Alex is very fortunate to reside in Bentonville, AR, one of the fastest-growing mountain bike towns in the US. He loves Mountain Biking but bikepacking and gravel adventures are also in his wheelhouse. His favorite moments instructing are when a technique clicks in someone’s head and suddenly their confidence in riding blossoms!

How did you get into Mountain Biking?
Working at a local REI-type store in high school and they hosted an employee campout where I got to ride a real mountain bike on real singletrack for the first time. Soon as I had the money I bought my first Mountain Bike and haven’t stopped having fun since.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
The region around Bentonville is pretty great for all kinds of outdoor fun, close to the coast and the Rockies, and most importantly its where my family lives.
