Hannah Barnes (Uno-X) is a former professional rider who, along with Lizzie Deignan, followed in the footsteps of Nicole Cooke and Emma Pooley to form part of the early, growing pool of British riders in the European peloton.

Barnes started out as a successful track and criterium racer in the UK, becoming the elite circuit race national champion whilst still a junior, and winning the London Nocturne. Her prowess in British racing earned her a spot on the UnitedHealthcare team for 2014. Barnes spent two years with UnitedHealthcare during which she won stages of the Tour de San Luis, the Tour of the Gila and the Women’s Tour.

In 2016, Barnes signed for Canyon-SRAM, where she spent six seasons until 2021. During her time at Canyon-SRAM, the 30-year-old became British champion and won a stage of the Giro Donne. She left the German team in 2022 to join the new Uno-X women’s team, where she was one of their most experienced riders and road captains.

Some ongoing injury problems hampered her season, particularly her preferred time trial discipline. Barnes announced in the summer of 2023 that it would be her last in the professional peloton.
