Biography

Nico’s British career began in 2012 when he joined Birmingham just days after riding in the Italian Grand Prix as a wildcard. His performances at Perry Bar impressed the management enough to have two further seasons at the club. In 2015, Chris Louis brought the Argentinean to Foxhall as a reserve which he made a mockery of in his first season putting over three points on his average. His entertaining style has made him a popular figure in Suffolk and he has been with the club ever since. Nico, who rides on an Italian licence has also scored 35 points in five meetings for Italy in the Speedway World Cup. Nico rides for the Somerset Rebels in the Premiership.
