A young gun on the bike, Gosford native Nick Yallouris has quickly risen up the ranks of Australian cycling and is looking forward to making his Paralympic debut as the sighted pilot for World Champion Matt Formston.

A bicycle mechanic by trade, Nick has had a passion for bikes and cycling from a young age. Having come from a BMX background, Nick was introduced to cycling in 2010 and was quick to get accustomed to track cycling. Although he admits he didn’t enjoy it when he first started, his natural drive to succeed made him persevere and it wasn’t before long that he began competing.

Admitting that 2014-2015 has been his best year on the bike yet, Nick was invited to join the Australian Para-cycling team in 2015 after the National Championships, where he claimed silver in the New South Wales’ men’s team pursuit. The same year, he made his debut for Australia at the Para-cycling Track World Championships in the Netherlands where he paired up with Commonwealth Games medallist Paul Kennedy.

Admitting it was a steep learning curve, Nick got a taste for international tandem cycling and has since set his sights on achieving gold for his country at the Paralympics.

Living in Chittaway Point on the NSW Central Coast, Nick is based close to Matt. Together, they train up to 13 times per week, and he is looking forward to hopefully bringing home a Paralympic gold at his first Games in Rio.

Outside of cycling, Nick enjoys travelling, listening to music, working on cars, bikes and boats and lists Byron Bay as his favourite holiday destination.
