"I love challenging myself physically and mentally in all sports and whatever life throws at me. I'm addicted to adrenaline and anything with two wheels. Female empowerment, progression of sport, French Bulldogs, marketing and media is my passion." WORLD TITLES: 3 x BMX & 5 x Mountain Bike

“The industry is growing and Sea Otter is the perfect collaboration to bring us all together in one festival family fun environment on two wheels. Whatever bike you’re riding, the pros right through to the amateurs, this is a real participation event. There’s everything for the family as well as music and with the trade industry there, you’ll see all the latest release products.”

Hank Duchateau

Meet Hank, ambassador for adaptive cycling. As an avid cyclist, advocate, and active member of his cycling community, Hank has never shied away from a challenge. In fact he's known to tackle trails, roads, velodromes and gravel routes on his hand cycle - he's also a long standing member of his Community Access Board (20 years and counting!). Hank's goal is not just to dominate in races/rides, but to encourage others with disabilities to experience the joy that is cycling. His commitment to creating a more inclusive bike industry is something that will positively impact future generations of cyclists everywhere.

At 72 years young, Hank continues to push not only himself, but also his communities. “You have to get in and change things from the inside - that’s where the real change happens,” he told us.
