Alex has grown up in Norway and started cross country skiing as soon as he could walk, because that's what kids do in Norway! He skied with his family recreationally until he started training with Holmen IF Langrenn at the age of 8.

His ambitions for next year are to be in the top 50 in the Norges cups, and to qualify and race for Britain. Athletes that inspire him are Johannes Klæbø, Emil Iversen and Marit Bjørgen.
