Alexander Rapavi

Alex got hooked on road racing in 2010 after placing 12th in a group sprint during the first event he ever entered – a fast circuit race in rural Pennsylvania.  The desire to improve upon that result kept him coming back to the start line weekend after weekend.  Alex particularly enjoys road and circuit races characterized by rolling terrain with some punchy, steep climbs (long, sustained climbs?  Absolutely not.)  His favorite discipline is by far the individual time trial – the race of truth.  Alex has been putting in a lot of TT interval time this year and is shooting for some solid PRs on several short and long courses.
