Nik wins NCNCA BAR and upgrades to Cat 2

Nik Barreto, is the rider of the month for September 2016.

Nik joined the AVRT squad a few short years ago as a CAT 4 rider and has steadily improved and moved up the ranks. This season has been a dramatic continuation of this pattern. Nik has had good results all season, including top tens at big races like Bariani, Mt. Hamilton, Pesky and Patterson Pass, podiums at Dunnigan Hills and CCCX, and wins at Watsonville and San Ardo. These outstanding results also helped him to run away with the BAR points competition in Cat 3 (through the end of his Cat 3 season), and enabled him to upgrade to Cat 2. In his first P12 race at Henleyville, he finished 2nd , so it appears we can look forward to continued outstanding results from Nik at this level.

In addition to his racing results, Nik has also played an important role in AVRT management and mentoring. He organized the summer AVRT training camp and he authored the race strategies for the entire team, which were an invaluable resource for the past season and will continue to pay dividends in seasons to come. These contributions were essential for the unprecedented success of the 2016 AVRT squad.

Congratulations Nik, you are our September Rider of the Month.
