Rider Bio

Karl Menzies is a seasoned veteran, starting his 10th year with the Momentum
Sports Group, the owners and operators of the current UnitedHealthcare Pro
Cycling Team. The Tasmanian strongman has been a consistent force for Team
UnitedHealthcare for the past decade and has consistently delivered both his
teammates and himself to the podium dozens of times, season after season.

2013 was a great year for Menzies. The big man chalked up a number of top
results, including 3rd place Overall in the 2013 Speed Week; 4th Overall in USA
Cycling’s National Criterium Calendar (NCC); and 5th Overall in the USA CRITS
Series. Menzies also won the Sandy Spring Cycling Challenge; took 2nd place in
both the Iron Hill Twilight and Herman Miller Brickyard Criteriums; finished in
3rd place on Days 1 and 2 of the 2013 Tulsa Tough; along with taking 3rd place
in both the Prairie State Cycling Series’ Elmhurst and Lake Bluff Criteriums. In
2012, Menzies finished 2nd in the TD Mayor’s Cup, and 7th in Stage 8 of the Tour
of Qinghai Lake, and as always, was an integral component to the Team’s success
throughout the season. The rider racked up further top-10 results throughout the
2014 season with a 3rd place finish at the Belmont Criterium and 8th place
finish at the Chris Thater Memorial Criterium.

Menzies ability to hold such high speeds at the end of a race has been
instrumental to so many victories for Team UnitedHealthcare through the years
and we should expect nothing different in 2015. It is no wonder why every
sprinter says, “Put Karl in front of me and I will win the race!” A
family-oriented man, Menzies now resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan with his wife
and two young children.
