From a young age, Nick displayed interest in endurance athletics, competing in track in grade school, and going to swim meets on the weekend. At around age 12, Nick fell in love with cycling after seeing a single stage of the Vuelta a Espana on TV. Shortly after graduating high school, Nick was badly injured during a training ride after being struck by a car. Largely bedridden for a few weeks, Nick discovered track cycling on the internet.
Thus began his current passion of track cycling. Nick competed at the Northeast Velodrome, and when the program at the time ended, he continued his interest in track cycling by traveling to the next nearest track in Queens, New York almost every week. Locals in both Massachusetts and New York were impressed with Nick’s passion and determination. As a result, Nick began working with Shayne, first at P2, then employing him as a coach, wherein Shayne propelled Nick from an average category 4 track cyclist to a competitive category 3.
Nick has now settled in the suburbs of Philly, not far from the internationally known Valley Preferred Cycling Center velodrome, otherwise known as T-Town. Currently a category 2 track cyclist, Nick hopes to continue honing his own fitness and skills while helping cyclists and endurance athletes attain their own goals.
Nick is a USAC certified level 3 coach and is USA Olympic Committee Safe Sport Certified.
