    5 minutes with Alex Holguin
    Nov201417

    The P1 AquaX has been very successful in bringing new blood into the sport so we decided here at Prorider to shed some spot lights on some of the newer faces to PWC racing.

    Alex Holguin is not a stranger around PWC. He has messed around with watercraft for quite sometime but his first experience with watercraft racing was in 2013 when AquaX launched here in the USA.

    PR: What are your plans for the 2015 race season?

    AH: For the 2015 season I plan to race AquaX USA and improve on my 3rd place finish from last year. I would also like to race a few other events.

    PR: Who do you see as your biggest competition going into 2015?

    AH: Going into 2015 I believe my biggest competition will be Eric Lagopoulos if he decides to stay in the 250 class. If not Maikel Gonzalez, Sean Hagen and RonJon will be strong competition along with Ken Moore if he decides to come back.

    PR: Is there anything you would like to add?

    AH: I think the 2015 race season will be the best one yet and I believe we will have more racers competing.  I would also like to thank my 2015 sponsors: SPY, ODI grips, Lucas Legion, Shorai Power Batteries, Rynopower.
