Video: Transition Bikes Welcomes Hannah Bergemann

PRESS RELEASE: Transition Bikes

Welcome to the Transition family Hannah Bergemann!

Over the last few years, we have watched HB grow from a local shredder, to EWS athlete, to freeride sender. A true legend in the making. Her riding speaks for itself, but her humble attitude speaks far beyond any race result or huge send. You would be hard pressed to find anyone more modest that charges this hard. She is always smiling, and always stoked. We are pumped to not only have her aboard as an athlete, but also a part of the marketing team here at the Transition HQ!

Look forward to watching her shred steep lines in the desert and put down fast times between the tape this year, and for years to come.

 Damn, didn't know a insta model in a bikini sitting on a DH bike would trigger someone so bad.

 @skidmarkbro: oh come on, Rachel strait isn't all that bad

 @spaceofades: that's who exactly I was thinking.... I will continue to still follow on IG.

 @spaceofades: I don't want to start naming names and categorizing but I think Rachel is a ripper and well deserving of a GT sponsorship. Doesn't hurt she's a sight for soar eyes. BUT, there are other Insta accounts I see that @Ayyggss would really flip his shit on. Perfectly manicured hair, eyelashes longer than a mondraker, full face on lap, gogs around the neck, sitting on long travel trail bike nowhere near a worthy trail. 250K followers and barely able to use the front brake. #sexsells

 @skidmarkbro: her results are not deserving of a full factory sponsorship.

Local results are blah and full on EWS are at the bottom end. Lot of other racers who do better than her have little to no sponsorship.

 @skidmarkbro: NEVER use the front brake...????????

 @jaydawg69: if you saw the hits in this video in person, and knew that she rides this level of gnar for her quick lunch break rides, you'd quickly change you tone. that rock roll featured several times in the video makes you want respelling gear when you see it in real life. #respect to Hannah.

 @moroj82: jaydawg is speaking to Rachel Strait, not Hannah. I don't see anyone questioning Hannah's ability to shred crazy stuff. I have seen that rock line and wouldn't think about, let alone when it is wet like in her video. Great riding and exciting to see her added to the hooligans at Transition.

 Actually wasn’t referring to Hannah. Mad respect to her. I know the area.

 @jaydawg69: Not about results pal - Enough room for advocates and influence types as well as racers, both do the job of marketing and selling mountain biking, because if you like it or not - this is marketing, be that racers or advocates.

 Love those accounts where you scroll through and do not find a single picture of the girl sending something, just nice bikini stuff and panorama pictures standing beside the bike ... social media ruins real values!

 @see-the-world: it's kinda a shame a pro factory racer has to do bikini shoots to be relevant.

 All the hate for Rachael, but no one mentions Phil Kmetz race results. Sound like a bunch of misogynist losers complaining about nothing. Typical losers trying to play both sides of the fence.
  • 1 0
 @Caddz: what about Phil? Don't think he has a full factory sponsorship to race from GT. He also gets better results than RS.

 @jaydawg69: sounds like you don’t know the terms of any contracts but that doesn’t stop anyone from throwing their opinions around.

 Would have loved to see more of the actual riding and the impressive features. This clip is so choppy and full of cuts that all sense of movement and scale is lost.

 Well that was epic! Just shown my 9 year daughter as inspiration, her first response was ''Woah, thats cool, who's that?'', Great job transition.

 Likewise, always showing my daughter the lady rippers. It only gets awkward when she asks why mom doesn't ride like that Wink

 No expectations when I clicked on this video. Holy shit this girl has wicked style on the bike. Big moves super agressive style. I will be watching Hanna this year hope she gets some podium finishes .

 Everybody in Bellingham knows and it’s gonna be wild watching the world find out this year. Tahnée who??

 (To be clear, Tahnee also rips and we don’t need to pit them against each other like there is somehow a limit on how many awesome women riders there can be. But still, Transition are making the best of this...transitional season!)

 Have had the great pleasure of meeting her at one of our local trailbuilding parties, had no idea at who she was at the time, but super nice and humble woman. Congrats on the sponsor!

 Heck Yah Hannah! And thank you Transition Bikes for continuing to support women.

 HB cut the course in 1990....
Or did he?
Ledgend has it Greg Herbold cut the course at worlds. It’s rumored that his mechanics lifted up the tape on a section. The more likely truth is he pedaled his ass to the top of the course for extra practice all week while the uplift was closed.

 So much steez! That hovering over the rock wall was totally sick, had to rewatch a few times. Congrats Hannah, keep up the amazing progression and your awesome humble attitude.

 It will be sick to see someone ride the Sentinel to its full potential as a race bike. I've ridden it a couple of times and it is scary fast. Wants to go much faster than I often want to. Looks like she'll have no problem matching its intentions.
  • 1 0
 Do you have any experience to compare the Sentinel to the Patrol?

I bought a Patrol this year and really love it. There was no choice for me to make between either model of bike as i wasn't even intending to get a Transition (due to them being too expensive for me). I had planned to get a base-model YT which was more in my price justification range. It just so happened that i saw the Patrol on sale at at an insanely reduced price (last one in the shop) that caused me to take a punt on it. All other Transition models were full price.

I don't hear to many comments about the Patrol but lots of praise for the Sentinel. Does the Patrol compare well?

(I'm aware they're intended for slightly different use/terrain. I just mean are people as similarly stoked by the Patriol as they seem to be for the Sentinel?)
  • 1 0
 @DidNotSendIt: Don't over think it. Both bikes are awesome. I personally prefer 27.5 wheels. I've ridden the Patrol and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

 Hannah is a beast and this is freaking AWESOME! She is so inspiring and it is SO rad to see a company like Transitions support her. This edit is amazing! She is so smooth yet aggressive. She is also an amazing skier! What a great post to start the year. Sucks Pinkbike comments always have to say sh*t that is so irrelevant and not helpful, but who cares. We all got to look past those idiots and keep pushing the women's side of the sport forward. Rock on Hannah!

 Are Transition taking a swipe at Hannah Barnes for course cutting?
  • 1 0
 Is there a story about that? for transition to make such a pointed statement about it, albeit a hashtag, it it must be some level of a bigdeal..

 @Kapricorn: It was 1990.
  • 2 0
 Early 90's the BMX guys were just starting to trickle into MTB (Tomac and shortly after Lops, Cully, King,Carter etc.). That was pretty much Herbold's last chance of actually winning a gravity race. #HBcutthecourse

 Shredder! Q: is the secret to getting that sweet sweet slowmo roost piling fresh loose loam in a packed berm?
  • 2 0
 newer the berm the easier it is to roost. Watch a WC race and you will very little roost... looks good but is slow.
  • 2 0
 put the apex of the turn later in the berm and come in super hot and lower than normal
