Colombian rider Leonardo Páez Léon represents Giant in the world of marathon mountain bike racing, and he does it in style wearing the world champion's rainbow striped jersey. Known to most as Leo Páez, the 38-year-old has won the elite men's race at the UCI MTB Marathon World Championships the past two years. In 2019 he conquered a grueling 94km alpine course in Grächen, Switzerland on his Anthem Advanced Pro 29, and in 2020 he won in Sakarya, Turkey on his XtC Advanced SL 29 hardtail.
