VeloVeritas has pleasure in bringing you an exclusive interview with new World Scratch Champion, Britain’s 24 year-old Sky professional, Ben Swift.
Swift’s first big road result was in 2007 when he took a stage in the Giro delle Regione in Italy.
At the end of that season he rode stagiaire for Barloworld but no contract was signed and for 2008 Swift was back in Italia.
That year saw him take more wins in the tough Italian amateur scene with victory in the Giro della Pace, Coppa Romita and a stage in the prestigious Valle d’Aosta.
With results like that, a pro contract looked very possible.
