Our personal Christmas present has arrived in the form of a signing. The Swiss Lucien Leiser is now an official Monty rider for 2016.
At only 21 years old, Lucien has forcefully burst into the world trial ranking (UCI) Elite 20” category, reaching 3rd place.
Despite starting the season with not very satisfactory results, at third and second place in the Swiss championship, his general experience in 2015 has been very positive.
To highlight one particular performance, we would have to choose his role in the World Cup at the beginning of September in Andorra, where Leiser achieved a more than commendable second position with Monty M5. Also noteworthy was his third position in the fourth test of the World Cup which took place in Amberes, Belgium, at the end of September.
So, Leiser’s star is definitely rising and he doesn’t leave us with any doubt that he will be a key piece in the future of the team, which already includes Ion Areitio, Vasek Kolar and Manon Basseville. He appears confident and hopes to repeat and improve his 2015 results.
Don’t forget that you can follow Lucien’s daily activities through his social media:
