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
God put us together. He knew I needed a big sister, a best friend, and a little spice in my life! This girl has been by my side for over thirty years, even though we are still both in our twenties! Happy Birthday to my partner in crime! @laceyyama ❤️🎂❤️🎂❤️ #iloveyougirl #snowwhiteandrosered #besties #itsyobirthday
Happy Number 2 to my Boo! Here’s the 411 on how I got my Bizbing... Shortly after Zepp got hurt, he came to me and said, “do you want to get a dog?” I never thought this would be words that came out of my husbands mouth... and so I replied with... “Okay, if you say these words, they are words that you cannot take back. So make sure you know what you’re saying to me!” He asked if he could pick the breed and the name. I agreed, but had plans of picking the name myself still!!! (Zepp chose the name!) 🙃 So, he said a Jack Russell is the dog I want, but a shortie jack since we live in an RV. I researched far and wide and found a great lady in Delta, Co and I was shocked I found someone so close who was so amazing. I showed Zepp the dogs we could choose from. I couldn’t decide. All I could think of was, what if I picked the wrong dog and one suffered with the other owner. I experienced my first anxiety attacks! I told Zepp he had to choose. We went back and forth for a bit, and then one night I was at work, stressed to the max, Zepp called me and said we needed to wait and he wasn’t sure. I started freaking out. I said you can’t take this back. I love these dogs! Pick one!!!! He text me about an hour later with a picture of Biz and said this is your dog. We get him in March. Time stood still after that until the day we picked him up. Now he’s 2! The love this guy has given us is beyond anything I can put into words. We love you Mista Bizbing! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!🎈🎂🎁
🎶Hey look Ma’ I made it! 🎶 Happy to have made it down to STG again to love on the rocks and dirt. One rock loved me a little too much today and left a mark!

Team Tittensor did a super rally for Mista Zepp today. He’s been dreaming of a 5 string bass for about 5 years now and thanks to those who love us, he went and picked it up today. We are sad to say another surgery is scheduled for February, even though we thought this nightmare was over. For all who love us, thank you. We are going to enjoy a few southern Utah trips on the bike, and then will be going in ready to fight. #myboo #imyourrideordie #lovememyhubby #💞💞💞
