Female Mountain Biker Nic is one of NZ’s most exciting MTB prospects. She is the 2009 NZ #2 in both XC and Marathon MTB. As well as winning the NZ XTERRA Championship. The quintessential kiwi farm girl, Nic enjoyed a varied and successful sporting history. As captain of the Raetihi Schoolboys rugby team at primary school, and a senior Otago rugby representative at University, Nic states it was her “failure to grow upward, or outward” that led to an interest in endurance sports. After a gap year where Nic was dealing with some serious injuries she is once again back on track and is as determined and focussed as ever to get back on top of that podium again. Nic's words on Why she chose Avanti? "Light and fast. It fits. And importantly, it feels great to be taking a Kiwi brand to the world as I race internationally." Nic rides an Avanti Competitor Team.
