Alex Duffy was the first rider going into the ring in the Amsterdam Grand Prix riding Living the Dream - and he showed everyone how it should be done with a clear round that took our breath away. Here's Alex heading for the finishing line after the jump-off, to eventually end third. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
