If you’ve been to an NCIM race night over the past few year’s you’ve probably seen Andrew Scott racing, a big tall ex-BMX racer with a huge turn of speed. Andrew was in the YHP program when the NCIM started in 2017 and has slowly worked his way up the ranks- attending Junior Worlds and is now a member of Cycling Canada’s NextGen Programs. We liked him so much we put him in a blue shirt and he’s now coaching both youth and adults on Friday nights!
