Team Polygon UR have gone from strength to strength during their existence, developing young talent as well as supporting big name racers. The latest signing, straight out of France, is Alexandre Fayolle, who impressed on the World Cup circuit in 2015 and with the support the team will provide, should be set for big results in 2016.
“My passion for speed and mechanical sport came from my Dad. Since I was a kid he always took me to watch rallying and at 4 he offered me my first Moto!. Since then I became a speed junky! I always push harder and harder racing my mountain bike or training on my motorbike or rally car. I’m really proud and exited to be supported by a team such as Polygon UR”
Team owner Fabien Cousinié:
“If you have been on the side of world cup tracks you cannot have missed Alexandre because he is so wild! Perhpas there are a lot of people that are winning practice but when you finish top 10 as a privateer at Val di Sole, you have definitely something special.
“In the team we all want to have fun and live the dream, but world cup downhill is not a holiday cruise. Whatever rider’s social media accounts are looking like, if you want to be at the top there is just one option – work harder than the others. Alex has a real dedication and hunger that the best racer’s all have.
“Personally, I will plan to help Alex with his English. I’ve told him I will cut his supply of baguettes until he steps it up a little bit more!”
