Moseley kicks of great day for home riders

By Rob Jones in Fort William

Tracy Moseley was the first of two British winners on 'Downhill Sunday' of the final rouond of the 2005 mountain bike World Cup. Moseley set teh fastest time in seeding and therefore was last rider down the hill.

Angelika Hohenwarter (Austria) set the early fast time of 5:46.10, which stood up for 10 riders before Emma Guy (Great Britain) knocked a slim two-hundredths of a second off. After that, the lead was changing almost every rider. Kathy Pruitt (Luna), fifth from last, put in a strong time at 5:02.50, but two riders later the new Junior world champion, Rachel Atherton (Great Britain), came through over a second and a half faster. Jonnier couldn't beat Atherton's time, so it was down to Moseley, who became the only woman to crack the five minute barrier, with a time of 4:59.97, despite a crash.

"I had a good semi run; I tried to be smooth, pick good lines and not go too hard at the top because it is such a long course." explained Moseley. "It started to rain just as I was beginning my final, and I slid out on the rocks at the top, so I backed off a bit. I guess that made it pretty close, but it was enough to win."
