Amanda’s Bio

Amanda Carey, 34, lives with her husband and super-mechanic/ski instructor, Nate, in Victor, Idaho. Although she got her undergrad at Colorado College in Political Science with the intention of going to law school, a post-grad trip to Jackson Hole in 2000 to ski bum for “just one season” turned into forever and she now happily calls the Tetons home. She discovered mountain biking that same year to pass the snow-free months, started going to group rides and jumping into local xc races. She was immediately hooked.


When ski-bum life got old, Amanda began a career in non-profit development working for the Jackson Hole Land Trust and then as the Development Director of a cycling advocacy organization, Friends of Pathways. However, play again got in the way and she left a successful career in the non-profit world in 2008 to pursue the dream of riding mountain bikes professionally. At the same time she began a graduate program and recently completed her Master’s Degree in Sports Psychology, focusing on motivation in health and sport performance. She is now building up a personal health and wellness coaching business.


Amanda has dominated the endurance mountain bike racing scene over the last 3 years. She was the National Ultra Endurance Series (NUE) Overall Champion in 2010 and 2011 and placed 2nd in the series in 2012. She has won all three of the major stage races in the US in the last 3 years. She is also a consistent top-10 performer in the national Elite cyclocross scene, showing her strengths go beyond long days in the saddle.


For 2013, Amanda is looking forward to a big change – stepping away from the 100-mile format and trying her hand again at the shorter distances with an eye on cyclocross season. Look for her at a few Pro XCTs, fighting for a podium spot at Marathon Nationals and trying her hardest to repeat her victories at the Breck Epic and the TransSylvania Epic stage races. She’s also a big fan of teaching women’s skills clinics in both mountain biking and cyclocross, so look for her to be out there sharing her love for dirt with other women all season long.
