'The Street Race'

In each edition, a model competes against a professional in a different line of business--one that I assume has nothing to do with high-heeled strutting.

The contenders in this episode are the beautiful Nicole Trufio, an obviously experienced skateboarder against Al, a pro bike messenger; surprisingly enough, the girl can skate.

Trufio is outfitted through most of the video in a white tee shirt under a sparkly jacket teamed with some athletic looking leggings; however, for the finale, she emerges in a sexy bikini-like top under a black blazer and jeans. Trufio wisely topped off both looks with a helmet. Stats for Skateboarding Models Trending: Older & Mild
