Leonni Tighe

  • Three time ‘Girls UK National Motocross’ Champion
  • Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing

Growing up with a dad who competed in motocross at amateur level, Leonni had always loved the sport and has been riding since the age of 5.

In 2009, she gained recognition after coming third the UK Auto Dominator; a competition featuring the best male and female young riders.

Since then, Leonni has become the Girl’s UK Champion three times and has represented Great Britain in the Female European Championship; becoming one of the youngest competitors to take part in the INBA Ladies Championship in the process.

Whilst competing in motocross, Leonni’s family encouraged her to study a course at Hopwood Hall College as an alternative to her motocross career..

“I had a really good time studying at Hopwood Hall. They worked with me so that I could balance my motocross career with my studies and the people I met were great.

“My dad pushed me to study as he has always emphasised the importance of education. The support from him and the rest of my family is the reason I am where I am today. I always have the best and biggest following in the race paddock!”
