Hailing from Taupo New Zealand Scott Sargison, 42 years old is fairly new to road cycling (1.5yrs). 

His background has been in BMX racing for the past 10 years and shredding trails on his mountain Bike. Scott picked up road cycling after watching the riders finish the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge one sunny afternoon in 2019 and love it. 

Favourite ride outside?

Around Lake Taupo, our beautiful Lake is stunning and the mountains paint such an amazing backdrop. I am looking forward to the Gentle Anne ride from Taihape to Napier in November which will provide plenty of climbing challenges and stunning scenery before taking on the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge in November.

Favourite cycling memory

Travelling around New Zealand with family and friends to various BMX meets. Both my sons, my wife and I competed, it was a great opportunity to compete together as a family. Having only picked up road cycling recently and covid scuttling most events last year I am looking forward to the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge in November. 

How did you start filming for FulGaz?

Like most adventures, it started around a BBQ with some mates and a couple of beers. Bevan works for the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge and mentioned they needed someone to film the ride around Lake Taupo. It’s such an epic ride that I jumped at the chance.
