Ken Conter off to Leopard Pro Cycling

With great pleasure, Leopard Pro Cycling announces the fourth signing for the 2020 season. The current U23 Luxembourgish National Champion Ken Conter joins from Chambery Cyclisme Formation, the development team of World Tour side AG2R-La Mondiale.

Despite being still 'only' twenty years old, 2020 will be Conter's third season in the U23 ranks. In previous years, Conter already showed his great potential, for example by becoming the Luxembourgish National Road Race Champion twice. In 2017 he claimed the title as a junior, last season he won the U23 race by beating Leopard riders Misch Leyder and Arthur Kluckers. Besides these national titles, Conter rode already some of the toughest junior and U23 races. Especially as a junior, Conter obtained great results: 6th in the GC of the GP Général Patton, 7th in the GC of the OberÖsterreich Juniorenrundfahrt and 18th at the Junior World Championships. As an allround rider who has a strong sprint and who overcomes the uphill slopes pretty well, the 2020 season will offer the 20-year-old plenty of opportunities to achieve good results.

Ken Conter: "2020 should be a big year for me. I learned a lot in the last one and a half season in France and with all my positive and negative experiences, I am now ready to perform and strive for great results together with my new teammates. By joining Leopard Pro Cycling, I join a great team with a very strong organization. I also think that there will be a good ambiance with motivated people. Therefore I am very much looking forward to the start of the season."

Markus Zingen, Team Manager: "By signing Ken, we join forces with yet another strong, talented rider from Luxembourg. In contrary to our other recent signings, Ken brings already quite a bit of experience to the team, as 2020 will be his third year in the U23 ranks. We hope that Ken will build on this and that we can therefore lookout to strong performances in the new season."
