Olympic gold medalist Scott McGrory will once again ride the McCaig & Daikin Air Conditioning Bendigo International Madison, which takes place between March 10-12 in Bendigo, Australia. McGrory will team with Danish rider Jimmi Madsen in an attempt to win his third madison title. Madsen who has been targeted by the Bendigo madison committee for a number of years, has finally agreed to race. McGrory and Madsen have ridden together on a number occasions in the lucrative six day races in Europe. Together they have won the Ghent Six Day back in 1999.
Madsen is a complete rider, who has the speed and strength needed in madison racing, and this makes him a most feared competitor. Together, he and McGrory will make a formidable team in the 200 lap event. Madsen has competed in three Olympic Games while McGrory has contested two over a 14 year span. Madsen has won seven six day events in Europe while McGrory has 14 victories. Both have represented their countries at World championships over 10 times.
Scott McGrory, who is now based in Bendigo, sees the McCaig Airconditioning Madison as his home event. Missing last year through illness, McGrory is eager to stamp his superiority on the event once again. His class and experience along with a great partner will see this pairing go in as one of the definite favourites.
