Léona Pierrini

AGE: 20


How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
I have been passionate about mountain biking since I was little. I am also determined, stubborn and a bit crazy… but I also like my peace and naps.

Your goal for this season?
My goal is to have as much fun as possible, but also to be qualify for the World Cup finals.

Your main inspirations?
I don’t really have a one single inspiration, I always look at all the riders, but if I had to say names I would obviously say Loris Vergier and Loic Bruni, my role models when I started racing.

Growing up, who did you most like to emulate on your riding?
Same names as in the previous question…

If you could transfer your riding skills to any other sport, what would it be?
I would love to skateboard, but after several attempts I realized skateboarding definitely does not want me.

Favorite post-race snack?
Cookiiies of course

Favorite race?
Les Gets 2022! Because of the track and especially because of the atmosphere!

Favorite place to ride?
My favorite track for training is Mandelieu, however my best race track is Les Gets.
