Nicole Frybortova Becomes One With The Bicycle

Sep 1, 2015 By Hannah Austin
They say that once you learn to ride a bike, you never forget, but how one achieves what you are about to see … we’re at a loss. While Nicole Frýbortová is one of the great athletes of our time, few have heard of the professional artistic cyclist. Her sport is niche and rarely covered by media, but her skills are undeniable. It’s no wonder that she’s a favorite to win the next UCI Indoor Cycling World Championship.

Artistic cycling blends gymnastics, biking and ballet, and although it may sound like something females would enjoy, they were unable to participate on a professional level until 1970. While women are still far less likely to travel by bike in everyday life than men, they dominate the sport. There are doubles and teams that perform together, but Nicole prefers to ride alone. It’s clear that she has really become one with her bike – take a look.
