Corey Nichol - rider profile

Name – Corey Nichol

Profession – Kid

Uphill or Downhill? Uphill

Most epic day on a bike? 1st race in MTB at the Australasian School Cycling Championships at Mount Major, Shepparton. I was very nervous as it was my first race outside of the Dirt Crits in Castlemaine. I dropped my chain twice, got cranky but completed the race.

I’m currently riding… Good points and bad points. I’m currently riding a Specialised Hard Rock, courtesy of Santa.
Good points: it handles well around corners and isn’t to big for me
Bad Points: it’s brakes squeal a lot

Favourite trails (other than Castlemaine). I haven’t rode many but at this stage it would be Redesdale.

If I wasn’t mountain biking I’d be… riding my road or my track bike.

One day I’ll ride… in the Tour De France.

When I head out for a ride I never leave without… a tube or pump, as this is one of the things I have learnt since joining the Rocky Riders.

My race highlight - my first ever win
