My name is Hannah Otto and I’ve been racing for over half my life. I started at 9 years old, racing on a bike more than half my weight. Eleven years later I received my professional license in triathlon and mountain biking.
After winning the XTERRA Amateur World Championship in triathlon (for the 2nd time), I shifted my attention to mountain biking and left the running and swimming behind. I worked up the ranks, starting as the two-time high school State Champion through NICA and eventually became a five-time collegiate cycling National Champion. I’ve racked up multiple Pro-XCT wins and represented USA Cycling on the World Championship XCO stage numerous times. In 2020 I was named to the Olympic Long Team and in 2022 I won the infamous Leadville 100 MTB Race. One of my favorite parts of sport is the ability to continue to redefine your own limits and be better than you were yesterday. I look forward to continuing to test myself on the ever-growing stage of world cup competitions and domestic mtb and gravel events.
In 2018 I graduated from Lindenwood University with a degree in both Athletic Training (healthcare) and Exercise Science and was named the School of Health Sciences Student of the Year. I competed in Division II NCAA swimming, cross country, and track, as well as Division I mountain bike, cyclocross, and road racing. I am a USA Cycling Certified Coach and a Board Certified Athletic Trainer. I started my own coaching business in 2017 to help others chase their goals.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to live my dream; racing and representing my sponsors, partners, and the USA around the world; drawing on the knowledge and experience that God has blessed me with.
