Hannah has been cycling for 8 years. She has raced throughout Britain in National level races, as well as International races in Europe such as Tour of Brittany. Hannah lived in Belgium for a short while in 2012 from the help of the Dave Rayner Fund where she was racing in UCI level races as well as Kermesses. Since starting racing in 2008, Hannah has won four National Championship titles- once in the Madison with Hannah Barnes and three times National Derny Champion.
Hannah currently works at a pub in my village which fits in around her racing and training commitments. In July 2010 Hannah finished Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College gaining a Distinction in BTec Sport and a C at A-Level in English Literature.
At the age of 15 Hannah started cycling after she became injured during her athletics and cross country days, where she represented her high school, Macclesfield district and also her county, Cheshire. After having a year and a half out of running because of the injury she was no longer able to go back to running, so needed a sport to do to keep her active so turned to cycling as a way of keeping fit. The first taste of cycling was at the Manchester Velodrome at a taster session. She was hooked and never looked back.
Hannah competes in many different cycling disciplines such as: Road racing, track racing and time trials.
During 2015, Hannah's season was put on hold because she had an operation in February to have a litre and a half of bone marrow taken out to give to my brother, Tom, who was in need of his 3rd bone marrow transplant. This meant Hannah needed over 2 months off my bike, so getting back into training in the peak of the race season was hard, However Hannah was still able to help her team mates to victories and be part of the team once back up to speed. Family, friends and Team WNT have been supberb in helping to re-focus for 2016!
