All time head-to-heads won and lost

"I always liked motorcycles and rode pillion on my Dad's bike when I was 10 years old. When I was 13 my Dad was working on a film shoot at a MX race, he persuaded me to join him. I was amazed what guys were doing on 2 wheels and nagged my Dad until I got a bike for my own. I've been hooked ever since."

Nick started competing in MX when he was 17 years old, racing regionally and nationally. He won regional colours in 2000. In early 2002 he moved across to FMX where he found his niche. "I'd always enjoyed doing the jumps in MX, so when a friend was doing FMX I tried it out and liked it and became a good freestyler." 2002 was the first FMX SA Championship and Nick won. In 2003 he started riding professionally and since then 'Sick Nick' has dominated the FMX scene in SA, winning nearly every contest (when he was fit and not recovering from an injury). In 2004 Nick started competing overseas. He participated in all the 2005 / 2006 Night of the Jumps series in Europe helped to organise the first Masters of Dirt sessions in South Africa.

As part of the FMX4EVER team, Nick nowadays travels around the globe to inspire for example the Brazilian, Turkish and Egypt public with world-class freestyle motocross. 28 year old Nick has been so busy with demos lately that he has not been able to ride as many contests in the past, but you can be sure that he will push the limit in any upcoming competition he will be part of with his unique style from South Africa.
