Tell us about yourself.
My name is Scotti Lechuga, and I live in Little Rock, Arkansas. I’ve been cycling professionally for about seven years, and I’m a mom of twin boys. In 2010 my husband Ernie and I founded our coaching business, Leborne Coaching, and in addition to racing ourselves, we enjoy working with endurance athletes of various disciplines. In my spare time, I freelance write for cycling industry brands, and I really enjoy music and the outdoors. And chocolate
What does brand ambassadorship mean to you?
I believe in authentic connections, so I seek out partnerships with brands that I not only want to use and represent myself, but also get excited to share with my friends and family. Representing Tree of Life Seeds comes naturally for me, because I believe in the products.
Please tell us about your Pro Cycling career.
I did things backwards from most and had my kids BEFORE turning pro! When my boys were only toddlers, I received my first professional contract and began racing internationally. I’ve competed in some of the world’s toughest road stage races including the Giro d’Italia, the women’s version of the Tour de France, and AMGEN Tour of California. In 2019 I stepped away from the road to pursue ultra (or endurance) style racing. Now, I just ride for a lot longer and with a lot less sleep! My next race in 2020 is Atlas Mountain Race in Morocco.
