Nichole Cheza #15
I interviewed Nichole Cheza for my day job the other day. She is pretty incredible. She's 21, weighs about the same as a sausage roll, is just over 5ft tall, yet, we understand, she's the only woman to hold a National number (on an XR750) for a generation at least. And to explain, you only get a national number (so a number without a letter behind it) in the US if you qualify for a main event, a final. There are between 50 and 100 of the world's very best riders trying to be one of the 18 in the main. It takes some effort. Keep an eye out for her when the season starts this year.
