We are incredibly proud to share Craigslea SHS 2011 Graduate and now professional cyclist, Nick Shultz, recent debut appearance in Le Tour de France last week. Nick was just centimetres short of a Tour de France stage win after 148.1 kilometres of mountainous riding!

Nick was in the lead until the final metre, when Magnus Cort edged ahead in the throw to the line.

In an interview with SBS Sport, Nick said he had never really been in a position to contest a Tour de France stage win.

“It was almost perfect. But you know Magnus Cort, he’s such a great rider and has won stages in so many Grand Tours,” Nick said.

“I’m really happy with second, but I’m also really upset. It’s not every day you get to try and win a stage of the Tour de France. I’ll keep trying and see where we get to.” (excerpt sourced from SBS Sport).
