Riding since she raced for a national BMX title at just 4 years old, Tracey Hannah grew up on the pedals. Following in the footsteps of big brother Mick she started racing mountain bikes downhill at 13 and competed for the Australian National title in elite class finishing second. Every year following this for 7 years in a row she was the Australian national champion and from there began competing internationally. After her fair share of wins and injuries, Tracey finished up 3rd overall for the 2016 UCI World Cup and is looking towards next season hungry for more.
Big brother to fellow Team UR member Tracey, Australian born ‘Sik Mik’ Hannah has had a strong career, beginning it by finishing second in downhill at the 2000 World Junior Championship in Spain when he was just 16. Following this his achievements include gaining 5th overall at the downhill World Cup and 3rd at the World Champs in 2009. 2013 saw him 2nd at the downhill World Championship, won his third Australian national title and gain two 2nd spots at Crakworx Whistler. 2016 saw Mick finish 13th overall at the World Cup. When he isn’t racing or training Mick enjoys camping and spare fishing.
The youngest of the team at just 20 years old, Alexandre Fayolle of France has proved a lot in his short time as a professional downhill mountain biker. Last year he scored a top 10 in Elite at the MTB World Cup in Val Di Sole. With a background in motocross and rally, he is known for his wild and fearless style. He is a self-described speed junky and has brought this talent to his mountain biking career as he claimed his first UCI podium in the 2016 season.
The newest member of Team UR is Kenta Gallagher, 24 from Scotland. Kenta was the fastest world cup privateer and already has a World Cup XC Eliminator race under his belt back from 2013.
