New chalenges ahead for Kyle with the Bluesens Avintia team in Moto2. Neil Morrison (journalist) writes about him.
by Neil Morrison (journalist):
Motorcycle grand prix will have a strong British flavour in 2013, with eight full time riders, including three in the intermediate Moto2 category.
Amongst them is a name that may be unfamiliar to some in the UK: Kyle Smith. The 21-year-old Yorkshire rider will contest the Moto2 class this year alongside 2010 Champion Toni Elias in the Blusens Avintia team.
Smith’s road to the world stage has been slightly unconventional for a lad from Yorkshire.
His ride came after a highly competitive spell in the Spanish CEV stock extreme championship through 2010 to ’12, with some eye-catching displays. He was ranked second overall last season after finishing inside the top six in every race with two podiums, including a precocious race win at a damp Jerez.
