Alex's main passion in life is dirt jumping. It's cool to see him navigate the challenges that he faces, the primary one being that there are almost no dirt jumps, and very few dirt jumpers, in Montana. And all of the competitions are far away, in Canada and Colorado. Nonetheless, he soldiers on and rides hard every day. I tell him, "Everyone faces challenges, and if it isn't early on, it's later; adversity is universal. So if you can't figure out how to get past this obstacle, it wasn't meant to be." He's determined to figure it out.
