Tracey Hannah (born 13 June 1988 in Cairns, Australia) is a Professional Downhill bike rider and Mick Hannah's younger sister. She raced her first national BMX title when she was 4 years old. Tracey chose to do MTB when she saw Mick Hannah (her eldest brother of four) was racing down a hill very fast on an MTB camp in 1997.

When she was 13 her parents let her try downhill riding. As soon as she was 14, she raced for the national titles in elite, and she came in 2nd place. For 7 years, she was Australian National Champion. After that, she started racing overseas and her results were; First in the NORBA Series overall, A Junior World Championship, Third in a World Cup overall, Third in Elite World Championships, and she has won a World Cup Round.

In 2012 her best places were 1st and 2nd out of 7 rounds of the World Cup Series, and she finished 4th Overall. However, she missed out on racing the 6th, and 7th rounds. During practice for the 6th round, she crashed and was helicoptered out to the nearest hospital. She had broken her femur, collarbone, bruised a lung, and had a hematoma.

Her first race, after recovering from her injury, was 7 months later in February 2013. This was the Australian National Championships, and she took first place. She was the National Champion for 2013.
