Nicole Duke Raleigh-Clement Part Ways

From VeloNews

BOULDER, Colorado (VN) — After a series of health issues and an acrimonious split with her Raleigh-Clement team, American cyclocross racer Nicole Duke has put her 2012-13 season on hiatus.

A former World Cup downhill and dual-slalom mountain bike racer, Duke had her best cyclocross season to date last year racing for Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com, finishing second overall in the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross series and third at the U.S. national championships.

However, during the first half of the 2012-13 cyclocross season the 38-year-old Boulder resident has struggled with setbacks off the bike, including a change in teams — her contract with Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com was not renewed — as well as a divorce, low iron levels, a tooth infection, and finally, an unexpected split with her new Raleigh-Clement team.
