New Sign-up – Scott Cole!

This fall Team Thule Adventure Team decided to recruit some new team members. We’re excited to introduce and welcome the following new athletes to the team in 2015 …     Scott Cole   Scott is born and raised in Southern California and started with multisport and adventure racing 16 years ago.  Today, Scott has traded the warm sands of California for the wilderness of Northern Sweden, where he trains as one of the country’s best multisporters.       “We first tested Scott at the Taining Outdoor Quest in China (Sept 2014) and we realized then that his fierce competitiveness and experience were exactly the attributes that Team Thule Adventure were seeking,” says Martin, Team Captain.  “Scott and I raced as a two-man team and won the Taining race in a convincing manner against tough competition.  Two months later Scott joined Team Thule again in China — this time on a four-man team — and we finished third at the Wuhan Challenge.  We look forward to Scott’s all-around contributions to the team and believe that with his skills we will continue to reach the top of podium in the coming years.”   Scott’s motivation and expectations are both high for 2015. He just got back from a training camp in Southern California (see his 2 min film here – http://vimeo.com/116420437) and he’s  planned a training camp in the Grand Canary Islands (Spain) in March and again in Malaga (Spain) in April.  “I’m 37 years old, but I still see the best of my multisport career ahead of me,” says Scott, who continues to improve his technical skills, including a particular focus on breaking his “braking” heel strike habit.  “My goal for 2015 is to perform consistent and strong across all races, although Åre Extreme will continue to be my favorite.  I’m really psyched for the first race of the season in Baise, China (24-28 April), which is going to be a five-day stage race, demanding both speed and stamina.”   More about Scott As a multisporter Scott has solo victories in Sweden, Norway, New Zealand.
