Sarah's first Trans Am attempt ended in an impressive 6th place finish. Leaving scant time to recover but spurred on by the lessons of that first race, the Australian rider went straight into a second event in September.
No Man's Land
A relative newcomer to bikepacking, Sarah Hammond’s first crack of the long-distance whip came at the TransAm, a 6,900km across the USA in June 2016.17 March 2018
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.
Who better to have along to help us test our kit at high altitude? Here’s a look at some of the things Sarah wore in the wilds of Argentina.
