At Pablo Leno’s home (12 January 2006), cycling also had its share of protagonism. His father, Pablo, also enjoyed his competitive experiences and even shared races with the late Manuel Sanroma, uncle of one of Pablo’s new teammates in the youth EOLO-KOMETA. “My father competed, he even competed with the Iberdrola team, but ended up quitting because of work”. The young Pablo, however, started swimming before cycling: “I didn’t really like it, it bored me a bit, it didn’t call to me and I ended up quitting. As my father was still cycling, I started to go out with him on the mountain bike. Eventually I joined Cáceres Bike, where I stayed until I moved up to cadets with HyD Pinturas-Carbajosa Empresarial de Salamanca. In Cáceres I mostly did mountain biking, until I was a second year junior or so I didn’t have a road bike”. Leno has been one of the names of the year with his performances and his bronze medal at the Spanish Championships. “To do mountain passes we either go to the Aldeanueva del Camino area, where we have family, or we go down to the Sierra de Montánchez. But I prefer the shorter climbs, like the steep climb in Sierra de Fuentes, which we call the Piccola, with 300 metres with ramps of 15% and 20%, and which is very close to my usual training area, in the direction of Trujillo”.
