"This was a hard race. Very rocky and
dusty in spots. The water crossing was
very different and I had a few issues at times.
First 2 races were very clean runs other than a
front tire going down in the first race. Third
race was hard battling Raymond and Devin. I got
to second but couldn't hold the pace and fell to
third. Sundays race was not bad other then
getting a flat in the first lap. I was able to
hold first till the last lap when I got passed
and finished 2nd." Say's Alex
Alex's Dad Jim has both hands deep into
Alex's program. Jim -" My son is able to
push himself. I try to have the bike right
for him and then it's all about Alex doing his
thing. He never quits, flat tire or not. He
pushes himself the whole time he is on the
Shifter Open: 40min - 1st place - Good race
very clean run till the end when he flattened a
front tire. He had about a 30sec lead till the
end and was able to hold off Devin Borges and
finish in first place.
12-15 Production: 50min - 1st place - Alex
was second out on the start but was able to get
to first before go into the off-road. He had a
very clean run with only a minor issue at one of
the water crossing. He was able to stretch his
lead 1:17 by the finish.
Shifter Open Sport: 40min - 3rd place - This
is a tough race for Alex being the 3rd of the
day. He got pushed off the track at the start
and was last off the start. He set a good pace
and was able to work up to 2nd. He ran out of
steam and slid back to 3rd for the finish. Not
bad he was whooped after that one.
12-15 Production Sport: 50min - 2nd place -
Alex got a good start and was pushing hard to
stay out front. He had a good lead as some of
the other racers had issue early in the race.
Alex had cut a tire on the first lap. He worked
hard to stay out front but in the end a hard
charging Jacob Stevens was able to catch Alex on
the last lap. Alex was ok with 2nd after running
the race on a front flat.
Alex also gets great support from Doug Roll.
Doug has worked very well with Alex. Alex can
give good feedback on what the bike is doing or
not doing. Doug has Alex's Elka stage 4 shocks
dialed in so he can ride as hard as he wants.
Alex said "The harder I hit things the better
the bike works". That is what helps Alex get to
the top box, Doug Roll.
