Alex Morgan photo diary (part 03)

Our intrepid young world champion/student/reporter checks in like the professional he is. For the third week in a row, Alex Morgan has lived up to his promise of sending a catalogue of shots as part of a weekly diary for RIDE. The brief was minimal: just show us what you get up to in your first season in the senior ranks. A month ago, he won a gold medal in the team pursuit and finished fourth in the individual pursuit at the world championships. In part three, he squeezes in a few more rainbow jersey shots and generally behaves like most healthy 18-year-old blokes in Australia…

"Got a heap of these for my 18th birthday (over 8 months ago). Haven't used them and still have 90 hours of driving to do before I can even attempt at getting my license! Considering I got my Ls when I was almost 17 I think it's fair to say I haven't done a lot of driving."
