Whilst attending the hugely successful Temtiwr women’s weekend in North Wales, Tess Agnew managed to grab a chat with the legendary mountain biker, Tracy Moseley. Here are a few MTB top tips from the queen herself…
Words by Tess Agnew
Know your bike
“You’re responsible for developing how you like to ride and what works for you. Just because the bike shop says this is how you should have your handlebars, or where your brakes should be, doesn’t mean it’s right for you and will get the best out of your riding.
“One thing I would stress to everyone is start with tyre pressure. Know what pressure is in your tyres when you ride and know how it feels. Change it up and learn what feels right for you. Same with suspension – it’s very subjective and down to personal preference.
“Two World Cup winning riders will have their bikes set up very differently depending on how they like to ride, for example.”
