Alex Morrice Great Britain
Alex Morrice earned a two-year pro contract with CANYON//SRAM Racing after winning the 2022 Zwift Academy. It’s the seventh year that CANYON//SRAM Racing has used Zwift, the fitness company born from gaming, as a form of talent identification.
“I saw the series last year, enjoyed watching it and wanted to give it a go myself to see how far I could get. There’s no other opportunity quite like the Zwift Academy.
I’m extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity. I look forward to training and racing full-time in a professional environment where I can fully focus on reaching my potential. I want to gain as much experience racing at this level and take advantage of this opportunity. I haven’t set any goals yet but am focusing on understanding myself better as a rider and determining my rider skillset fully with the help of the team around me.”
CANYON//SRAM Racing lead Sport Director Magnus Bäckstedt said, “Alex impressed me with her current power numbers for the type of rider we were hoping to find for the team. She also displayed a good understanding of tactics, with a real feeling for the race moment, and she still has room to develop. Alex impressed during the whole week of finals, and we’re excited to welcome her to the team.”
