Alise Post  

Hailing from small town, middle America (St Cloud, Minnesota to be exact), Alise Post is the most successful female BMX racer to ever swing her leg over a bike.

Alise started racing BMX at the age of 6 and immediately fell in love with the sport. Her older brother Nick was an avid racer and pushed to get her started in the sport. After a few practice sessions, Alise entered her first race and won, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Her love of racing pushed her to win her first Girls Overall National Championship at the age of 10, beating out thousands of other girls for the title. Just to make sure no one thought it was a fluke, Alise repeated the feat three more times. Alise finished up her amateur career with well over 100 National victories and numerous Local, State, Regional and World Championship titles.

Needing a new challenge, and despite the season being well under way, Alise decided to make the jump to the pro ranks mid-season in 2006. She turned 15 three months prior, the minimum age to enter the Pro category. After taking two thirds in her first two races, it didnt take her long to win her first race, finding the top of the podium in just her third try. Alise finished up with 5 wins for the season, enough to earn her the Women's Pro National Championship in her rookie year. At 15 years of age, Alise is the youngest to ever win the Pro Championship. And, the icing on the cake, Alise was also voted "Rookie Pro of the Year" (an honor that had been exclusively reserved for males) by the readers of BMX'er Magazine.

So far in 2007, Alise already has six wins (in eight tries) and looks to be the odds-on favorite to repeat as the National Champion, making her only the third Woman to win it in back-to-back years.

But, Alise has loftier goals. BMX will make it's debut at the Beijing, China Olympic Games in 2008, and despite the fact that she is the best female BMX racer the US has to offer, she will not be invited to attend this race. Alise misses the 19-years-of-age cutoff by about a year. So she will have to wait until 2012 - 5 years to train and focus on Olympic Gold. She will be 21 then, just coming into her prime. She will have the advantage, unlike the riders who will debut in Beijing, of knowing exactly what she is getting into. Expect, as usual, Alise to make the most of her opportunities.

Away from the track, Alise excels at just about everything she tries. An all-star in gymnastics and track as well, Alise has already caught the eyes of several Division 1 colleges while still a high school sophomore. She finds the time between all of her extra-curricular activities to maintain a straight A report card.

At 16, she is smart with a great humor and sensibilty about her. She is confidence personified, without the conceit that you might expect from someone who has achieved so much so soon. Alise knows what it takes to succeed, her drive and work ethic are unparalleled. She is the total package - smart, good natured, outgoing, attractive, and, above all, a champion.
