Alex loves motocross so the team has taken inspiration from Ronnie Mac for this one-off World Championship build. Monkeys Sauce has incorporated a U.S flag design with doughnuts on the mainframe with slick matching graphics on the Crank Brothers Synthesis carbon wheels. The Brigade Team sponsors have teamed up with the build. The V10 runs on SR Suntour suspension, Production Privée bars and stem, HXR chainset, Vee Tire Co. tyres while Kenny's custom division putting together this really special riding kit.
The wrap offers a really custom finish and looks as good as a custom paint job, only it takes much less time to complete, is easy to change and adds some protection to the carbon frame. Just seen in the background is a new prototype tire from Vee Tire Co. A fast-rolling design made of Vee's super tacky Top 40 rubber compound.
Alex is a fairly lightweight rider and generally runs his SR Suntour forks at 65-67psi depending on the number of volume spacers he's running. Braking brakes pack a powerful punch, hardly surprising as the company is famous for producing high-end motorcycle braking systems.
Clothing sponsor, Kenny is always on hand with custom-designed riding kit to match The Brigade Team bikes. For World Champs, they've come up with this little number featuring a fun overalls print. The custom painted lid even has a ring pull design for that authentic Blue Ribbon flavour.Over the moon! Alex was stoked to see what The Brigade Team had put together for him for World Champ weekend.
