It is a chronic illness that stays with you for life, it comes in flares and remissions which can have a severe impact on your life and ability to do things. Nico has suffered from many symptoms including; severe weight loss, anemia, nutritional deficencies and joint pain. In 2019 Nico founded Real Guts Racing, a cycling team centered around the concept of raising awareness and proving what is possible while competitng with IBD.
