Kyle The Kid

Posted by on Apr 18, 2004 in Background

Huddersfield born Kyle Smith started his 2 wheel career age 5 when his Dad (Gary) bought him the children’s favorite the PeeWee . . . a Yamaha PW50 auto. Gary spent some of his youth racing two wheels both dirt and tarmac and was a tough competitor, this was his passion and was always going to influence the next in line !!

So the family started trekking round the local MotoX circuits spanning Yorkshire and Lancaster riding with various MotoX clubs, his first trophy came the same year for ‘best up and coming rider’ Kyle showed good form and had a natural feel to riding the bike although he always looked smaller than the other kids but this didn’t stop him. I bought him his first Mini Moto to which he then took to the local go-cart tracks and started running rings round the big boys !
