Biography

A promising rider since her junior days (she won four junior world titles, including one in mountain bike), Nicole Cooke’s greatest season came in 2008, when she won both the Olympic road race and the road race at the World Championships. In 2003 and 2006, she was the top women single day racer, winning the UCI Women’s Road World Cup in those years. She placed third at the World Championships in those years, also earning a silver in 2005.
