Nicole Reinhart: June 3, 1976 - Sept. 17, 2000


On September 17, 2000, Nicole Reinhart was killed during a 42-mile circuit race held on a 3.5-mile course in Arlington, Massachusetts. She was thrown from her bicycle and struck a tree. This event was the last of four races comprising the 2000 BMC Software Cycling Grand Prix. She had won the previous three. The organizers offered $250,000 to any rider who won all four. The prize was donated to her family, who established the Nicole Reinhart Foundation in Macungie, Pennsylvania, in her honor.
