A star is born!

A bio of Winnipeg born, Leah Kirchmann

Leah is not only a professional cyclist from Winnipeg racing for Team Sunweb and the Canadian National team, but she is one of the most humble and sweetest people I have ever met.  How does so much fire and power come from within this frame?

Leah is a high commodity these days from speaking engagements and videos, to media interviews and mentoring other aspiring cyclists.

She is an advocate and ambassador for women’s cycling, and  proof that hard word gets you everywhere (if you are counting the number of countries she has visited the past few years).

The MCA is very proud and honored to have another world champion from Manitoba.

Read more about Leah’s performance pathway (here)

Come and meet Leah this Saturday, November 17th (here)
