Team mates Brook MacDonald and Neko Mulally made it a 1-2 on the podium for the 4th round of the Pro Gravity Tour at Mountain Creek, New Jersey. After qualifying fastest the day before, Neko had to settle for the backseat on race day, but was only 0.83sec behind his World Cup winning training partner. Brook didn't qualify as strongly but put in a great run on Sunday race day.
Last year Neko raced and won in Duryea, a local race which he was very proud to support and to help elevate in the national media. This year he went a step further by bringing his new team-mate and World Cup race winner, Brook MacDonald to the event.
Today Trek World Racing is releasing the first episode of its new video series, entitled TREK WORLD RACING STORIES.
All three Trek World Racing riders finished in the top 12 in a classy field that many felt made this event feel like a mini World Cup. Ironically named the Underworld Cup, the race in Port Angeles is fast becoming the best pre-World Cup season event in North America for the top riders to test their speed and equipment on a track that's lined with spectators. Rain on Saturday packed the dust down and made for ideal racing conditions.
With nearly all of the top 10 riders in the Sea Otter Downhill riding anything but a standard 26 inch wheel downhill rig on the notoriously short and flat course, Neko and his team-mates all ran their 26 inch Trek Session 9.9 Downhill bikes and had excellent runs despite some setbacks for Brook and Greg
One of our favorite pre-season projects is filming with our riders to update their Video Profiles on the team website. Today we've updated all five riders' profiles and they can be found in the Rider pages on both the Downhill and Enduro areas of the Trek World Racing website. Just click on the red Video Profile tab and the movie will start.
All five Trek World Racing riders have recently returned home from a successful team camp in Santa Barbara, California, where a number of things were achieved. Apart from some solid testing and settling in the new team members, team photographer Matt DeLorme captured some great images.
Trek World Racing's new signing Brook MacDonald took his Trek Session 9.9 to a first ever Elite National Title on the Rotorua course earlier today. The former Junior World Champion and World No.5 has had a busy couple of weeks both preparing for this event, racing in Hunua and filming in Queenstown for Anthill Production's new project.
Trek World Racing is excited to announce its much anticipated line-up for the 2013 race season, a roster which sees a mixture of race winners, World Cup podium riders as well as up-and-coming talent. All the riders selected for the program have the same philosophy and clearly have youth, talent and massive potential as key ingredients.
