It's not just a sport. It's a lifestyle. No one gets this simple truth more than Laurette Nicoll, who has spent over ten years as a host, sideline reporter and announcer. After years of calling the action in the booth, interviewing riders on the podium, profiling athletes in segments and even being the subject of a human interest piece, herself, Laurette has expanded her myriad experience into her most recent role: producer.
A natural leader with boundless ambition, Laurette felt inspired to capture a behind-the-scenes experience while traveling with the Nitro Circus LIVE tour in Australia. The project soon evolved into a 12-part series, "On The Road with Nitro Circus.” As the creator and director, Laurette showcased the fearless athletes from the MTV show and the worldwide "Nitro Circus LIVE” tour. Set against the picturesque landscapes of Australia's alluring cities, Laurette drew audiences into the Nitro Circus lifestyle, revealing the personalities and often-compelling stories behind each athlete. The series was picked up by Network A where it has racked up over two million views to date, and continues to grow.
Laurette has since returned to her adopted hometown of San Diego where she is working as a contributor and producer for FOX Sports San Diego. She recently produced a popular, in-depth, two-part segment on Baseball Hall of Famer and fan favorite, Tony Gwynn for "Padres Weekly." She is also currently a part of the "Padres POV” program that focuses on San Diego and its beloved Major League Baseball team, the Padres.
"Working with the Padres and getting into a more creative role has been an incredible experience," Laurette said. "Illustrating the passionate and thought-provoking side of sports is what I love to do."
Producing and creating hasn't taken Laurette away from her roots, however. She continues to be an admired fixture on the podium of the AMA EnduroCross series, and can also be found reporting and calling the action at the ESPN X Games, and pit reporting for Terracross on CBS Sports and the GEICO SuperBike Shootout Series.
