If there's one thing you should know about triathlete Alex Yee, it's that he's fast. Really, really fast. And he broke out in a big way in 2021, winning a World Triathlon Championship Series race in Leeds, and qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics where he won gold in the mixed relay and silver in the men's triathlon. Alex's hometown is London. As an eight-year-old, he completed his first triathlon south of the city in Crystal Palace. He loves each of the three legs of a triathlon for different reasons. While on the bike, he enjoys the technical side of cycling, taking lines well, and, of course, going fast.
What's your secret talanet that no ones knows about?
I used to Yo-yo pretty well, I even had an embarrassing YouTube video but thankfully it has been deleted.
If you could borrow one cycling aptitude from any of your Trek teammates what would it be?
I’d borrow Giulio Ciccone's yellow jersey legs!
