There have been all kinds of rumors, spy photos, and a much hyped practice run, but now it’s official. Trek has been working on, and now Gwin has won on a new carbon fiber prototype Trek Session. Gwin’s latest win is part of a 3 win streak, out of only 4 starts. Even though this was Gwin’s first race aboard the carbon Session, it didn’t seem to hinder him as he crushed the course at Mont Sainte Anne after a wet start to the weekend.
“It’s hardly a secret that we’ve been working on a new bike with Aaron,” said Michael Browne, Trek’s Global Mountain Bike Brand Manager. “He’s been on the bike a few times and obviously felt confident enough after a few runs to race it. It’s exciting to watch this incredible season unfold along with the development of a new racing machine.”
The prototype carbon Session featured the number 9.9 on the head tube, likely meaning it will adhere to a similar naming structure as Trek’s other carbon mountain bikes with 9.9 being the top end carbon model. The only other stand out feature easily visible from the picture is the inclusion of Carbon Armor molded to the downtube. More when we have it.
Not to be left out, Tracy Moseley also won at Mont Sainte Anne aboard her team issue Session, which has recently been reported stolen! Keep an eye out for a TWR Trek Session, and maybe a load of Fox Racing Shox parts as well. Thieves suck.
