of thing that could get picked up by wider media.

    Also, that lake is the coldest thing in the world – props for being in there that long!

    Good on the lad.

  8. tumble

    He may well have speed but he obviously doesn’t know his limits on a DH bike yet.

    Doesnt every country get to nominate 3-5 riders who get to compete in the qualis regardless of UCI points? It’s a rule to allow younger riders and those coming back from big injuries to compete without having to potentially travel abroad to get UCI points first. Don’t think there is anything overly dodgy going on here.
