Amanda Carey returns to take the (NUE) Mohican 100, WN's by 44 min over 2nd!


  • 1. Amanda Carey (Kenda/Felt) in 7:42:26 (Note how much time Amanda has over 2nd!)
  • 2. Brenda Simril (Motor Mile Racing) +0:44:04
  • 3. Andrea Wilson (Outdoors, Inc.) +1:02:02
  • 4. Kathleen Harding (Team CF) +1:03:54

It sure is great to see a race like the Mohican 100 (NUE) step up and provide equal pay for the gals. Travel and costs needs to be covered!

Amanda Carey takes the WN at the NUE Mohican 100.

There seems to be a move towards better pay for the women pros (e.g. Exergy Tour). Let's just hope this trend holds the course! Let it be clear, both men & women need more prize money to stay in the hunt!

When a pro, meaning they are attempting to make a living has to pay out more to attend a race than the first place prize is just wrong. Thank goodness there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. Perhaps cycling sports will grow?

We still have a long ways to go, the races are stepping up, but the cycling industry should step up and start putting forth some cash for these racers to cover their cost, verses just parts, etc...

If we want to see action pack cycling sport we need to pay them for all their efforts and time. Then they won't be see as bike bums.

When a guy can make $1ma a weekend in golf or $500,000 in NASCAR one day verses the pay at most cycling events of $1,000 paints a clear picture.

Now think if the race cost $1,200 to enter, the travel costs, etc... Oh yes, there are bills to pay at home, if they own one? Most folks can't lean on mommy & daddy!

Great job Mohican 100 race!

Show time cost!
