Good news for downhill race fans, former World junior Champion Tracey Hannah is making a return to racing!
I said I’d be back!
It has been 4 years since I raced overseas. The time flew by like a rocket launcher…… not!
I didn’t have anything to do with racing; it was either on, or off! If I thought about it, I’d be obsessed, but that hasn’t been a possibility… Till Now!!
What about me? My name is Tracey Hannah. I used to race downhill mountain bikes. I stopped riding because it was too expensive to keep going overseas, and I guess a break was good. My best results were Junior World Champion, 1st at a World Cup Round, 3rd overall World Cup Series and 3rd Elite World Championships. I love riding.
Who am I? A sand miner….. Still Tracey Hannah, still love riding, still need a full time job for $$, still want to be the Pro Women’s Downhill Champion of the World more than once. I still know how to ride a bike.
Where is Australia? We need to win a Pro World Title for the Women Downhill Mountain bike riders of this Country, it has to be done. I am willing.
Why? There is born in some of us a will to win, a drive that forces action, we don’t eat, we don’t sleep, we don’t smile, we don’t breath until the win is won.
When? Now, I need to be selected to represent my country in the coming World Championships. I will race whatever races it takes to guarantee my selection into the team. I will be in Leo gang!
Determination and a will to win is my driving force, I want to race, I love riding and….. I just happen to like training.
There is only so far I can go on my own. I would like to race the Australian National Championships, and hopefully some events overseas that offer UCI points in preparation for the 2012 World Titles.
I am currently being supported by Nsdynamics, and Gt Bicycles have given me a bike to race.
If you want your brand represented by a girl at the World Champs I am the person to call.
Thank you for all your support, it is so encouraging to know that you are all out there, helping me get back up and on the scene again.
