With the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Championships around the corner we fired off some questions to 4-time UCI World Champion Hannah Roberts (USA). Will she be able to make it 5 in Glasgow?
You’ve won the UCI BMX Park World Championships title a few times already, where have you been successful over the years? Hannah Roberts: I have been successful on and off the bike that have helped tremendously during contest. I have always had goals and an idea of where I wanna be at short term and long term. I might not always hit all the goals but it has kept me focused the last few years and has helped me be successful.
The UCI World Championships have taken you to China, France, and Abu Dhabi. Are you excited to get to Glasgow, Scotland this year? Hannah Roberts: I’m pumped to go to Scotland! I’ve never been before and my parents are going so we are definitely taking some time to explore and to really enjoy the country!
