Four years ago, Alex Kirsch rode as a stagiaire for Trek-Segafredo, and since then has made significant progress to join the team beginning in 2019. The turning point came in his hometown race, the Tour of Luxembourg in 2016, when he finished in third place overall just behind Philippe Gilbert. It gave him the confidence he needed, and his aggressiveness saw him off the front in Gent-Wevelgem and attacking in the Tour of Flanders in 2018. Alex, 26,  claims he’s not the type of rider who will win Flanders, but someone who is always up there making an impact - a perfect fit for Trek-Segafredo’s classics team.
