This is what Kyle had to say when we caught up with him.
How does it feel to be competing for Team GB in the 2018 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship in Australia?
“It feels amazing to be apart of something as big as the Junior World Championships, on my first year on-board the Manchester MX Husqvarna 125cc. I’m looking forward to getting on the plane and head to Horsham to race the best in the world.”
Have you been getting much bike time in before the journey over to Australia?
“I have been doing same preparation during the week as I have always done. My training Bryan Mackenzie has done his best to make sure I’m feeling 100% for every weekend so far.”
Have you done much training?
“I put a lot of hard work in the gym and on track during the week with Bryan Mackenzie and the team. I wont be giving away too many secrets. All I can say is that it’s very professional and its what I’ve been looking for to take me to the next level.”
Have you looked at the track in Australia, which you will be competing at, if so what are your thoughts on the track?
“I have looked at a lot of pictures and GoPro videos of the track. In my opinion I think it looks really fun to race on. Fast flowing and some nice black dirt.”
Looking ahead to the weekend’s proceedings where you will represent your country in front of the rest of the world’s elite youth riders. What are your plans?
“I’m heading to Australia to enjoy every minute of it. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I will never get to race a 125cc at this level again, so I’m going to go out and make the most of it. When I enjoy myself and have fun whilst riding. That’s when I can really turn things up. Overall I am excited.”
