Frenchwoman Léona Pierrini is still fairly new to the racing scene, but she already has a junior World Cup title, junior national titles and top 15 World Cup results to her credit. She is now ready to challenge for the top 10 in the elite category. Ben Zwar also enjoyed great success as a junior and is steadily climbing the ranks in the elite category, finishing the last round of the 2022 season just behind the top-20.

Jure Žabjek is a familiar face with the Unior/Sinter jersey and one of the most successful Slovenian riders of all time. Not only will he share his experience and wisdom, but he wants to set the best times in the biggest events of the season. The fourth rider on the DH team is XNUMX-year-old Stan Nisbet from Scotland; Stan showed amazing speed and style and thus attracted the attention of the international scene. We are super happy to have such talent on the team and will be supporting him in the iXS EDC races, while the rest of the DH riders will focus on the new UCI MTB World Series events.

The team continues to support Jaka Remec and Boris Režabek, and thus will have a strong presence in the world of BMX freestyle and MTB slopestyle.

Yure: “I'm excited to be back on the Trek bikes where I started my racing career. And super happy to have international riders in the team. Feeling good on the bike and plenty of time to build up speed until the first big races".

Stan: “The goal this year is to gain racing experience in Europe and participate in some national races at home. I am really excited and grateful to be part of a team that is so supportive and where I can learn and develop my riding".

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
