"You'll be forgiven if you have not heard of Gudex prior to seeing her on this list. It's not as if Mountain Biking is the most popular women's sport out there. Nevertheless, this Australian beauty has managed to win a host of different races while also maintaining side jobs as both a model and graphic designer. While we can't speak to the quality of her design work, we can tell you definitively that she takes a mean picture.

Peru Revisited Pinkbike.com, Mar 31, 2011
"One of the best parts of being a photographer is being invited to document fun and interesting things. The idea of traveling to document huge descents and culture, in a place that has thousands of years of history, was an exciting one. In 2005 I was fortunate to go to Peru as a photographer for a Bike Magazine feature. With a crew consisting of Lou Mazzante (writer), Adrian Montgomery (Scott Marketing), Niki Gudex (rider), Walker Ferguson (rider), myself and KB our local tour guide and host, it was sure to be an eventful 10 days. I hadn't spent too much time researching the area, I like going into new places fresh, but I also knew the others had spent ample time researching. This feature was shot on slide film, Fuji Velvia 100F, so might have a bit of a different look then you are use to on Pinkbike, but that's how we did it not so long ago."

They come from disciplines as varied as snowboarding, golf, soccer and pole vaulting but they all have one thing in common: hotness.
