Hi, my name is Nicola Kraus, I’m 12 and I’m very excited to be a part of the Ride Like a Girl program this year! I live in Kamloops BC and there’s a lot of great places here where I like to ride my bike. My favourite places to go are Sun Peaks for downhill, the Bike Ranch for some park riding and Pineview for all around riding. I’ve been racing for a couple of years now, and I like enduro and XC racing the most. Last year I participated in a lot of races and did quite well. This year some things I would like to work on are being more confident on my bike, and to learn better positioning. By the end of the year my goal is to go into races with full confidence, push myself to try new things, and make some new friends doing it. When I’m not biking I like to climb, horseback ride and go fishing with my dad. In the winter I ski race up at Sun Peaks.
