Czech cyclist Nikola Nosková has become a new addition to the women’s cycling team Massi-Tactic, based in Torroella de Montgrí. The 26-year-old has been signed to compete for the last month of the current season.
Nosková has an impressive track record, having won numerous titles in her career. Among her notable achievements are the U-23 European champion, the Giro del Trentino, and the Czech Republic National Championship in 2017 and 2018. She comes from the Zaaf Cycling Team and formerly rode for SD Worx in 2021.
Her debut with the Massi-Tactic team is eagerly anticipated. Nosková will make her first appearance in the La Périgord Ladies (1.2) race on Saturday, August 12, located in southwestern France. Just a day later, she is scheduled to race in the La Picto-Charentaise (1.2), another event on French soil.
The excitement surrounding her debut is accompanied by her enthusiasm for joining the team. Nikola Nosková states, “I am happy to be part of this team after all the difficulties I have had this season with my club. I am eager to work with my new teammates and try to achieve the best results.” These words reveal her determination and eagerness to contribute positively to her new team.
Nosková’s love for cycling began at an early age. She started racing with a team at just 15 years old. Her natural talent was evident from the start, as she won a gold and silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games during her first season as a junior rider. She also finished fourth in the World Championship.
The Costa Brava team has a busy schedule following her debut, with three more races planned until September 5 to close the season. The events include Gran Premio de Sopela 1.15 in the Basque Country, Giro de la Toscana-Memorial Michela Fanini 2.2 in Italy, and Le Tour Cycliste Féminin International de Ardèche 2.1 in France. These races offer Nosková a platform to showcase her abilities with her new team.
Her start to 2023 was challenging, beginning with the now-defunct Zaaf Cycling, where she finished third in the Vuelta CV Feminas in February. Despite the challenges, her move to Massi-Tactic has been met with optimism, both from her and the cycling community.
In summary, Nikola Nosková’s joining of Massi-Tactic signifies a promising move for both the team and the cyclist herself. Her strong background, including significant titles and her expressed happiness in joining the team, “I am happy to be part of this team after all the difficulties I have had this season with my club. I am eager to work with my new teammates and try to achieve the best results,” points to a hopeful future for her with Massi-Tactic. The upcoming races provide an exciting opportunity to witness her capabilities with her new team.
