Dirt Hub: Do you have a Pre-Race Playlist you listen too, and if so name a couple of tracks that are on it?
Alex: No I don’t. I’ve never been a big music guy on race day, I actually enjoy some peace and quiet before the start of a race.
DH: When was the last time you cried?
Alex: When my Dad Passed away. I found that hard.
DH: What is your favourite inspirational quote?
Alex: It’s doesn’t matter how hard you punch, it’s how hard you can get punched and keep moving forward! Rocky !!!
DH: Do you have any weird suspicions or pre-race rituals?
Alex: Ummmm, I hate wearing new helmets. I always like to scratch and drop it before I wear it.
DH: What drives you most to get up in the morning and go training?
Alex: Just trying to better yourself. I strive for perfection and that’s what I go after when I train and rode.
DH: If you didn’t race what sport would you play/take part in?
Alex: I’d probably do downhill mountain biking.
DH: What is your biggest?
Alex: Snakes, love watching them on TV bit of I saw one in real life I’d shit myself.
DH: Who is your biggest sporting idol and why?
Alex: Lance Armstrong. Controversial I know, but you have to admire his desire and commitment to not only win but to destroy everyone he raced against At all costs. Positive for drugs or not, winning 7 TDF is some going, especially after having cancer.
DH: Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Alex: Good question, I’d love to expand my training schools and also work with some top riders who have the same vision as me.
DH: What is your all-time favourite movie?
DH: Who has had the biggest impact on your career?
Alex: My Dad, he was right with me all the way. I probably only truly realised how much once he had left us, but he supported me in so many ways.
DH: What is your philosophy on life?
Alex: Do what you enjoy and live in the fast lane!!
