We couldn’t be more stoked to bring Alex Pavon (she/her) aboard as our newest MTB ambassador. Based in Flagstaff, Arizona, Alex has been riding and racing since 2013. In addition to being a professional mountain biker, she’s a skier, an EMT, a nursing student and the social media manager for Juliana Bicycles.

Welcome to evo, Alex. 

Teaming Up with Alex

We first got to know Alex in 2019 during Transierra Norte, a multiday enduro race held in Oaxaca, Mexico. We quickly realized that we have a lot of shared values, particularly when it comes to making a positive impact on the communities where we live and play. It was the beginning of a great partnership and as Alex recently told us, “we’re in the process of writing the rest of the story now.”

A Ski Racer Turned MTB Racer

Alex grew up ski racing but made the jump to mountain biking after a friend convinced her to enter a Big Mountain Enduro race. She was hooked immediately. Alex started racing professionally the next year as a Juliana Free Agent before eventually joining the Juliana/SRAM Pro Team.

Alex Rides the Juliana Maverick

“My Maverick is my race bike. I have it set up as 160mm in the front and 146mm in the back. It’s burly enough to handle just about anything I throw at it but is still a bike I can ride around comfortably for 6–8 hours without feeling like I’m pushing a grocery cart uphill through sand.” —Alex Pavon

Growing the Cycling Community

As an evo ambassador, Alex is a big supporter of Grow Cycling Foundation. She believes they’re helping to expand the cycling community in a meaningful and lasting way. Alex points to their work building a Velosolutions Pumptrack in Los Angeles as a prime example of how they’re making good things happen. In 2020, evo made a donation to Grow Cycling Foundation in Alex’s name.
