January 12, 2006 ( Sun Valley, ID) – Scott USA announced today that it will add mountain bike racer Niki Gudex to its’ family of riders. “I am very excited to be involved with Scott,” remarked Niki. “The Scale is an absolutely beautiful bike and I am really keen to race it knowing how great it is. I can’t imagine having a better bike to compete at the World Cup level with.” Gudex joins a strong group of female athletes assembled by Scott to help shape its’ Contessa line of bicycles, apparel and accessories. “It’s so important for us to align ourselves with top level athletes like Niki that can give their input on the Contessa line. The more feedback we get from these riders, the more function specific the category becomes,” said Scott Montgomery.
“Cycling is a sport that can be enjoyed in any form and at any level and Scott caters to everyone from children to World Cup athletes. I think this is what I admire most about Scott, they are making cycling an attractive recreation for everyone and that’s a positive thing for the future of cycling. I must admit, I am very proud to become a part of that,” added Niki.
“I’ve watched Niki progress so much over the last few years of XC racing,” commented Adrian Montgomery. “I believe her determination and hard work in developing herself as a World Cup racer deserves recognition. It’s these types of extraordinary people that Scott USA wishes to work with.”
