Tracy Moseley Women's Downhill MTB World Champion
Posted September 5 2010
After fifteen years of trying, Tracy Moseley has captured her first ever World Championship at Mont Sainte Anne.
In an exclusive pre-race interview, Moseley commented how much it would mean to win the rainbow jersey and in time honoured fashion, took the win by a huge margin.
Taking to the track with three French riders still to race, Moseley's time smashed the previous fastest of Mio Suemasa by 12.79 seconds, but with the defending World Champion Emmeline Ragot, and Sabrina Jonnier still to ride, Moseley could only look at the ground during a tense waiting game.
But neither Sabrina Jonnier, Emmeline Ragot or Floriane Pugin could come close to Moseley as the rain continued to fall.
Jonnier was closest, 7.50 seconds down, but in short it was a total destruction of the field by Tracy Moseley, who can now relax knowing her final career ambition is realised.
Rachel Atherton, on her return to the World Championships could only manage seventh after a huge over the bars crash, and now returns home for surgery on her injured shoulder.
