Whether meant in the sense of a talent, or in the French definition of strong, "Forte" is an apt name for Alex. Her many fortes include being a dedicated teacher who not only instructs in the classroom but brings her students camping and horseback riding. She is also an avid advocate for women's cycling, leading camps and actively promoting participation. Everything Alex does is full of heart and soul, including her road, gravel, cyclocross, and mountain bike racing.
"I'm a secondary school English teacher; former distance runner and triathlete; elite cyclocross racer (Vanderkitten-Entourage Racing); product ambassador (Hammer Nutrition); occasional roadie and wannabe mtb’er; equestrian, snowboarder, hiker, traveler, adventurer, and Northerner. Being outside, riding my bike, traveling, and eating good food are my passions. I enjoy working with youth and adolescents either in a classroom setting or outside doing various activities. Helping people is important to me, and I am always looking for ways to support others when I can.
Earning 2nd place Masters & 1st place Industry at 2018 CX Nats, and 2nd place Masters & 2nd place Industry at 2017 CX Nats, are some of my best recent achievements. I was also an ITU World Triathlon Championship participant, USA Triathlon All-American, and NCAA Collegiate All-American.
This year I'm focusing on the MTB XC Nationals, CX Nats, and possibly CX Masters World Championships"
