Nationals gallery: under-23 road race – Nick White wins

Last year Nick White was the Australian champion on Zwift. In 2019, he gets a green and gold jersey to wear for the rest of the season as winner of the under-23 road race.

Here is a collection of images from one of the toughest races in Australia for young riders.

“Becoming a pro cyclist would be a pretty cool experience. I’ve had a few results in the National Road Series (NRS) last year which has been good. I’m hoping that can help me with that goal and I’ve got a pretty good opportunity lined up for next year which I’m looking forward to.”

Nick White if fine example of the new generation of aspiring cyclists. He is humble, gracious, educated, motivated… and, quite clearly, most capable.

We spoke at length last year about his hopes and aspirations, as well as his history as a rider who has accomplished a lot while racing in Australia and completing his university studies. Back then he was a national champion… in a virtual environment, winner of the Australian title on Zwift.

In 2017, he made the final three in the Zwift Academy challenge and very nearly scored himself a ride in the development team for Dimension Data.

His is a story that continues to be written and you can be sure that you’re going to see his name in the results for years to come.

For 2019, he is part of the rebranded BridgeLane team, a great looking outfit managed by Andrew Christie-Johnson and Tom Petty. In other words, he is getting a “pretty cool experience”. He is a pro cyclist, but there’s more to Nick White than his Zwift achievements and his second place in the 2018 NRS. For starters, he is now the under-23 national champion – a fine way to start a season with a new team.


Below is a collection of images taken by Jean-Pierre Ronco at the road race at the nationals on Saturday.
