  • Less interesting than he seems on paper
Nicole reminds me -fairly or unfairly - of Kathy Watt the Australian former cyclist.  Kathy spent many years as the strongest female in the country but at the same time it appeared that she was in it for her and everyone else came second. Famous moments included chasing a break that had a favoured team-mate (who was the only sprinter in the break) in it and in the process towing the race favourite almost all the way up to the winning break.  She also did one race (Commonwealth games I think it was) with an earpiece connected to her own coach while the whole rest of the team were on a different frequency connected to the Australian coach...

Its a shame that Nicole seems to have had bad management in her career.  She should be an outright star with all the fan support etc but it appears that she tends to shoot herself in the foot publicly at key moments...
