Amanda Spratt to leave team Bike Exchange-Jayco

After 11 years at Australian elite cycling team Bike Exchange-Jayco, New South Wales born Amanda Spratt has signed a two-year deal with American WorldTour team Trek Segafredo.

Spratt says, “I’ve spent 11 years with GreenEdge and I’m so grateful for these years, but I just felt ready for a new challenge and a different environment,” Spratt said. “I may be one of the older riders now, but I still feel young at heart and my move to Trek-Segafredo has me feeling like a kid in a candy store – and I like candy a lot.

“Trek-Segafredo has always been a team I’ve admired so much. From the first year of the women’s team, I really felt they were a team that raised the level of professionalism and support for women. I love that the Team has such a strong vision and values and for this reason it feels like a dream for me to become part of such a special team.”

It has been a bumpy couple of years for the three-time Santos Tour Down Under winner after being diagnosed with an iliac artery endofibrosis which led to months of recovery post-surgery. Things started to look up as she made her return to racing at the 2022 Santos Festival of Cycling before her WorldTour season kicked off.

However, her campaign at the Giro d’Italia Donne fell short after catching COVID towards the end of the race, and later in July while competing at the historic Tour de France Femmes, Spratt was forced to abandon after getting caught up in a high-speed crash on stage 3.

Spratt will join fellow Aussie riders Lauretta Hanson and Chloe Hosking in the Trek Segafredo team in 2023.

We hope Spratt can don her new kit for the first time at the 2023 Santos Tour Down under which will see the women compete at UCI WorldTour level for the first time in the events history.
