(Waterloo, WI & Malaga, Spain) â€“ Professional mountain bikingâ€™s femme fatale Willow Koerber (USA) was officially assimilated into the Trek World Racing family this week at the teamâ€™s training camp in Malaga, Spain.
2011 will be Willowâ€™s inaugural year with TWR, as she moves over from the US-based Subaru-Trek team for her first season riding a full World Cup schedule. After a stellar 2010, Koerber is looking forward to stepping onto the world stage for the first time in her career.
â€œFocusing completely on the World Cup circuit is something that Iâ€™ve been working towards for a few years now.â€ Koerber said. â€œIâ€™m really looking forward to testing myself against the worldâ€™s best.â€
Another rider taking a huge step forward in his career is Trek World Racingâ€™s 2010 U-23 World Cross Country Champion Mathias FlÃ¼ckiger, as he showcases his talents on the world Elite level.Â
â€œThis is a big year for me,â€ Mathias said. â€œLast year was great but Elite is going to be a big jump. I am ready.â€
