Tracy Moseley plummets down a mountain track
Tracy Moseley plummets down a mountain track

Introduction

Tracy Moseley is one of Britain's top female downhill mountain bikers.

Her favourite way of spending the weekend is to hurtle headlong down the side of a mountain at frightening speeds.

Tracy had a patchy start to the 2004 season by her own high standards and could only manage to finish 8th in the opening round of the World Cup series in Fort William.

But she hit top form at the next World Cup race in Les Deux Alpes in June finishing first.

This was followed up by third place at Schladming in Austria and third again at Calgary in Canada.

She eventually finished an impressive fourth overall in the World Cup series.

Tracy took time out from her busy racing schedule to tell the Academy what it takes to be a top downhill racer and why anyone can have a go.
