The tracking system of the LHCb detector has been re-optimised to reduce the amount of material which particles traverse. The different subcomponents involved in tracking are described. The track reconstruction algorithms are shown to have a good efficiency for finding tracks with the re-optimised setup. The tracking system is capable of providing the excellent spatial and momentum resolutions which are required for the challenging physics program of LHCb.
