Nicky opened the 2008 season with a 5th place finish at the Amgen Tour of California Women's Criterium. A savvy all-arounder with a doctorate in education, she went on to win the criterium at the Joe Martin Stage Race and took second in the Wells Fargo Twilight criterium. Nicky's lifelong passion for tennis led to a collegiate scholarship and three years on the pro tennis circuit. A summer camping trip in 2001 sparked her interest in mountain biking, which led to a Collegiate National Championship the following year. And since switching to road racing, the results have been equally impressive 2007 Utah State Road Racer of the Year, Green Mountain Stage Race Sprint Jersey Champion, 1st place in the Manhattan Beach 2006 Grand Prix, and the list goes on.
