We’ve been fans of TAHNEE SEAGRAVE since the very early days, we remember her flying around on one of ex-Dirt team rider (and World Champion) Vanessa Quin’s old baby blue Intense bikes. Everyone knew back then that Tahnee was going to be something special. Team FMD (Follow My Dream) was formed and she was off.
Tahnee Seagrave’s Transition TR500
Fast forward a chunk of years and we now find Tahnee aged 20, a junior World Champ, a regular on the World Cup podium and a senior World Champs bronze medalist. She has come of age. But there has been a lot of change recently for the young British rider. The whole Seagrave family have now moved back to the UK from their long time home near Morzine in the French Alps, and of course more recently Tahnee and the whole FMD team have signed to Transition Bikes. We look at Tahnee Seagrave’s Transition TR500.
We sent photographer Laurence Crossman-Emms along to Seagrave HQ in deepest darkest Wales to document Tahnee Seagrave’s Transition TR500 downhill bike build with mechanic Matt Allingham (The Bicycle Service), and we fired her some questions too.

Where do you live?
How would you describe your riding style?
I’d say I’m quite composed and relaxed, I’m not very aggressive, but I have an alert posture.
