At home, 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 the man who was one of Pablo’s teammates in the EOLO-KOMETA youth team in 2022. “My father competed, he even competed with the Iberdrola team, but he ended up quitting because of work”. The young Pablo, however, started swimming before cycling: “I didn’t like it, it bored me a bit, it didn’t call 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 was one of the names of the year in the 2022 season with his performances and the endorsement of his bronze medal in the road race at the Spanish Championships in Valladolid. In 2023 he was a regular in the Spanish Cup teams and showed an interesting progression compared to the beginning of the season: “To do mountain passes we either go to the area of Aldeanueva del Camino, where we have family, or we go down to the Sierra de Montánchez. But I like the shorter climbs, like the 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 home town.
