After huge success in the inaugural year of Enduro World Series (EWS) Tracy plans to defend her World Enduro Championship title in 2014.

After 2 successful years of creating her own program T-MO racing, 2014 will see Tracy join the newly formed Trek Factory Racing (TFR) Enduro team as she competes in the 7 round World Series.

Tracy also plans to take part in select rounds of the UK Gravity Enduro Series and also the UK National XC series as part of her training and preparation for the Enduro World Series.  For a full calendar of events go to www.tracymoseley.com

Alongside Tracy’s racing she will also be slowly developing her coaching career and interest in helping the next generation of young female mountain bikers. Tracy will be continuing the T-MO racing name by supporting some young up and coming racers who will be flying the T-MO Racing flag at domestic XC, DH and Enduro races. More info on this coming soon.

Tracy has been able to combine joining the TFR team and continuing to work with many of the sponsors that have supported Tracy over the last 2 years and is delighted to be able to announce her sponsors for the 2014 season.

Trek Bicycles will continue to supply Tracy with a full selection of bikes to choose from to suit every Enduro race. ‘I am really happy to be staying with Trek for another season and feel in this era of wheel size change, Trek have every possible option to give me the advantage I need on every course. I will be using the Remedy 29 and Slash 650b for enduro and the Supefly for XC racing’.

Tracy will again be continuing with Bontrager for open face helmets, wheels and tyres and some XC components. Tracy has been working closely with Bontrager in their development of tyres for the Enduro market and there are some great new tyres coming out soon.

Also returning are clothing sponsor Endura who will be making all of Tracy’s custom racing kit and also supplying Tracy with all her riding gear needs.

Deity also returns as Tracy’s handlebar and stem sponsor for Enduro racing. The Deity T-MO signature carbon enduro bar that Tracy used for the entire 2013 season is now available to buy worldwide in 2014

Osprey continue as her backpack and luggage sponsor along with Tracy’s longest standing sponsor Oakley providing the very best glasses and goggles.

Fox racing suspension and Shimano are Trek Factory team sponsors that will be providing Tracy with the very best equipment and Tracy will also be using Shimano shoes for racing.

G-Form will also be returning as Tracy’s body armour sponsor and will provide Tracy with great lightweight knee and elbow protection. There is also work on a custom T-MO signature pad for launch later this year.

Two new sponsors joining Tracy’s program for 2014 are CNP and Sweet Protection. CNP will be Tracy’s nutrition sponsor and will be supplying Tracy with a full range of products to help her through her training and the grueling days of Enduro racing.

Sweet Protection will be providing Tracy with their Fixer Full Face Carbon helmet with MIPS for maximum protection when racing the technical enduro stages.

E*thirteen will once again be providing Tracy with chainguides and RRP keeping the mud out of her eyes.

2013 WORLD ENDURO CHAMPION

The final race of the inaugural Enduro World Series have just been and gone. An amazing summer of bike racing has just flown by at what seem like an incredible rate. Seven rounds of the World Series have taken place and to have won 5 of them is more than dreams are made of !

I’ve loved the new challenge and ridden my bike on so many amazing trails I feel almost spoilt ! Most people could only dream of riding the quality of trails we have ridden this season in their lifetime !

To end the season with a final win at Finale Ligure was the icing on the cake !

T-MO Coaching Bike Verbier Women’s week 2013

Last week I spent out in Switzerland with Bike Verbier, putting on my 2nd Women’s coaching and riding week.

We were blessed with amazing weather and a great group of 9 willing students wanting to improved their riding !

We spent time going through all the basics first, looking at body position, braking, front wheel lifts, rear wheel lifts etc and then took these new skills out on to the amazing trails in the area. Everyone improved massively and I really enjoyed seeing the improvement in everyones riding.

Take a look at the photo album on the link below to see what we got up to !

If you like what you see and would like to ride these trails next year, get in touch with Bike Verbier - http://bikeverbier.com/index_bv.php

Enduro racing in Europe

The last few weeks have been pretty busy with 4 races over the last 3 weeks ! Preparation for the first World Enduro was really important for me so I decided to do a couple of races in France on my way out to Italy.

First stop was a midweek race in the north east corner of France to take part in a Bluegrass Enduro tour event in Rombach-Le-Franc. An superb local grass roots event put on by the local bike club with the help of Jerome Clementz and his girlfriend.

There were 6 stages over the day which you could ride to without start times, so it was a pretty leisurely day. All stages were on pretty new freshly cut trails with no practice allowed !! Wicked fun !

There was lunch in the town square during the day and the final stage finished in the square where all the locals had come out to watch ! A really great event and good training on some long descents.

From there I travelled 3 hours south to Metabief. Home to the 1993 World Champs and many French DH races back in the day. It poured with rain all weekend and the stages were pretty much full on DH tracks and they were pretty tough !!

2 days of DHing on my enduro bike…..I survived and took the win, but my body felt it the next day !

From Metabief it was then the long drive down to Punta Ala for the first ever World Enduro ! It was definietly a much anticpiated race and it seemed as though the entire ‘who’s who’ or mountain biking from the last 20yrs was there !! I had a good week running up to the event. I chose to ride my new Trek Remedy 29er bike as there was a lot of pedalling and flowing trails and I loved how the bike felt at speed. I rode the entire 60km course twice before the race to try and learn the stages a little and work out how hard I would need to push on the transitions. We had a mixture of weather during the week but fortunately the sun came out for race day and dried the trails as we rode !

To come away with the win was just amazing. It was sad that Anne Caro crashed out in the first stage as I was really looking forward to racing her again after so many years. But with Anne out I was pushed hard all day by 2 x World DH champion Emmeline Ragot ! It was a big race to win and the perfect start to my season and I am now looking forward to the next round at the end of June.

From Italy it was then home for the 3rd round of the Uk Gravity Enduro Series at Hamsterley. A weekend of sunshine and a really fun short enduro loop was just what I needed to top off a great trip. Another win and now time for a few easy days to recover and recharge for the next trip !

Thanks to Doc Ward for the picture from Hamsterley

UK Gravity Enduro Round 2 – Innerleithen

Another great weekend of racing enduro in the UK. Some tough weather conditions and some freshly cut trails made it into one of the hardest races I have done on an enduro bike ! Some very sketchy sections made for a big drop out rate amongst all categories. Getting your bike and yourself around the 4 hr loop was a challenge itself !! I had a couple of crashes on stage 4 but otherwise managed a fairly incident free race and took the win in the Elite women’s category.
