  • Gwin joins World Champ Moseley, Mulally, and Leov on 2011 roster

(Waterloo, WI & Malaga, Spain) – Trek World Racing welcomed rising DH star Aaron Gwin (USA) at the team’s training camp in Malaga, Spain, recently. The 2010 World Cup 4th place finisher joins a program that features defending World Downhill Champion Tracy Moseley (GRB), American podium threat Neko Mulally (USA), and TWR veteran Justin Leov (NZL).

Resplendent in the team’s new camouflage livery, Gwin spent the week acclimating himself to his team-issued Session 88 and getting acquainted with his new teammates and team staff.

“It’s awesome being here with the whole crew,” Gwin said. “This team is an amazing combination of talent, support, and equipment and I feel great going into this season.” When asked what his goals were for the 2011 season, the newest member of Trek World Racing simply replied “the world.”

Fresh off of her Cape Verde title run, it was during team camp that Moseley received her 2011 custom-painted world championship Session 88, which proudly displays her well-earned rainbow stripes across the seat stays.

“2010 will be hard to top but I’ve got a lot of things I still want to do in this sport,” Moseley stated. “Cape Verde was an amazing start and I’m looking forward to defending the stripes when the World Cup season kicks off.”

Trek World Racing’s downhill riders will race the 2011 season aboard the Trek Session 88.
