20 Nicole Dorholt – Getting Dirty on Offroad Races

Nicole Dorholt on Sole Nation with Brook Kreder

Today I’m having my first voice-to-voice conversation with Tulsa-based racer Nicole Dorholt. She’s a team sponsored offroad triathlete who has qualified for nationals and worlds next year.

Nicole has done lots of races, from half marathons to century rides, but has found her passion for offroad racing (yes, she does it dirty).

This gal is super inspiring. She perseveres – she even swam a tri with one arm! – and works hard to improve, and it pays off. I can’t wait for you to hear our conversation.
