Scott Sports is continuing to boost its women's mountain biking program with the signing of Lesley Patterson, the two-time Xterra world champion. Starting with an event in the Philippines on March 2, Patterson competes on Scott bikes with Syncros components. The deal comes two months after Scott announced its sponsorship of the Crankbrothers Race Club, which features Chloe Woodruff and Judy Freedman racing on Scott Contessa RC bikes.
