23-year-old Scott Laughland from Bridge of Allan, Scotland, will support the CUBE Action Team as a new member starting the 2014 season.
Scott started riding and competing in Motorcycle Trials from the age of six, but after spectating at the 2002 Downhill World Cup in Fort William he was a hooked on mountain bike racing. He changed his focus and one year later competed locally. At the age of 18 he persuaded his dream, racing a Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup.
However, competitive racing was put on hold while he studied for his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. In 2012, he did four different European Enduro races and loved the diversity and challenge of this way of competing. Last season after having graduated from University, he competed all summer at events like the Enduro World Series or the Reschenpass race with his CUBE Stereo SHPC Race with significant progression and had his best season to date. One of Scott’s career highlights is a 6th place at the Ischgl European Open.
Scott already is well integrated in the Team since all pilots got to know him during last season. The whole Action Team is convinced that his biking skills and his character will add to the Team ́s success in the races for 2014, also in the strongly growing Enduro market Great Britain.
The CUBE Action Team
In autumn 2011 CUBE recognized the huge potential of Enduro as an upcoming way of biking and looked for talented bikers in whole Europe to establish a biking team. The result was the foundation of the CUBE Action Team in winter 2011. At the moment the Germans André Wagenknecht, Ludwig Doehl, Laura Brethauer as well as the French Nicolas Lau and the Swiss Gustav Wildhaber are members of the team and competing in international races. With this international MTB-Enduro team already consisting of six drivers CUBE aspires to a new generation in biking.
