Nicole grew up on a farm in Axtell, UT, loving all sports, the outdoors, and trying to beat the boys. Mountain biking fell upon her when she married her husband, Zeppelin, in 2010. She competed in her first race in the cross country category in 2011 as a beginner woman to find out what it was her husband loved so much about this sport. She crossed the finish line with jello legs, a dust covered face, and also a new passion in life! Her passion grew greater and greater after each race, until she eventually found herself crossing the finish line at Marathon National Championships in 2014 as the Women’s 19-29 National Champion. This earned her a pro card for the following year and she has raced in the Elite Women’s category since 2015. As it was Nicole’s husband who bought her her first mountain bike, and prepared her for her first ride, first race, and first nationals, he shifted into becoming her coach, mechanic and riding partner. They travel to races as what is know as privateer’s (not with a factory team) this fortuitously led them to becoming known as Team Tittensor. Family is a mainstay in Nicole’s life, and with that close friends and family have evolved into a major aspect of her success as well. For Nicole, this is all a part of the meaning behind Team Tittensor.
“Cross country mountain bike racing is one of the hardest things you will ever do, but when you finish, you are filled with…life.” This is the first pieces of advice my husband, Zeppelin, gave me when I started racing. Since then, I have been handed more than I deserve from him. Before I decided to try a race out, I was the support for Zeppelin at mountain bike races. We created so many amazing memories and traveled all over the states as he would compete in big endurance events. That all changed after I...read more
We planned 3 days in the desert before the Christmas craziness comes with work. All the forces tried to keep us from getting down here in time to ride today, but Team T is use to challenges, and we persevered. We rocked the socks off this betch of a day and crushed a road/KLC shred during sunset hours! It was absolutely beautfiul. #bringitlife #boom #desertlove #teamtittensor #workharddreambig #esigrips #madreach #jansexperts #scott2luvit #carborocket #hyperthreads #9point8ca #plunkettkuhrdesigns #letsgoaero #frontiercoffeecompany
Our first annual Friendsgiving took place last night! Thanks to my mom for providing us with her house and food! It’s a place full of memories for all of us, and was so much fun. The stories were 🤪👌🏻🤭 Thanks for coming. Looking forward to next year! 💖💖💖 #friendsforever #Friendsgiving #countrygirls #besties #myladies
Update on our girl. Brinnley was life lighted yesterday to Utah Valley. It was a scary day and night, but she woke up this morning and is stable and alert. Everyone’s love and prayers were profound beyond words. It was amazing to see how loved she is. I can’t say how grateful I am to be able to see her smiling face again! Love you girl. 💞💞💞
The view of all views! It’s hard to get to this viewpoint, but it’s totally worth it. Porcupine Rim was my first ride in Moab in 2011. Today was my first time on The Porc with a full suspension! 🤪 it was still brutal! Wish I could stay a little longer, until next time Moab, we LOVE ya. 🌵💖⛰ #Moab #TeamTittensor #esigrips #madreach #jansexperts #scott2luvit #carborocket #hyperthreads #9point8ca #plunkettkuhrdesigns #letsgoaero #frontiercoffeecompany #workharddreambig
Today, unexpectedly ended up being one of the most special moments ever for me. Zepp had a few days off work, and weather looked bomb 💣, so we decided to head to our fave place, Moab! Unknowingly, my mom and dad decided to take their first trip in their new motor home, in celebration of retirement! We met up at our favorite trailhead, and that was the moment! The moment I knew we would spend so many days RVIng together. I can’t explain how happy it made me. I’m so excited and I’m so happy and grateful I get to do this with those I love most. Life is short... ride a bike, get a dog, and spend as much time with your family as possible. 💞💞💞 #TeamTittensor #lovelife #family #myadvice #iamsogeateful #moab #❤️
