Bio

Pavel Alekhin is one of the big personalities of the international mountain bike freeride scene, and a regular at slopestyle and dirt jump contests all over the globe.

The Russian is well known for the massive trick variations and combinations he pulls out at dirt jump contests, such as Vienna Air King, Rocket Air and White Style. He also rides brakeless, which defines his riding style.

Alekhin is adept at riding BMX also and has been at the forefront of getting BMX recognised in Russia as a sporting discipline, as well as setting up the Russian BMX Championships.

When not competing, you'll find Alekhin down at 'The Pit', his hometown set-up in Moscow and where he is at his most relaxed.
