My name is Léna Buscaglia, I am 37 years old, and I live in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains in Haute-Savoie. I work as a general practitioner.

I enjoy traveling, having new experiences, learning new things, and stepping out of my comfort zone to push my limits. However, I also appreciate simple and friendly moments with friends or family.

After envying motorcyclists on my way to work at Col des Aravis, I decided to get my motorcycle license in 2018. Although I had thought about it before, it had slipped my mind. I have no regrets about taking the plunge!

The sense of freedom during each ride and road trip is incredible. My first motorcycle is a Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, chosen on impulse without a test ride.

Our first adventure together was a solo road trip six months after obtaining my motorcycle license. I started from Megève, heading to Hyères for scuba diving via the Grandes Alpes Route. With my tent, saddlebags, and diving suit, I tackled the mountain passes for six days, initially appearing fragile and uncertain. It was the beginning of summer, the season of storms, and I discovered the joys of adventure with both good and challenging surprises, moments that will stay etched in my memory.

Regarding my riding skills, I believe I made significant progress during this journey. Alone with my motorcycle, I had to rely on myself with no one to lean on!

The end of the season included a motorbike road trip in the Verdon Gorges, rides on the surrounding mountain roads, and a day of discovering flat track riding.

I waited for the next season to venture into off-road riding, exploring nearby paths. I attended an enduro pilot training session in Vif near Grenoble and a trail riding workshop in off-road with Jean-Pierre Goy.

I diversified my off-road experiences at home when I purchased a Yamaha 450 WRF, gradually gaining confidence and improving my technique. In the summer of 2021, I went to the Bardenas Desert in Spain with my partner, taking off-road routes as much as possible and following a section of the Trans Euro Trail (TET) on the way back. It was there that I experienced my first major fall, fortunately without consequences for me or my motorcycle.

At the end of the summer of 2021, I participated in an event celebrating female motorcyclists, “Heroines and Gasoline,” and rediscovered the roads of the Auvergne volcanoes.

In October 2022, I took part in my first Moroccan rally, the Raid Passion Désert. Experiencing the pleasures and challenges of such an adventure, I enthusiastically signed up for this year’s edition.

To train and improve, I try to ride as much as possible and provide medical assistance with the AMIS enduro association, the “guardian angels” of enduro races. It’s challenging for me, as I clearly don’t yet have the right level to be comfortable on these demanding trails. Still, it helps me progress!

I am thrilled to combine my work and passion. I didn’t hesitate for a second when I had the opportunity to provide medical assistance at the Trek Dial Dakar last February.

I have many projects in mind, and now it’s a matter of seeing which ones will come to fruition. Currently, I focus on my preparation and continue to explore the world of enduro and rally/raid.
