DREAM JOBS: HOW TO MAKE A LIVING DOING WHAT YOU LOVE (08/24/12)


RYAN ALEXI
FACTORY MX OWNER

STARTING POINT: STARTING POINT: “My dad made me get a job at 14. I swept floors at Dave Huffman’s shop. I eventually started learned about engines, suspension and all the basics. Over the years I worked at StarCycle USA, dealerships and 661. I was a rep at 661 and went out on the road and to all the races. When I was old enough, I started my own company and haven’t looked back.”

THE JOB: “Day to day, I do everything from sweeping the floors to rebuilding four-stroke engines to revalving suspension to talking on the phone. The most rewarding thing is when someone comes in with broken bike and we get them set up with parts, and then we see them out the track with a smile on their face. It nice to know that we helped them get to that spot.”
