Nico grew up in Belgium in a small town called Sint Gilis Waas where his dad owned a bike shop. His dad raced MX so Nico got into riding at an early age. He has been riding bikes for 27 years and still loves it as much as on day one. In his early years he rode loads of BMX, skateparks and trails and at the of 16 got in to Dh racing. After being on the World Cup circuit for 15 years he needed a change and started riding more MX. Hitting the big Motto jumps made him want to go bigger on his DH bike and that's where he's at now. As a member of the Fest series crew, Nico is renowned for not only building, but also sending some of the biggest jumps the MTB world has seen to date.
