Yeti Cycles pro rider Hannah Barnes got into cycling relatively late (through her younger brother, Joe) and it was 2005 before she did her first MTB race at age 18.
“I love the variety of doing a bit of everything, and thats why I find Enduro such a good fit for me,” she says. “Our parents were fully into hill running in the summer and spending winters in Kvitavatn, Norway, to cross-country ski. When I was 14, mum and dad took Joe and I out of school for a year. We sailed in our yacht Te Bheag from Fort William around the entire Atlantic.”
Having grown up living the type of adventurous life most people dream about, she only has more adventure to look forward to, now racing full time in the Enduro World Series.
