“There are so many elements I love about mountain biking, and I think that is why it has become my favorite sport. I love the physical aspects; it makes me feel strong [and] tough and pushes me to improve my fitness so I can ride longer and faster. The emotional and psychological elements are key for me. It has become my way of feeling balanced and gives me clarity when other things in my life are stressful. The racing and career aspect can bring stress, but I am able to remember the reasons why I love the sport, and the stress is very temporary.” -Hannah Bergemann
