Rider Bio

Karl Menzies is a seasoned veteran who needs no introduction. The Tasmanian strongman has been a consistent force for Team UnitedHealthcare for the past several years 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.

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 2014. 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.
