On June 23rd, 2017 Alex was in a motorcycle accident at Portland International Raceway during a practice run.
He sustained several injuries including broken bones, fractures on his skull and road rash. He has been at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland in ICU since then.
Alex is making progress but has a long road ahead of him. Any prayers or donations on his behalf would be greatly appreciated. We will keep you updated on his progress below.
