A relative newcomer to the bikepacking scene, Sarah Hammond’s first crack of the long-distance whip came at the TransAm, a 6,900km across America in June 2016, which ended in an impressive 6th place finish.

Race to the Rock has come to be known as the race so difficult that no man could finish it. In its first year, Sarah was the only woman to enter – and the only rider to finish. In 2017 she returned to take the top spot, sealing a place in the upper echelons of endurance athletes.
