If you’ve paid close attention to the privateers racing the 450SX class in Supercross this year, you should already know the name Alex Ray. Grinding away like many others in the class, he’s enjoyed some solid results in 2017 and currently sits 28th in points. His riding and positive personality caught the eye of the folks at CycleTrader.com/Rock River Yamaha after they unfortunately needed to find a replacement for an injured Tommy Hahn. Ray just landed the spot prior to Daytona, so we stopped by and talked to him early Saturday morning.
