Amy Louise Cure was born on 31 December 1992 in Penguin, Tasmania. During the season she resides in Belgium with her fiancee Anthony Pauwels, brother of Dimension Data rider Serge Pauwels. Anthony is amongst others a physiotherapist and osteopath for the Belgian Cycling Team and Etixx-Quick Step.
The 23-year old first started cycling in 2005 with the Mersey Valley Club CC when she was 12 years old after she attended the Tasmanian SCAT Christmas Carnivals. From than on she combined track and road cycling but like many Australians the track had more priority.
After a succesful Junior period with multiple National Track Titles and medals at the Junior Track World Championships including one world title in the scratch race Cure turned Elite in 2011. With her continued passion and dedication for cycling over the years Cure crowned herself as a double Track World Champion in 2014 (Points Race) and 2015 (Team Pursuit), a double World Cup winner (2014 & 2015) as well as Oceania Championships titles and multipe National Championships in various events. But the ultimate reward a medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (she also competed in London 2012) stayed out after a crash of the team pursuit team at one of the training rides prior to the event.
Cure also has quite some results on the road. In 2012 she won the 2nd stage in the RaboSter Zeeuwsche Eilanden after an impressive solo, finishing 2nd overall as well. In 2013 she won two stages and the overall ranking in the Tour de Feminin – Krasna Lipa and a stage in the Trophee D’or, all part of the Jayco-AIS Track Team. In 2014 she turned professional on the road with the Belgian Lotto Soudal Ladies team but last year she went fully back to the AIS Track Program with one purpose a medal at the 2016 Olympic Games.
In 2017 Cure will return back to the road with the Wiggle High5 team. Amy is an excellent all-rounder, capable of achieving results on a large variety of terrain. Arguably her greatest strength is her tireless support for her teammates, however, contributing a great deal to the successes of others. Her abilities and strengths will make her an indispensable member of Wiggle High5 in 2017.
