Sunday Bikes pro Alex Magallan of Nashville, Tenn. is now riding for the Opertiv Brand team for 2012, joining team riders David Grant, Bobby Simmons, Chad Ring and Josh Suhre. According to Operativ's Josh Suhre, "We're honored to announce that Alex Magallan has joined the Operativ crew for 2012. On a path of destruction from his Props "Owned" DVD section, epic Ride BMX mag interview, and stacking up sponsors like Dan's Comp and IPath all in the past year, we're excited to keep the momentum going and carry inspiration from Alex's unique approach on the BMX lifestyle into Operativ."
Suhre launched Operativ in the fall of 2010, and Magallan is the first new team rider to join the brand since the brand announced its initial team. "Alex's riding style is unmistakable, and paints a portrait of his race-inspired roots, laid back personality, and ability to redefine what's possible at spot after spot with a unique eye. Alex exemplifies the principles that define the Operativ mission, and we're simply amped to have him reppin," added Suhre.
Magallan is currently filming for the upcoming Dan's Comp video with Stew Johnson, and brings a Mihelich-esque touch to the already heavy crew of riders on Operativ Brand. In more Operativ news, the brand has added zip-up sweatshirts to their expanding clothing line, and are now on Instagram @operativbrand. Go follow their photos and hopefully wait in anticipation for some Magallan-flavored newness from Operativ Brand.
