Coming from Scotland, Oscar has had success in the junior categories in the British domestic scene with a string of strong top ten results, alongside some good performances while racing overseas in France, before joining the team’s Development program in 2021.

Oscar got into the sport of cycling because his local cycling club in Kelso began their club time trials on the road just outside of his house, which piqued his interest. Once he was old enough, he took part himself before getting involved in more racing throughout Scotland and eventually Europe, falling in love with the sport as he went.

“I like the freedom of it and the travel. Whether that’s going for a ride in the hills or travelling throughout Europe. I also enjoy the buzz you get from doing well during races and even the simple thrill of going fast.”

The young Scot has his head screwed on and is aware of the challenges that lay ahead of them, aiming to take them on in a mature manner, and wanting to get the most out of joining the team.

“The development set up will be really good at not only developing me as a rider but also as a person. I’ll be living away from home for the first time and it will be a new culture, but I’m really looking forward to it.”

With a sparse amount of racing in 2020, and catching the bug fully in 2021, Oscar is looking forward to getting stuck in this season, hoping to take part in some hilly races that suit him but also learning the ropes in the Netherlands and Belgium where he expects to get “battered” in the crosswinds, which he says will be “fun”.

When he’s not on the bike, you can find Oscar playing golf or watching several other spots on TV, with Formula 1 one of his favourites. Wanting to expand his horizons, he’s planning on starting a Business and Enterprise in Elite Sport course alongside his cycling, while at home furthering his cooking abilities and mastering his favourite dish – Scottish paella – which according to Oscar lives up to the Scottish stereotype by using cheap ingredients.
