Reigning women’s downhill World Cup champion Tracy Moseley will return to her multi-discipline roots in 2012, with downhill, enduro and Pro Sprint Eliminator races on her radar.
Moseley, who has ridden for Trek World Racing for the last three seasons, will again be sponsored by Trek in 2012 but will contest the season under the T-Mo Racing banner. New objectives include raising her profile as an all-mountain athlete, placing on the podium in all her planned races and gain points for selection to both the downhill and cross-country Pro Sprint categories at the world championships.
“After 12 years on the World Cup downhill circuit and the achievement of all the goals I set for myself, I felt that the end of 2011 was a perfect opportunity to make a change in direction and pursue some new challenges,” said Moseley in a statement. “I would like to extend my thanks to Trek World Racing and everyone working behind the scenes at Trek for the most successful three years of my career to date. That support has allowed me to attain both a World Championship title and a World Cup title. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Trek as both an athlete and ambassador, as I pursue new ventures.”
Her full calendar will be announced on 13 January at the upcoming London Bike Show. The show, in its second year in 2012, takes place at London’s ExCel exhibition centre from 12-15 January, marking the first major cycling consumer show of the year. BikeRadar readers can still get discounted entry to the show by entering the code ‘radar’ at checkout. Entry with the code costs £14 compared to an on-the-door price of £20.
We will also be debuting our training hub at the show, giving attendees the access to a wide range of cycling-specific physiological assessments and coaching advice. The hub, powered by cycling-specific training experts Koolstof Sports Coaching, is an exclusive area within the show which will put visitors through their paces over two hours in a series of tests and consultations designed to assess their performance and target areas for improvement.
