Some of you who already have been rode with him, knows how he ride.
Some of you, who already know him, have seen him so pasionate about what he’s doing and have seen how good he is, you have asked why he doesn’t participate at Romaniacs.
I’ll tell you why because he isn’t comfortable to say it: it’s not so easy. It’s not only to desire it and you can go, it takes training, money and support.
For those who haven’t met Alex yet, I promise I’ll try to show a bit of who he is, with the little he has! Meanwhile, my dear love, sorry I have to tell, but I have no choice, ‘cause those who love you have seen your desire in your eyes for so many years now. For Alex, riding enduro is beyond passion, it’s what he’s breathing every day and I’ll tell you why I consider this:
💪🏻despite he was broke he worked his ass off in construction, to have a bike to ride, at 19 years old, even if it was only an old Honda, being paid much more than its value. At the same age he finished high school with “magna cum laude” after having the worst accident in his life(yet not the only ugly experience). He remained blocked between a building and a pillar while riding his bike and trying to avoid a car crush. He came out of this with two broken hands, one broken leg and ruptured muscle at the other leg. He was so messed that docs haven’t noticed his smashed finger at the left hand so he ended up with loosing it. As if all this weren’t enough, before leaving hospital, the therapist told him he might never walk again. That was the moment he decided to start his own recovery and today we all know how he rides! Still, some of you may have noticed the limp he tries to hide.
💪🏻life gave him another challage in 2014 when the waters took him on a flood, while riding enduro with tourists. He managed just to yell "go away" to the riders, then the flood took him. He doesn't know to swim, but he tried all the time to grab anything just to hang somehow and finnaly get out of the furious waters. They've been looking for him in the river for a time, and after they find him, they realise the bike isn't in the area. It was far away down the river, all smashed, blocked in some trees and rocks. Alex was taken to the Inn with sand in his eyes, then the next day he continued his work.
Because of this stories, which are not the only ones, but the only I can tell, I consider he is a strong man with a great desire of living his life and who deserve to have a great moment of enduro riding in his life.
He wants to ride the Silver Class, so he is going to need lots of training for this. As I know, he needs a well-done bike, which lucky for him, he has mechanical skills that helps a lot here, but still needs powerparts and of course some powerwear. For instance he has only injured helmets now.
May we be the golden fish for him and make his wish come true?
Let's see what can we do until 22nd of October to pay the Silver Class for Alex TARA at Vertical Madness.
Later Edit: Thank you, we did it! We raised together the amount for Alex registration to #VerticalMadness Red Bull Romaniacs #17 th Edition.
From now on, we're raising the rest of the money for sustaining him into intensive training and motorcycle upgrades for the rallye. He needs lots of things for this participation, so here we go again!
