Scott Anthony McGrory OAM (born 22 December 1969) is an Australian former professional racing cyclist. He was an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship holder.[1]

McGrory won a gold medal (with Brett Aitken) in the Madison at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, a silver in the Madison at the 1996 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, and a bronze medal at the 1988 Summer Olympics in the team pursuit.[2]

He represented Australia in the road race events at both the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (8th), and the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.


Scott started cycling in Albury-Wodonga, later moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland. He represented Queensland, South Australia and Victoria where he now resides.

McGrory won his bronze medal in the team pursuit at the 1988 Summer Olympics at the age of 18.

He turned Professional in 1994 for the Jayco Caravans Team, and won the Australian Professional Road Race Championship that year.

In 1996 he signed with the German Die Continentale team, and spent three seasons there. It was during this period that he started riding the European Winter 'Six-Day' circuit and won the silver medal in the Madison at the World Championships. In 1999–2000 he rode for Team Gerolsteiner and cemented himself as one of the top Six Day riders in the world, and also continued competing as a Road Professional.

After winning the gold medal at the Sydney Olympics, Scott joined the number one ranked team in the world Mapei–Quick-Step for 2001–2002. After the Mapei team finished at the end of 2002 Scott concentrated on the Six Days until injury and illness eventually saw him retire early in 2005.

Scott spent 2007 as the Manager of the Drapac Porsche Cycling Team, in 2008 he joined the Victorian Institute of Sport as a coach.

Scott now works in the media as a commentator and reporter at events such as the Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, UCI World Championships and Tour de France. He is the host of the Australian television program Full Cycle which broadcasts on the Nine Network and Fox Sports across Australia.
