Matt Stuttard and Brady Stone sign with new EWS Polygon Factory Racing team

Polygon Factory Racing entered the EWS scene, signing Matt Stuttard and young gun Brady Stone. Dan Wolfe, who has represented Polygon for several years, will take on the role of team manager for the new factory team while continuing as a racer.

Matt Stuttard announced in December that he would no longer ride for Privateer Bikes, which he helped start when his Hunt Wheels sponsor’s parent company, The Rider Firm, decided it wanted to make a bike. Stuttard saw the project through a few early sketches all the way to the EWS top 20. Now he decided it was time to take his racing career to the next level with an all new official EWS team.

Super excited to join @polygonfactoryracing / @polygonbikes and work with some well-established brands alongside @thebigbad_wolfe & @bradystone13. It’s a huge step forward for me in my career and I’m excited to see what we can achieve. We’ve already been working on some new stuff and I’m really looking forward to a big year in 2022. (It’s blooming hard keeping this one quiet for so long)!!! Keep an eye out for some bike updates.matt stuttard

Brady Stone is a 21 year old ripper based on the South Island of New Zealand. In 2019, he ranked 2nd in the overall EWS U21 ranking. In 2020, he took 1st place in the EWS U21 World Rankings. Last season, his first year in the big leagues, he finished the season ranked 30th. If his current trajectory is anything to judge by, the young runner is on an upward path.

It also looks like Polygon has a new enduro bike in the works, so stay tuned for more developments as this young team finds its feet.

great quotes THIS IS GOOOO @polygonfactoryracing. I’ve been working with @polygonbikes on this for a long time, it gives me immense pride to introduce the new factory team at Polygon Bikes. Proud to have @bradystone13 & @mattstuttard46 as teammates in the future. It’s crazy to be able to call them teammates. Lots of new uncharted territory for me personally as I will also become a team leader. Keep your eyes open because there’s more to come soon. We have been working on a brand new Enduro bike, all I can say is [mindblown emoji].Dan Wolfe
