For nearly 25 years, England's Tracy Moseley has been riding a mountain bike better than anyone else.
Tracy's legendary mountain biking career started by tagging along with her big brother, Ed, who was a World Cup DH racer in the early 2000s. This young rider from the Malvern Hills was destined for a bright future as she displayed unparalleled skill and flair for riding bikes—fast!
Since 2010, Tracy has won dozens of trophies spanning the globe. To sustain such a career through all the changes that DH has seen in that period of time is incredible. Few riders can compare to the great achievements and career longevity that she has had and continues to have. Being able to adapt has been one of Tracy's defining attributes in a sport where so many riders grab 5 minutes of glory before quietly fading from the limelight.
Now Tracy’s focus is beginning to shift as she becomes a voice for woman around the world. She pushes the rise of women in MTB by encouraging young girls and women of all ages to get on a bike, have fun, and challenge themselves.
Filming with Tracy in the Tweed Valley in Scotland was the perfect place to give a nod to the past as well as a glimpse into the future. Tracy has embraced the change and we have no doubt that she’ll be around for some time to come.
"Maintaining a long career, I think, is quite hard in this sport. Where often you're pushing the limits and having crashes frequently. Having good protection and me working with G-form the last few years has been real key to making sure you always take those precautions and that you are protected when you go out and ride."
G-Form is honored to join Tracy Moseley on her journey.
