Boulder Sports Management was founded by Nick Traggis as an avenue to leverage both his sporting and business experience. We offer a unique perspective to our clients because we have first-hand experience with the needs of both the corporate and sporting organization. We have managed marketing departments, eight-figure budgets, and understand how to maximize our cash and asset management to offer maximum return on investment for our team sponsors.
We are fanatical about the sport of cycling and strive to help develop the next generation of champions, both on and off the bike.
A category 1 cyclist, USAC licensed coach, and the Owner/Director of the GS CIAO Cycling Team, Nick has been racing at the elite level on the road and track for over 20 years. He is most often found training in the foothills of Boulder, CO or teaching people how to ride the banking at the local velodrome. Nick enjoys working with professional riders/teams as well as riders looking to balance school, career, and family commitments with their cycling goals- as he has had to do the same for his entire career!
In year’s past, he led the Horizon Organic/Einstein Bros cycling team to a National Championship and to be the best ranked amateur team in the U.S.
He has also directed for professional teams SmartStop Pro Cycling and Champion Systems at events such at the Tour of Utah, U.S. Pro Challenge, and UCI World Championships.
Nick has also enjoyed a successful career as an entrepreneur and technologist. He was one of the first employees at Precision Photonics Corporation, a high-tech manufacturing company – ultimately becoming the General Manager. This ultimately led to the successful sale of the company to IDEX Corporation, where he led a successful site integration and oversaw technology development as the Chief Technology Officer of Advanced Thin Films. He currently works on similar projects as a consultant with Boulder Technology Advisors.
When he isn’t at his “day job”, working with his athletes, or riding his bike, Nick can be found hiking, fishing, or snow-shoeing the local mountains with his wife, Faith.
