Hannah Barnes targets Gent Wevelgem


The team’s line up for Gent Wevelgem on Sunday 28 March will be Alena Amialiusik, Hannah Barnes, Elise Chabbey, Tiffany Cromwell, Lisa Klein and Kasia Niewiadoma.

Hannah Barnes said the race is a special one for her and is one of her goals for 2021.

“Gent Wevelgem is a target for me this year. It was the first race I finished in my first year out of the junior category so it holds a place in my heart.”

“I love the race. The parcours has a bit of everything and in a normal year I love hearing and seeing all the British fans come over to watch us.”

“I have learnt from my mistake in 2020. You can’t switch off during this race for even a moment. You have to prepare yourself for many scenarios.”

“The start of the season has gone relatively well for myself and the team but there is definitely more to come. I found my racing rhythm pretty quickly. I was motivated and felt ready so there was no fight to try and find my race head.”
