Video: Tahneé Seagrave talks injury, recovery, and new perspectives

by 1

There’s a vulnerability and honesty to this Wahoo Frontiers: Tahneé Seagrave video that we think you’ll appreciate. Tahneé Seagrave talks about the changes in perspective she’s experienced following some significant injuries, and with this comes some depth of character and thought that perhaps we haven’t seen before. Some rehab and recovery stories focus on the gym work and the triumph of getting back on the bike, but this is a more nuanced story.

After a whirlwind rise from a 12-year old Morzine-based phenom, to a world championship and multiple world cup-winning global superstar, Tahneé Seagrave is one of the most modest gifted riders to have ever graced the mountain bike race tracks of the world. This will not be news to many.

The story of a great racer goes beyond what happens between the tapes though; from ascendancy to the pinnacle of the World Cup downhill to successive injuries in a short span of time left Tahneé in need of release from a world that can become all-consuming.

Finding happiness in simplicity and power in her own voice has been key to navigating the journey back towards contentment. Now, in the depth of the off-season, Tahneé looks forward to discovering her future frontiers with a newfound perspective that makes her more motivated, faster, and an overall healthier well-rounded athlete and human.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think 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. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    A nice quiet introspective. I really enjoy Tahnee’s energy and sense of fun although this video wasn’t about that side of her.
