We caught up with the 2019 World DH Champ Tracey Hannah to chat about her new bike set up for 2020 and her thoughts on the upcoming season. Most of the components stay the same for this year but Tracey has moved up to a size large frame and has been hitting the gym ready for 2020. Tracey hasn't raced since the final World Cup last year so Crankworx Rotorua is her chance to get the race rig dialled ready for Lousa.
Tracey has switched to a large frame as she has got stronger over off season and benefits from the longer top tube.
Polygon UR have switched from Box to TRP for their DH drivetrains.
Crankworx Rotorua will be Tracey's first race since the Snowshoe World Cup in 2019. She was the winner here in 2019 and 2017 and was unbeaten at Crankworx downhill races last year so will be favourite to kick off her season with a gold medal.
Tracey is running Promax bars cut to 740mm.
Tracey was running prototype Kenda tires last year and the new Hellcat is the finished product.

Tracey doesn't run the super-powerful Trickstuff Maxima brakes like the rest of her team but the Direttissimas. Despite having 25% less stopping power, Tracey says it's still plenty for her. Tracey runs Galfer pads and rotor in the front, but Trickstuff pads and rotor in the rear.
