A long and successful career puts Nicola Spirig up there with the very best. She has excelled at both athletics and multisport giving her the foundation of excellence and adaptability that SLT demands. Her longevity in the sport might give some the impression that she may struggle against some of the youth on show in the SLT field but don’t be fooled. Nicola can keep the engine revving and come to the party. Can she repeat previous success across an entire season of racing? Only a fool would bet against it.
