Hudson brings BMX talent to Mars Hill

11 04 2012

Mars Hill Cycling is pleased to announce that professional BMX rider Alan Hudson joins the team for fall. Hudson is the second BMX-specific rider the team has added for fall, after Cate Wood was announced in February.

Hudson takes on Sam Willoughby at Grand Nationals last November.

Hudson will help lead, mentor, and build the team’s BMX and gravity mountain bike squads. Hudson brings years of experience in gated events: he started racing BMX at 9 , turned pro at 16, has competed in over 100 pro main events, and made the final at the 2008 USAC BMX Championships in the Elite category. Hudson is proficient on the mountain bike as well, consistently making the finals at the Fontana Southridge Series, including a couple of wins.

Hudson looks forward to contributing to the team’s growth and breadth of experience by teaching newer riders the intricacies of the gate, an all important factor in BMX and gravity mountain bike racing. Hudson has taught over 100 clinics and gives regular gate clinics at local practice nights in Phoenix, Arizona.

While Hudson brings strong experience and mentoring capabilities to the team, he also looks forward to continuing his personal growth in the sport while getting a college degree. We’re excited he chose Mars Hill. Hudson will focus his studies on political science.

Welcome to the team, Alan!
