Cameron Scott is one of Bahrain Victorious’s deals for 2023. The fact that the 24-year-old Australian was able to sign a two-year contract with Team WorldTour is due in part to his performances in a Dutch race. After finishing second in Ronde van Overijssel (1.2) “the talks have really started,” he says cycling news.

His second place in Ronde van Overijssel wasn’t the first Scott showed. The former cyclist, who decided to put it all on the road in 2020, had already won a stage on the Qinghai Lake Tour in 2018. Scott was also an Australian Champion in the benchmark and won a stage on the New Zealand Tour.

Europe
“However, it looked like no matter what I did in Australia, it was never enough. But when I came to Europe, one result was enough. I didn’t have to win,” Scott points to his second place in Ronde van Overijssel. At Riesen, he was beaten by Coen Vermeltfoort in a thin peloton race. Joren Bloem took the podium in third place.

“After that first result in Europe, things went really fast. Bahrain Victorious was very interested right away. I was taken to do some tests and they were happy with the results. I was able to draw within two weeks.”

For Scott, who has raced with ARA Pro Racing Sunshine Coast for the past two seasons, joining a pro team has been a huge relief. It was something he said he had struggled with for several years. “But I guess I still have a lot to learn. I think I’ll be on the sprint train at first. Then I look at it game by game, and it remains to be seen my progress. I really don’t know exactly what kind of rider I am yet, so this will be too learning process”.
