“I really believe in what EF fosters. It is absolutely essential that we actively cultivate a knowledge and understanding of cultures beyond our own in order to be good global citizens.”

Alex has spent his entire career in argyle, save a single year that team boss Jonathan Vaughters farmed him out to a French squad to “toughen him up a bit”. His 14th season in argyle may be the longest one rider has spent with a single squad. The year marks the continuation of a dream realized for Alex, who won the US national road title last spring. In his spare time, you can find the Colorado native roaming the American West, either in his old pickup truck or on his bike, with his wife Jess and his dog Reina.
