Ashleigh Pittaway predominantly featured on the Intercontinental Cup circuit in the 2019/20 season while she completed her A Level studies at Monkton Coombe School near Bath.

Ashleigh recorded a season's best finish of fourth in December's race in Winterberg and again in her final race of the season in PyeongChang at the start of February. She was 14th in her one World Cup appearance last season - again in Winterberg - in January 2020.

The 2018/19 season saw Ashleigh win a total of six medals, including Junior World Championship bronze in Konigssee.

Prior to shining in the U23 showpiece in Germany in February 2019, Ashleigh took overall ICC silver after ending her ICC season with back-to-back gold and silver medals in Lake Placid.

She had previously won Europa Cup (EC) silver and bronze in Konigssee in December 2018 and added North American Cup gold in Calgary a month later.

Ashleigh featured in the final two World Cup races of the 2018/19 season as she finished ninth in Lake Placid and 16th in Calgary. She made her Senior World Championship bow as an 18-year-old in March 2019, placing 16th in Whistler.

Ashleigh was crowned Youth Olympic Champion in February 2016 after taking gold in Lillehammer. Following a sensational season in which she won all four of her Youth Olympic qualification races, Ashleigh picked up the ultimate youth honour after producing two superb runs in Norway to beat her nearest rival by almost a second.

A runner up in the 2016 SportsAid One to Watch Award, she enjoyed a superb entrance to the adult circuit as she won EC bronze in Konigssee at just 15 years of age in January 2016 and she finished in 15th place in her first World Cup event at the same track in the final race of the 2015/16 season.
