Scott’s latest Grand Prix success is an amazing achievement, and he goes from one outstanding performance to another. He has been winning constantly since his Olympic gold medal success, and it is fantastic that he has been world number one since November 2013.

We are extremely proud of Scott and his Borders background and I know he is an absolute hero and inspiration to young riders here in the Borders, and in fact around the world.”
