Rider Bio:

Dutch Amy Pieters is one of the new signings of the Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling team for 2016.  Born on 1 June 1991, the 24 year old from Haarlem, The Netherlands, has spent her entire professional career (starting in 2011) with the Liv-Plantur (former Giant-Shimano) team.

Pieters is from a real cycling family as she is the daughter from former pro cyclist and current Belgian National track coach Peter Pieters and a sister from Roy Pieters. So despite she didn’t want to become a cyclist in the beginning it was obvious that she was going to try her luck in cycling. Starting at the age of 9 Pieters started to do her first races at age 10. In the beginning it was mostly for pleasure but it became more serious from the beginners and the juniors. Pieters won a lot of races and became a National Road Champion in both categories.

Despite having good results as a Junior Amy joined the Merida Cycling Team of Sissy van Alebeek in 2010 as a first years professional. She made the choice to start slowly and to ride with the National Team of Johan Lammerts a few times in the big races. From 2011 the Merida team turned into Skil-Koga (now Liv-Plantur) and developed into a very structured professional team over the last few years.

In the past five years as a professional cyclist Pieters has won the Omloop het Nieuwsblad (2013), a stage in the Tour of Qatar (2014), the prologue in the Route de France (2015) and twice Dwars door Vlaanderen (2014/2015). Other impressive results where 3rd in La Course (2015), 2nd at the National Championships (2015), 2nd in the World Cup Ronde van Drenthe (2015), 2nd in the Open de Suede Vargarda (2014) and 3rd in the World Cups of Sweden and China in 2013.

Amy is also a respectable rider on the track with multiple National Championships. In 2012 she has competed in the Team Pursuit at the Olympic Games, in London where she took a sixth place in the team pursuit with The Netherlands.

Her abilities and strengths will make her an indispensable member of the team.
