Tracey Hannah is a 9x Australian National DH champ. She earned a set of rainbow stripes competing as a junior and currently races for the Polygon team along with her brother Mick Hannah. In between winning a World Championship in the junior ranks and racing for Polygon, Hannah took a 5-year hiatus. At the time, it was difficult for women to receive the same level of sponsorship. In recent years, she’s suffered two broken collarbones, a broken femur, and several other injuries. Despite the accidents and the sponsorship challenges, she still loves riding and competing.
Learn more about her story in this Ted Talk she gave in Cairns, Australia, earlier this year.
