For those who saw it, Niki recently had a feature interview on the television show Generation 7. “She’s not only Australia’s number two downhill mountain bike rider, but she’s also a model and a graphic designer. Some might think she’s Wonder Woman, she is in fact Niki Gudex. Wonder Woman is however one of her role models, which the sticker on the front of her bike proves. A former snowboarder Niki has only been competing for three years and won the first race she entered.”
