Alan Hudson is a California native living in Phoenix, Arizona. His first race was at Apple Valley BMX. Neighborhood kids brought him to the track and at 9-years-old he was hooked. To pay for races he would work at the track. Between the ages of 13-15 Allen hit the national scene and began to win races. He also got his first factory ride with Enigma racing. The team gave him the chance to race quite a bit in Florida and NBL circuit. Alan turned pro at 16. By the time he was 18-years-old he was racing with the elites. College came a calling and he reclassified to A pro. Alan rode for Mars Hill University in Asheville, North Carolina. The opportunity would allow him to race BMX and MTB National Championships. Once he finished college with a political science degree Alan moved around a bit. He lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, Seattle and then back to Phoenix.
