Amanda Carey lives with her husband in Victor, Idaho. During the summer, she rides for the Stan’s Women’s Elite mountain bike team and is excited to be continuing on with the Stan’s family for the 2013 cyclocross season.
Amanda is coming off an incredible 2013 mountain bike season that included GC wins at both the Tran-Sylvania Epic and the Breck Epic. Although Amanda has focused on ultra-endurance mountain biking over the past few years, she’s also found success in cyclocross during her “off season.”
The 2012 season was her best cross to date. She scored her first UCI wins, winning both days at the North Carolina Grand Prix. She also had top 5s at the Cincy 3 festival and the Boulder Cup weekend, was 2nd both days at the New Year’s Resolution in Chicago, and 8th at the Ft. Collins USGP. She also won the Idaho State Championship for the 2nd time and placed 2nd at the National Championships in the Master’s 35-39 field.
2013 will be her first season racing cyclocross with team support and also without a full season of ultra endurance mountain biking in her legs. She’s looking forward to racing cyclocross as part of a team and can’t wait to be back on the Stan’s tubeless wheels and setup.
