Welcome to my website!
Nicole has been one of cyclings biggest stars over the last 15 years and since Nicole first hit the headlines as a Junior winning multiple world titles she has gone on to achieve her childhood dream becoming Olympic Champion in 2008. Nicole's palmares also includes the World Road Race Title, Tour de France and Giro D'Italia Tour victories, the World Cup and World No.1 Ranking.
In an emotional press conference Nicole announced her retirement after a wonderful career.
"Today I announce my retirement, and in one sense that is a simple thing to say and a simple story, but given that the sport I have given my life to has become more fantastic than any soap opera and it has just given witness to the greatest ever sporting fraud, about which we get new and wider revelations each day, I thought it appropriate to share with you some of my experiences and, importantly some ideas for the future. And, understanding that for the duration of my career the sport has been through the darkest years, I want to both reflect and look ahead. I hope that in some small way, my experiences can help.
"At 12 I dreamed like every child. I hoped that some of my dreams could come true. You cannot imagine how happy I am to be here with you now, with my dreams fulfilled. I am very happy."
