One Suspension Platform, Two World Championships
Trek’s ABP Carries Trek World Racing to the Top of the World
(Waterloo, WI) – Stripes are back in style at Trek this fall. This past weekend the podium at the World Mountain Bike Championships in Mont Sainte Anne, Quebec looked like a roll call for Trek riders the world-over. Kicking things off was the U23 Cross-Country World Championship won by Trek World Racing’s Mathias Flückiger. The 21 year-old raced his ABP (Active Braking Pivot) suspension-equipped Trek Top Fuel to the gold medal, crossing the finish line a comfortable 30 seconds ahead of the competition.
Not to be outdone by her young teammate, Tracy Moseley followed two days later with the defining win of her career in the Elite Women’s Downhill World Championship, crushing the field by 7 seconds on her ABP- equipped Session. Moseley said about her victory, “The 2011 Trek Session helped me get the rainbow stripes I’ve been wanting for years. It feels amazing to win!”
The team missed out on a third World Championship by the narrowest of margins as Trek World Racing’s Neko Mulally, finished just .06 off the pace in the Men’s Junior Downhill. The Trek Session-riding Mulally remarked about the race, “the Session was working flawlessly at Mont Sainte Anne. It’s an incredible machine. On a track where carrying speed was essential, my bike made the track much easier.”
To celebrate Trek World Racing’s world dominance, Trek will be distributing commemorative posters exclusively to the first 2500 riders who request one. All you have to do is ask! Just visit here and tell us where to send it.
