You already know that from the downhill area Hutchsinson URTeam. The team around Mick and Tracey Hannah successfully competed in the Downhill World Cup and other races with the up-and-coming Indonesian bike manufacturer Polygon in the past two years.
After my great 2013 season, I was looking for a new team with whom I could build on my good results.
Polygon is now expanding its commitment further. With the new enduro team Polygon UR the Indonesians would also like to attack in the Enduro World Series (EWS) in the future. For this reason, none other than Jamie Nicoll was brought on board. Nicoll was quite an unknown rider until last year's EWS races. However, due to some excellent results, this changed abruptly. For example, he achieved an impressive eighth place in the overall EWS classification. The 35-year-old New Zealander used to ride Santa Cruz bikes and was mostly on his own. As part of manager Fabien Cousinié's team, this will be different in the future. In addition to Nicoll, Frenchman Aurélien Giordanengo will also play for Polygon UR go on the hunt for success.
Nicoll himself is pleased with the new sporty home: "After my great 2013 season, I was looking for a new team with whom I could build on my good results. The structure around Fabien [cousiné] and Polygon UR gives me the full package and the team projects align with my own. I want to represent my sponsors in the best possible way. My goal is definitely the podium!”
