Alexander Alexandrovich Efimkin (Russian: Александр Александрович Ефимкин, born 2 December 1981 in Kuybyshev) is a director sportiff for Russian Professional cycling team RusVelo, prior to that a Russian professional road bicycle racer for UCI Professional Continental team Team Novo Nordisk.[1] His twin brother is Vladimir Efimkin. Alexander Efimkin burst on to the professional cycling scene in 2005 with a 2nd place overall at the Settimana Ciclistica Lombarda, a highly competitive race. Since that time he has proven a competent professional racer, with few victories to his name. In part this is owing to his service to the stars of his team, and in part due to his relatively young age.[2]
