Tracey Hannah is currently sitting comfortably in third place overall in the World Cup standings, but there's no doubt she'll be aiming to put down another solid run on Saturday to finish out the season in La Bresse. Tracey's aboard the new Polygon XquareOne DH, but although the bike was only recently released to the public
, she's been riding a prototype version for over a year. When the team first received the bike they did back-to-back runs with it versus the DH9, their race bike at the time, and the XquareOne was faster, which made making the switch to the wild looking machine an easy decision.
