Alex has been involved in bike racing since the mid-eighties. He raced around the country for several years, coached the University of Colorado Cycling team for five years and has worked in shops as a sales person and mechanic since his first bike gig in 1987. During that time he has seen a lot of things in the bike industry change and has seen many fads come and go. With the purchase of Missoula Bicycle Works, he realized a long time goal of owning a bike shop. He has great stories to tell about racing back in the day and it seems like as the years go by the stories become a bit grander. Lately, you can find him ripping up the trails while wearing baggies *gasp* on his Orbea Rallon, slicing up the roads on his Cannondale SuperSix or mixing it up on dirt/gravel/road on his Cannondale SuperX. Alex is so excited to challenge himself with learning Salsa for Dancing With The Missoula Stars 2017 and give back to the dance community and the Downtown Dance Collective!
