Nicole Cooke, Gold Medal Winner, Beijing Olympics 2008

nicola-cooke“When I race all I think about is speed! How to go faster or be at the limit but in sport, just like in every day life I can not go over the limit of what is safe because it may end in disaster, either in a crash or putting others in danger.

Sport is a good outlet for energy and high speed, but it is dangerous on public roads. I support Brake’s campaign to keep Speed in Sport and off the roads.” Team Halfords Bikehut.

Nicole’s book, Cycle For Life, (Kyle Cathie £14.99) is available to buy now.
