As a part of preparation for the 2011 season current Downhill US National Champion Aaron Gwin has paired up to be coached and trained by racing legend John Tomac.
Already well into the training program, Gwin had this to say about his new Trainer, "I’m super excited to be working with Johnny T. this year. I think the experience he brings with racing and training, is going to be a huge asset to my program. I couldn’t be happier and I look forward to developing this relationship for many years to come!"
Tomac had this to say about training Gwin, "I am really looking forward to helping Aaron in 2011. I believe my racing experience and my training approach will help him rise to another level. I'd really like to see an American back on top of the podium in both World Cup & World Championship Downhill Racing."
Along with training by Tomac, Gwin has switched teams–for 2011 he will be racing under Trek World Racing flags.
