Originally from Vancouver Island, Nicholas discovered his knack for cycling by exploring untouched gravel and dirt roads wherever he could find them. Specializing in Cyclocross, Nicholas races (and podiums) with the Elite racers of BC, while always making time for adventure riding. After moving to Vancouver, he's now set out to discover even more roads and trails, repping his new team kit and bike, with Naked Factory Racing. Nicholas is usually too busy bunny hopping roots and crushing his opponents to snack, but when he does remember nutrition, he reaches for healthy nutrition that will get him to the top of that mountain or the end of that endurance ride.
Lauren discovered her love for cycling 5 years ago after buying her first single speed and setting out to tackle the hills of North Van. After discovering the Whistler Fondo (and getting a bike with some gears), she was hooked. Fondos snowballed to group rides and eventually amateur racing with a local team (Mighty Pirates). Now you can find her at any of our local stage races or weekly crits throughout the city. Being an endurance athlete living with Celiac Disease, proper nutrition is critical. You can usually find clean, nutritious foods such as Go Macro Bars, Bananas and Gluten Free Honey Stinger Waffles in her jersey pocket (and an Ultima in the bottle cage when it's been a hard day in the saddle).
Lauren Babineau lives and breathes an active and fast-paced lifestyle. She is a tenacious triathlete, elite para-athlete guide, and supercharged account executive in sales and marketing. Once you meet her you’ll see her infectious energy and enthusiasm translates from her athletic pursuits into her everyday life. She’ll admit she didn’t grow up as a swimmer…or a cyclist...or a runner…she was a soccer player! That grew up with big dreams and an unwavering work ethic. Her victories have spanned from local to international podiums. This year she will be racing in the women’s professional field in the Ironman circuit, as well as guiding Jessica Tuomela (a visually impaired athlete) with the ultimate goal of helping her onto the podium at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
Babineau considers 'nutrition' as the fifth discipline of triathlon. "I take my nutrition seriously, as I believe it has a direct relation to my performance. Especially as an 'on the go athlete' I like that I can always count on the expertise at Sea2Sky Nutrition.
