Let me introduce myself, my name is Alec Dufour, I'm 18 and I'm motocross rider since over 12 years now. I am from Gatineau Quebec and at the age of 6 my father gave me my first motocross, a KX65. That’s why my father and I decided to enroll me in my first race that was held in La Tuque. I finished fifth and it was a great experience ! This competition introduced me to the motocross and from that moment I have been passionate about the sport. I could even say that it takes a very big part in my life.

The year 2016 is fast approaching, how did you prepare for this season ? Do you feel ready ?

For the 2016 season, I trained during the winter to be fit for the start of the season. I also went to JWTF motocross camp during the holidays to improve myself. All this helped me to be ready and in full form for this season I look forward !

Which machine you will ride this season and why did you choose to ride this one ?

For this season I will ride two Husqvarna , a FC250 (4 stroke) and TC250 (2 stroke) . I chose these bikes in order to make different classes and above all to have fun on a powerful machine that will help me pursue my dream.
