BiographyAlready at the age of five Nick had fun racing, beating all the other kids in a bike race, and riding with his dad on the mountain bike trails. All with a huge smile on his face. At age ten he rode long distance out in Sedona and when asked why he was smiling so much all he could say was that he rode 20 miles out in such a cool place. This was just the beginning of training with his dad out in the forests. One day when out with his dad he met Nathan Guerra at the Wisconsin Off Road Series Treadfest race where he was given the opportunity to race with Vision Cycling. Nick’s eyes lit up at the opportunity. Nick didn’t waste any time training hard in his first season. He had fun focusing on doing his best in WORS where he went from racing Cat 3 to Cat 2 Sport before making the jump up to junior/elite where he took 2nd behind some of the fastest and strongest riders. 2017 is a new season that Nick is looking forward to with great ambition, racing, great coaching, camaraderie, and friendship he has found while riding with Vision.
