The day after teammate Serghei Tvetcov won the Chrono Kristin Armstrong, Nickolas Zukowsky finished 2nd at the Boise Twilight Crit and ensured the team’s trip to Idaho was a success.
Zuke continued his consistent run of wins and podiums this year against a loaded field including winner Justin Williams (Legion of LA) and top sprinters from Rally, Arapahoe and Aevolo who were all vying for the win at one of the premier stops on the USA Crits series calendar. What’s most impressive about Zuke’s success this year is that it has transpired across multiple terrains, in the bloating heat of Boise, in the rain of Saguenay, at altitude at Gila and in both single-day events and stage races. This versatility has made him one of the best U23 prospects racing in North America. He will be hoping to join Team Canada in Europe later this summer, though final rosters have not been announced yet.
