This young man from Holland became a BMX legend within a span of a few months in 2015. Niek started off by winnning his first World Cup on his home track in front on an ecstatic crowd in Papendal. Not only did he win, he did it from the outside gate (considered to be a disadvantage since it is longer distance to the first turn). A month later, he went on to win the 2015 UCI BMX World Championships. Again, from the outside gate! His win in Papendal was voted the best moment of 2015. Nic might not look like your average Olympic athlete, but rest assure, he had put in the work lately and looks faster, leaner and meaner than ever in 2016!
