Nick Kergozou knows what it is to hit and miss when it comes to selection for major championships. The 20 year old rode the men’s team pursuit at the 2016 world track championships, but missed selection for the Rio Olympic Games. Now he’s back and ready to tackle Hong Kong next week with the boys again.
Nick has bounced back well from the disappointment of not making a medal match in London last year. He knows that there were things he could’ve done better, and though just 20 years of age he certainly strikes us as one with a solid and mature head on his shoulders. Cycling New Zealand certainly see champion talent in him, as he joins Campbell Stewart, Regan Gough, Dylan Kennett, Pieter Bulling and Aaron Gate in the endurance set up for the UCI World Track Cycling Championships in Hong Kong.
There also appears to be a strong sense of excitement in the team pursuit outfit. When we were at the track earlier this week they looked strong, very strong, and will be a formidable team to try and take on when racing kicks off next week. “[I’m at] the top of my game, and the team’s at the top of their game,” Nick told us.
