The final round of the Pro Gravity Tour series in Whiteface, New York was domintated by Trek World Racing.

In the pro men’s event, the team went 1-2-3 while recently crowned World Champion Tracy Moseley topped the small Pro Women’s field.

Moseley was riding in her first race wearing the rainbow striped jersey she won recently at the mountain bike world championships in Mont Saint Anne, Quebec.

After qualifying first, third and fourth, with Justin Leov fastest at 7m 52.95secs on the long course, all three Trek World Racing members found another 5 to 7 seconds for the final, to sweep the podium, with Leov first, followed by Andrew Neethling and Neko Mulally.

“It was a pretty fun race on a long and challenging DH course,” Moseley said. “It feels good to end the season with a win, especially in my first race wearing the rainbow stripes.”

Leov said he was disappointed with his crash at worlds.

“But today cemented the fact that I had figured things out and I rode strongly and aggressively, and was so pleased with my run,” he said.

Moseley won the overall Pro GRT series for 2010, but at the time of going to print, the official men’s overall series had not been published but will come down to Bryn Atkinson, Neethling and Leov.

1. Justin Leov (Trek World Racing) 7m 44.39secs 2. Andrew Neethling (Trek World Racing) 7m 55.51secs 3. Neko Mulally (Trek World Racing) 8m 03.35secs
