Leopard Pro Cycling signs Louis Coqueret

The start of the 2021 season is only a few days away. A new season means new riders and Louis Coqueret is the first reinforcement for Leopard Pro Cycling.

Louis Coqueret is a 19-year-old rider from the French Ardennes. Louis is a complete rider who prefers stage races and difficult hilly races, next to the time trial, a discpline that is close to his heart. As a junior, Louis impressed as part of the Van Rysel-AG2R La Mondiale team, where he rode two seasons. Some of his most notable results are 7th at the GP Bob Jungels, 9th at La Classique des Alpes Juniors, 4th and a stage win at the Ain Bugey Valromey Tour, 9th at Aubel-Thimister-Stavelot, 5th at the French ITT Championships and 9th at the Chrono des Nations. All results that Louis was unfortunately not really able to follow up on because of the shortened 2020 season. However, as a first year U23 rider Louis still was able to win two regional races in Spain and France and the regional Time Trial and Road Championships. Besides this, Louis also rode a strong U23 French Time Trial Championships, as he finished in sixth position. In 2021 Louis will start his second year in the U23 ranks and his first one in the Leopard Pro Cycling outfit.

Louis Coqueret

"In 2021, I want to discover racing at a higher level and gain as much experience as possible by taking the start in major races with Leopard Pro Cycling. I want to continue to progress as a cyclist without setting myself any particular goals. I just want to help my new team and teammates. Leopard Pro Cycling is a very recognized team and is one of the best Continental teams out there. The team has a very good structure, organization and staff and the team has brought many riders up to the highest level. All in all, I am happy to become a part of the team and I can't wait to start the season and ride with my new teammates."

"By signing Louis, we have strengthened our 2021 team with a very versatile rider. We have been following him for quite a while now, especially since he rode a very strong 2019 season. I am sure he would have made another step this year, but the circumstances were not there to make this happen. In 2021, Louis will for sure show his capabilities in our team and we are all looking forward to obtain great results together as a team."
