Manchester MC Husqvarna Team Rider Kyle McNicol has his eyes set on Duns for the Maxxis
Manchester MC Husqvarna Team Rider Kyle McNicol has his eyes fully focussed on Duns where he will race the Judd KTM British Youth National Championship Powered by Parts Europe on July 14 and 15, as well as the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship on Sunday July 29.
Kyle is currently lying 11thin the Maxxis MXY2 Support Class and fourth in the Official British 125cc Championship run at the Judd KTM British Youth National Championship.
We caught up with Kyle ahead of the two Duns races to talk about his season so far.
RHL: How is the season going for you so far?
Kyle McNicol: “My season has been going good so far. I’ve had some bad weekends along the way, but I’m just trying to stay consistent.”
RHL: You’re racing for the Manchester MC Husqvarna team, how’s it going with the team?
Kyle McNicol: “Things are great with the team; Carl Heaton and the boys at Manchester motorcycles give 110% to make sure everyone is happy.”
RHL: How was the opening round of the British MXY2 support class at Blaxhall and how did you feel with your results and set-up?
Kyle McNicol: “My results at Blaxhall didn’t go as planned, but my bike set-up felt amazing thanks to Jon Giffard at JGR Performance.”
RHL: You are currently 11thin the MXY2 championship. How do you feel and what is your goal for this year in the series?
Kyle McNicol: “My current position in the championship isn’t where I would like to be, but I will be going into Duns looking to have fun and end the weekend with some good results.”
RHL: Looking ahead to Duns, what are your thoughts on the track and your aims for Sunday July 29?
Kyle McNicol: “I think Duns is a perfect track to host a British Championship at. Bryan Mackenzie and his team do an excellent job of the track every week to make sure riding is safe and enjoyable.”
RHL: What training and preparation do you do before each event?
Kyle McNicol: “I currently train with Bryan Mackenzie in the gym and on the bike. I feel like this is a perfect opportunity to take my fitness and riding to the next level in the future.”
RHL: You’re also competing in the Judd KTM British Youth National Championship in the 125cc class. How has the first half of the season gone for you and also how does the racing compare to riding at the Maxxis?
Kyle McNicol: “My season in the British Youth National Championship has gone great so far. Going into this year there we had no pressure or expectations from the team as I made the jump from 85cc to the 125cc, however the jump went very well, which equalled in me winning my first ever British Championship 125cc race at Fraddon. My competitors in both Championships are very skilled and fast, making racing more exciting because everyone on the line wants to win.”
