Trek World Racing, American downhill phenomenon Aaron Gwin, and Trek Bicycle have extended their highly successful racing partnership for another three years. The agreement will ensure that the back-to-back World Cup champion will pilot his carbon fiber Trek Session 9.9 through 2015 as he continues to raise the bar at the highest level of competition. From World Championships to World Cup overall victories, Trek World Racing has built a powerful program for both cross-country and downhill riders in its short history.

“I’m honored to continue my relationship with Trek Bicycles, and the Trek World Racing program,” said Aaron Gwin. “Their support has been a key part of my success over the last 2 years, and they’ve given me all the tools I need to reach my goals. I'm excited for the years ahead, and looking forward to further developing the Trek brand.”
