In the world of BMX racing, Alec Bob is definitely a force to be reckoned with…on and off the track.
While attending Marian University (2015-2019) on an athletic scholarship, he competed on 4 winning Collegiate National Championship teams, ranked #1 in the world in 2017 in the 17-24 Men’s class, and ranked #2 in the world for 2022 in the Men’s elite class at the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships.
His success did not go unnoticed- Alec was awarded the Bob Warnicke scholarship by the National BMX Hall of Fame Committee. An honor only afforded to elite athletes who demonstrate true professionalism, possess a solid potential for a National #1 Championship, and potential Olympic qualification.
Continuing that winning streak in 2017, Alec landed his first Pro career win in his home state of Texas during the Lone Star Nationals to subsequently win his first World Championship at UCI Worlds. To top off a phenomenal rookie year, Alec was awarded 2017 Rookie Pro of the Year by USA BMX, receiving almost one third of the votes submitted by the public.
Currently, Alec resides in Texas and spent 5 years racing under the BMX Elite Men category- the highest professional ranking in BMX racing. Now Alec competes in the 26-35 expert amauteur class where he is ranked 1st in his national age group.
During his downtime, Alec works with the next generation of BMX racers by holding youth clinics. Alec was 9 years old when he first started out in racing, so he understands the kind of mentorship and coaching young racers need to be successful. Discipline, hard work, and motivation are the key elements he strives to impart in his young racers. Alec’s youth clinics are held at BMX race tracks across the US.
Alec Bob is not just an elite athlete, he is a man who believes in pursuing his passions, takes time to build up the next generation, and believes you should always treat others the way you would like to be treated.
When Alec is not racing or mentoring youth, you can find him flexing his creative skills behind the camera, woodworking, and creating various forms of art.
