"Gobsmackingly Brilliant" rides of 2000
The other was 17 year old Nicole Cooke attacking again and again and again until she broke all of the other (older) riders in the women's junior World's. And the IOC said she was to young for the Olympics - hah!
Nicole Cooke has to be there. Her great season was rounded off with a stunning victory at Plouay. Stunning because she dictated the race tactics and dominated the whole field. When she made her moves, you just knew they would pay off. And they always did. If Nicole can listen to advice and play the team game, she can be one of the key players for the next decade. Here's hoping.
