GRAVITY / ENDURO
Leah MaunsellMy name is Leah Maunsell and I’m 17 years old. I’ve been riding bikes since forever really but racing mountain bikes for about five years. My dad and brother were mountain biking first. I got my first mountain bike for Christmas when I was 11 and I began to be brought along on all of the adventures! Then, once I began racing XC and winning it, it was hard not to get hooked. And what can I say, I haven’t given up yet!
I raced XC competitively both nationally and also internationally for 3 years before switching over to Enduro. My result highlights would be being multiple-time Irish National Champion in both XC and Enduro and also winning two rounds of the Enduro World Series. It’s been a pretty successful career so far and I hope for it to continue into the future!
- Win the Irish round of the Enduro World Series
- Perform well in the other EWS events
- Win all of the Irish Enduro events
- Have fun!
- Some of you might not know that I am still in second level education with two years left until I head to university.
- I love my iPhone!
- I’ve just got my learner’s driving license and so cornering is still foot out and flat out!
