Nicole Rocking Nats in 2010

Our interview with Boulder local cyclocross super star covers a wide range of topics beginning with the challenges facing a divorced mother of two whom happens to be a professional athlete. She then goes into her development in sport - racing motorcycles and competing against the boys. While a well rounded athlete, Nicole made the decision to pursue mountain bike racing as she felt this is the sport in which she would excel. Duke then discusses retirement and the decision to have a family. However, her competitive spirit was stoked again and Nicole saw success again as a cyclocross racer. As a member of the Venus de Miles Dream Team, she strives to be a role model for women athletes and single moms. The last segment is a discussion about women's vs men's prize payouts.
