Alex Kirsch first rode as a stagiaire for Trek-Segafredo in 2014 and signed his first WorldTour contract with the team in 2019. One of the taller riders in the pro peloton at 1.94 meters (6 feet,4 inches), there's little surprise he prefers the cobbles where big, powerful riders thrive. Alex claims he's not the type of rider who will win Flanders but is someone always at the front making an impact, and he has been a perfect fit for Trek-Segafredo's Classics team. His large engine and profile, coupled with an ability to find positioning in times of chaos, make Alex arguably one of the best lead-outs in the WorldTour.
