For his final TT campaign at the nationals in the under-23 category, Callum Scotson has repeated his winning efforts from 2016 and 2017.
With thanks to Jean-Pierre Ronco and our sponsors for the nationals galleries, Cervélo, we present a collection of images from yesterday’s race.
Last year he was on a BMC TeamMachine as part of that brand’s development team, this year Callum Scotson is racing a Scott bike with the Mitchelton-BikeExchange team. He covered 29.5km in 39:22. It was fast, seven seconds better than his team-mate, last year’s under-23 road race winner Sam Jenner, and good enough for a third successive title for the South Australian.
Conditions are warming up in Buninyong and Cycling Australia has already announced that the under-23 road race on Saturday will be cut back to 92.8km because of the hot weather that is forecast for the weekend. (The Gran Fondo that was meant to be part of the national championship weekend has also been cancelled because of the heat.)
Scotson lost radio contact but knew what was required of him on Thursday: ride fast. He did that (again) and got a green and gold jersey (again). New team, same result.
Below is a collection of photos from the championships by Jean-Pierre Ronco, presented by Cervélo.
