Tristan // LBCC Ambassador 2021

Tristan // LBCC Ambassador 2021
Greetings all!
My name is Tristan, and I’m super excited to address you guys as an Ambassador for Le!
Like most of us, I’ve started cycling extremely young and got hooked on mountain biking in the forest behind our house! My mom, aka biggest supporter, got me in a local mountain bike team with older kids, and to be honest, it did not last long until I dropped after a big crash that scared me off the sport.
Flash forward 16 years later, after I started a pretty serious office job and gain around 30 pounds sitting at my desk all day, I decided to replace my bus card with a bike.
I bought a simple fixed gear and got immediately hooked! All the sensations a bicycle brings that I loved as a kid were coming back to me! The freedom to explore wherever, whenever, the wind on your skin, the centrifugal force in a tight corner, the satisfaction of spending your energy the right way made me feel like a kid again!
But like with everything that attracts me, it did not take long until I got competitive! Pursuing KOMs, constantly improving my time on the local hill, sprinting against my friends for no good reason and eventually, joining a local race team!
At the end of the day, I’m proud to represent Le, who always reminds me that the most important thing is to have fun, enjoy the good company and make sure that the ice cream stop is the best part of the ride!
