Nikki Brammeier (born 30 December 1986), née Harris[1] is an English racing cyclist from Draycott, Derbyshire who rides for Boels–Dolmans. She began cycling at five and has won many championships across various disciplines. She was described by Transport for London in 2006 as one of Britain's most promising young riders.[4] Harris has competed in international events including the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics and the Commonwealth Games. In November 2015 she announced that had signed a one year contract with Boels–Dolmans for the 2016 season, combining riding cyclo-cross with racing on the road, with the aim of being selected for the Great Britain team in the road race at the 2016 Olympics as a domestique for Boels-Dolmans team-mate Lizzie Armitstead.[5] In December 2015 Harris took her maiden win in the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup when she won Cyclo-cross Namur.[6] She is married to fellow cyclist Matt Brammeier.[7]
