Why going downhill is good | Tracey Hannah | TEDxJCUCairns

In 2016 Tracey Hannah was ranked 3rd in the World for Downhill Mountain Bike Racing. In this talk Tracey explains her love of hurdling down mountains.

Tracey Hannah, is a champion downhill mountain biker who was born and raised in Cairns. She is currently ranked number three in the world.
Tracey started riding bikes at three years of age, and when she was just four years old raced her first national BMX title. Tracey began her professional downhill mountain biking career at the age of 14, when she raced her first elite national title and came second. She has since won a plethora of mountain biking titles, including first place in the Australian Championships 2014, first place in the Crankworx Air DH in 2014, and first place in the City Downhill Bratislava in 2013.
After taking a break following a few serious accidents which left her with two broken collarbones, a bruised lung, and a broken femur, Tracey returned to racing in 2014.
She placed third in the 2015 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships and in 2016 Tracey won her ninth Elite Women Downhill Australian Championships.
