Alexis has been racing on the professional cross-country mountain bike circuit for eight years. She found her true passion for mountain bike racing in college her junior year when she joined the Colorado Mesa University Mountain Bike Team.

Some of her career highlights include winning a Pro Cross-Country Tour (ProXCT) race, numerous podiums at the Epic Ride Series events and representing the USA at the World Championships twice. She is also the women's record holder for the White Rim Trail FKT, the 100mile route that's become the fiercest proving grounds for US cyclists since travel and racing became more restricted. She gives back to her community through her involvement in youth programs such as Grand Valley Youth Cycling team, assistant coaching the women’s mtb team at CMU, putting on clinics, and speaking at events.

Alexis will be racing on the htSQD, the team partnership between Rapha and Santa Cruz with support from SRAM/RockShox. The team have a varied calendar that will see them contesting traditional XCO events as well as domestic epic marathon events, and some personal challenges along the way.
