Polygon is indeed taking the title sponsorship of Slopestyle and Enduro as they are willing to carry on their developpemnt in slopestyle and push their new cutting edge Enduro bikes.
Fabien says: “As a rider i’m always curious to try and experience new different racing styles, as a team owner I had this same mindset and i’m really happy to explore new disciplines with the team. I’m really happy to have such good riders representing so well those disciplines, with in Enduro, Jamie representing the adventure, incarnating the enduro spirit and Aurélien representing the versatility and competitivness that an Enduro rider needs to have. I’m really proud to push further the DREAM RIDE SHARE way of thinking of the team and also really thankfull to have all the sponsors and staff to support this crazy project.”
“Following my great 2013 season, I was looking for the best way to continue riding in Enduro at such a level. Fabien and the Polygon UR structure offered me the complete package and the team projects coïncide with my own. I’m also really interested in helping the brands that support us in getting up to the highest step on the podium; as that’s where I expect to be in 2014!”
“Fabien suggested that I join the team to race Enduro. From the start this sounded like a great idea! It’s a very professional team but that also has a very fun atmosphere. This Enduro challenge is new for me and will be really motivating along with the few DH races I’ll take part in. The first few runs I’ve taken on the Polygon have been really positive, I can’t wait for the racing season to begin and start my new carear in enduro.”
