As well as being a talented World Cup downhiller and Hutchinson UR rider, Fabien Cousiné is also the team’s passionate owner. Formally known as the United Ride Team, in 2012 they formed a new partnership with Hutchinson. This gave them both the new name, along with new riders Mick and Tracey Hannah, Guillaume Cauvin and Holly Feniak.
As a rider himself, he became the newest addition to the Kenda Morewood team in 2009. He remained in the top 20 during the first half of the season in 2011, where he achieved 1st in DH and took away another epic 1st in 4X at the legendary Lyon Avalanche Cup.
Cousine has always remained extremely committed to mountain biking. Having recently commented on this demanding double-role, Cousine has said, “So doing both is not really the most reasonable choice but this choice is about passion and not reason. 2014 season will be a challenge and i will give my best to pull off some good results doing what i love the most; trying to go as fast as possible on my mountain bike!”
