Suzanne Lacey

Hi, I’m Suzanne. I have been mountain biking for 15 years and racing for over 10 years. It’s been a dream of mine to be a mountain bike coach and to share my skills and knowledge and inspire riders of all ages to get on a bike and ride their local woods. From core skills mountain biking to hitting jumps and drops, I really enjoy watching my clients grow in confidence, develop their skills and give big high fives at the end if each session!

I started racing 4-cross in 2006 at national level and progressed to world cup level. I made the natural progression to racing Downhill Mountain biking in 2012 and raced my first downhill mountain bike world cup in Elite women’s in 2014 at Fort William. After a couple of years retiring from racing to travel and ride the worlds best bike parks from Morzine to Whistler, I have now started racing Downhill again this year which I will continue to at grass roots and national level. I love riding at my local spots at Woburn and Chicksands and like to venture around the country trail riding, downhilling and hitting bigger jumps.
