Occupation Mountain Biker / Graphic Designer / Model / Artist

Niki has fast become one of Australia’s most highly regarded female competitors in mountain biking and is one of a few athletes who are competitive in both Downhill (DH) and Cross Country (XC) disciplines.

After only a few years in the sport, Niki is ranked number one and two in the National Series for XC and DH respectively. She has finished on the Downhill podium at every National Championship for the past three years and has achieved either a first or second ranking in every National Series.

Following Niki’s success in Downhill she has now set her sights on the Olympic discipline of Cross Country mountain biking and she is currently in preparation for a big year ahead, including training and competition at the world’s highest level.

Niki’s sporting prowess and stunning looks have attracted cover shots, feature stories and interviews across all mediums, such as front covers on Chick, Black+White and FHM magazine, and feature stories in magazines as diverse as Inside Sport, Rolling Stone, Maxim, Outside and even fashion bible Vogue magazine. Niki’s profile increased even further when she was voted as “Australia’s Sexiest Sportswoman” by the readers of Inside Sport in 2002.

In 2002 Niki was also crowned Wollongong University’s “Sportsperson Of The Year” and she received a University “Blue” Award (which is an international university acknowledgement for sporting achievement) and graduated on completion of a Bachelor of Creative Arts degree majoring in Graphic Design and New Media.

With her university studies behind her, Niki is now focused on achieving all that she can within mountain biking. This year Niki will compete locally and internationally including the NORBA, World Cup Series and World Championships.
