Scot’s rebel and energetic personality led him to organize races on a dirt lot, friends called more friends and it soon evolved into what we know as BMX — bicycle motocross, he took it to the next step and helped turn BMX bike racing from a backyard backwater into an international action sport.
Scot started in the 70’s but in 2008 BMX debuted in China in the Olympics.Scot not only won several championship but was also an early voice for the sport, introducing it to the nation as a color commentator in the early 1980s, when it was televised on ESPN at a time when the network itself was new and specialized in novelties.
