Three-time Enduro World Series champion, Tracy Moseley, is relishing retirement after an illustrious racing career, continuing her passion for two wheels as the new co-ordinator of the European Continental Enduro Series. Determined to help the sport continue to grow, Moseley is currently striking the perfect balance between organising and enjoying both professional and personal lives – herself, husband James and baby Toby all heading to Canazei together for the first round of the European series.
Swapping the trails for the clipboard
From dominating the Enduro World Series to coordinating the European Continental Series, Moseley has lost no love for two-wheeled, dirt-munching machines. In an interview with Pinkbike, she describes just what her new position will entail.
“Chris Ball [EWS Director] wanted someone who’s got experience with the EWS to be present at all 4 races to ensure there is continuity between events as they are being run by different organisations, with the aim being if someone came and did all 4 races they would see the similarities between them that define the series.”
Moseley is the perfect ambassador for such a role, a massive name in not only the discipline of enduro, but throughout the wider cycling world. The position gives Moseley a chance to stay involved in the sport she loves, only without the pressure of racing. No one knows the sport, its riders, officials and the trails quite like Tracy Moseley, herself stating, “I’ve been around the series long enough to know a lot about how they like to run it, and how to help make that happen.”
Europe within the wider World Series
Aiming to establish a new brand of racing within the wider World Series, Moseley and Chris Ball plan to market the events towards development teams, giving budding talent the chance to ride with some of the world’s greatest. The opportunity to race at high level events are invaluable in the quest to grab vital ranking points needed to gain entry into the World Series. It also gives local fans a chance to come and watch a thrilling spectacle on their own doorsteps, rather than being limited to the few European events on the World Series calendar.
Moseley thinks there is enough demand for a new enduro series and, in her own words, cannot wait “to see who takes it on board and is serious about becoming the first European Enduro Champion.”
Trek is the name, enduro is the game
Alongside the responsibilities her new role holds, Moseley continues to rock Trek’s enduro range as one of their most high-profile ambassadors. Supporting the 3-time Series champ throughout her racing career, and now into retirement,Trek have supplied Moseley with some of the most stunning bikes over the years. Here are some of the more recent models to grace the world stage:
Trek’s Slash model is built entirely with enduro in mind, Fox Performance suspension to dampen the most aggressive of bumps, and a OCLV Carbon frame to stay light when powering up the hills. The bike has it all – able to attack every corner with its compact but compliant frame as well as deal with light downhill runs thanks to its revolutionary RE:aktiv Thru Shaft dampener, one of the most responsive shocks available on the market today.
The Trek Remedy model range offers something for everyone, no matter the budget or tech requirement. The stout frame is perfectly optimised for enduro riding and hammering the more technical trails, paired with RockShox suspension to eat up the nastiest of bumps.
