Amy Pieters (born 1 June 1991) is a Dutch professional road and track cyclist, who currently rides for UCI Women's WorldTeam SD Worx.[5] She was a member of the Dutch team that finished sixth at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the team pursuit (together with Ellen van Dijk, Kirsten Wild and Vera Koedooder).[6]

On 23 December 2021, Pieters was placed in an induced coma and underwent emergency surgery to relieve pressure on her brain caused by a fall that day during a training ride near Alicante with the Dutch national track team.[7] After being repatriated to the Netherlands the following month,[8] Pieters had regained consciousness in April but, due to the brain injury suffered, doctors were unsure of her "residual symptoms and remaining abilities".[9][10]

Personal life[edit]

Pieters is the daughter of former professional Peter Pieters, the niece of Sjaak Pieters and the sister of Roy Pieters.[2]
