Fabien Cousiné is a busy man running the Polygon UR team, so when he landed in Queenstown to say he was itching to ride would be an understatement. Heading over to Skyline MTB park to pick up his season pass we wondered whether he would make it to the lift from the ticket office? Thankfully the trails were pretty clear allowing Fab to revel in his excitement before too many people saw him.

 This dude used to ride for some team riding a Morewood,think it was in Dirt mag or something, whip crazy, oodles of style and fast..very. Intelligent also,think he travels (or travelled) a lot to see his chick studying in Canada (I think? Can't remember,tired and though had posted already) manualling in my sleep (haha best be careful)
  • 5 0
 Rode for Morewood in 2009 replacing Nathan Rennie on the team when he got hurt. It was Fab and Mitch Delfs if I am not mistaken.

 I've not been on a DH bike for 6 months, it's going to be at least 3 more long months. This will be me (with a lot less talent) in the Summer. Can't wait!
