Be the Inspiration: Natasha Hansen
Why do you love cycling?
It’s just so thrilling when you’re riding around and you’re getting up to high speeds. I just enjoy the ability to be able to push myself in training and then be able to get a good measure of where I am against everybody else in the world.
How do you gain momentum?
To go faster, sometimes we need to push bigger gears in which case we need to have a strong body to be able to transfer that power and strength to the pedals.
What is it like representing your country?
When you step on to the world stage, and you’re representing New Zealand at a world championship level, it’s exciting knowing that you’re representing your country. And you’re not just riding for yourself, but you’re riding for what the fern stands for, and everybody else.
