About

One of downhill's most promising graduates, Alex has progressed from the junior podium to scoring his first top-10 as an elite in the world cup series.

"I'm just a kid who has so much fun riding bikes, and loves a bit of competition. I love racing, and riding with my friends. That's why I started riding. I also love sushi, haha!"
