Ty Kady is from Brea, CA where he lives with his wife of 12 years. Prior to racing cross country, Ty was a former A.M.A 250cc privateer and campaigned selected rounds of the A.M.A Supercross and Outdoor Motocross Series from 1994-2001. He had the opportunity to race against the world's best riders including Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Doug Henry, and Jeff Emig among others. In retrospect, Ty is proud of his motocross career. "When I was younger and just after I stopped racing in 2001, I was full of disappointment that I never broke into that super "Elite" group of guys like Ricky or Jeremy, but that is why they are the two best riders the sport has ever seen!. Now that I'm older, I appreciate the fact that I was able to blast off against the top 40 guys in the world. I got to travel the country and race in some of the greatest stadiums around the globe! I'm also proud that I rode for some of the industry's best sponsors and created life long relationship with some of them."
Ty's accomplishments on the bicycle have been almost equally impressive as his motocross resume. He has won the Sea Otter Classic six times. In 2011 he captured all three mountain bike National titles in the CAT 1 30-34 division. Ty has over 15 combined cross-country national individual race wins, ranging from the old "expert" division, to Semi-Pro and now as a Master's racer in the CAT 1 30-34.
Ty also acts as team manager for the Sho-Air/Specialized Pro cross country team, and also maintains his position as marketing director of the US Cup mountain bike series.
