Kenta Gallagher signs for Polygon UR
Privateer of the year grabs a race seat
Kenta Gallagher has only been on the World Cup downhill circuit for a couple of years but he's clearly turned some heads and has managed to secure a seat on the Polygon UR Team.
Gallagher is a World Cup winner in XC Eliminator and spared no time in grabbing top 20s in the downhill. He was one of the most promising privateers on the circuit and we're stoked he's been able to pick up a factory ride alongside the Hannahs.
Here's what Polygon had to say: "Welcome to the Polygon UR Team family Kenta Gallagher !
Kenta has already won a XC Eliminator world cup as a professional XC rider but 2 years ago he decided to stop XC to follow his dream of racing Downhill.
In only 2 years Kenta became the fastest privateer racer in the world with already top 20 results !
This is what we call passion, stopping everything to do what you really love.
Bring on 2017 and enjoy watching Kenta shredding all kinds of bikes!"
