Danny Hart | Between The Races

by 1

Ever wondered what Danny Hart does when he’s not racing? Does he nip down to his local pub for a pint? Does he like a nice G&T in a fancy glass, or a pint of mild in the local Working Men’s Club? Maybe he keeps racing pigeons, or collects stamps? Find out here in the latest ‘Between the Races‘ video.

To be honest, we’re a little disappointed we don’t get any of these answers. We still don’t know what pets Danny keeps, or what his local boozer looks like. We do get to see him ride his home trails at Hamsterley though. If you wanted to know how he’s so good in slippery conditions, now you know.

He certainly comes across as a proper local lad, born and bred in Redcar in the North East of England. He’s recently taken up Motocross – will that be a future career for him perhaps? For now, it’s just training mixed with fun.

He was cheering on our George Thompson of Making Up The Numbers at the King of The Hill race at Hamsterley the other week. George was impressed Danny know who he was. We’re impressed Danny held it together and didn’t ask for an autograph.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    A humble guy, very deserving of his past success and with the attitude he shows here, very deserving of futures success.
