When you ask someone from the MTB world who Nico Vink is, they will all tell you, he always brings out the big hits.  If he can get enough speed, he will jump all your big MX jumps on a mountain bike.  The calm 7x Belgian downhill champ is always fun to hang around and brings his enthusiasm to the table.  Wait...Belgian downhill?  Yes and although Belgium is covered with as many big hills as Jamaica is with snow, Vink took the Belgian flag to first place in the Nissan European Cup.  Since he was 15, Nico has won several amateur MX races.  When he is not training or racing with his MTB team Rose Vaujany, he is riding his dirt bike.  From 2012, Nico has become a member of FMX4Ever and is starting to groove the ramps with the rest of the gang.
