Worlds: Bronze doesn't make up for Rio disappointment says Miles Scotson

Miles Scotson says that while he's happy to be taking home at least one medal with him at the end of the week, it wasn't quite enough to make up for the disappointment of not being given the opportunity for a medal at the Olympic Games in Rio. Scotson, who finished third in the Under 23 men's time trial at the UCI Road World Championships in Qatar, was a reserve for the team pursuit squad but never raced in Rio.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
