UHC Pro Cycling 2014-2015
Team Ibis Cycles 2012
Hannah Barnes was born in Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom. She began cycling with her family at the age of six, racing for the first time four years later in a round of the British National Youth Series.
Along with her sister Alice, Hannah joined her first team, Team Keyne, in Milton Keynes. At 13 she was selected for Talent Team, the British Cycling development programme for 14-16 year olds.
Hannah grew up with a varied racing calendar, including Road, Track, Cyclo-Cross and Mountain Biking, with her earliest international successes winning the Dutch 'Assen Junior Tour' in 2010 and 2011. During this time, she was a member of the British Cycling Olympic Development Programme, as well as racing domestically for CandiTV Marshalls-Pasta.
In 2010 Hannah won the Elite British Circuit Race Championships, alongside back-to-back wins at the London Nocturne in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
After her success as a Junior, Hannah moved to Holland in 2012 where she joined Team Ibis, her first UCI women's team, where she again won the Elite British Circuit Race Championships.
In 2013, after yet another Nocturne win, Hannah was spotted by the UnitedHealthcare Women's team, where she eventually signed for their inaugural season.
Hannah enjoyed over 15 victories with her American squad in the two years she raced for the 'Blue Train'. Winning their very first race alongside her most prestigious win, close to her hometown at the final stage of the 2015 Women's Tour (of Britain).
Her tenure with UHC ended prematurely mid-season in 2015 when she broke her ankle racing in Colorado, leaving her unable to compete for the remainder of the year. This difficult injury resulted in a five month stretch off the bike.
During this period, Hannah announced she had signed with a new European-based team, Canyon-SRAM. Her achievements on both sides of the Atlantic were also recognised by British Cycling, who awarded her a place on their Podium Programme for 2016.
On the 26th of June 2016, Hannah marked the end of her 'comeback' by winning the Elite British Road Race Championships for the first time.
Hannah is based in Girona, Spain where she lives and trains with her partner Tao Geoghegan Hart.
