At just 20 years of age, Kyle Webster has travelled the world with his family, and racing dirt bikes has been an integral part every step of the way.
He started racing in South Africa at age 4, won his first race a year later at five, then moved to the UK at six, where he competed in 50 and 65cc junior racing. A quick trip to America soon after saw him compete in the prestigious KTM Mini Challenge at the San Diego AMA Supercross, which he won, and qualified for the Final in Las Vegas.
In 2006 at 10 years of age, Webster and his family moved to Western Australia and he’s been in Australia ever since, racing Junior motocross events and racking up state and national wins as he goes.
Just over three years ago Webster moved to Sydney and the east coast to establish himself on the national race scene, a move which ultimately paid big dividends in the form of a ride with Penrite CRF Honda Racing for 2016.
“Leaving home and moving all the way across the country was a big move,” Webster admits, “but it has definitely been the right thing to do.
“I’m now into my second year racing with Penrite CRF Honda Racing and having that level of team support behind you makes all the difference to your racing.”
An MX2 moto winner at the MX Nationals last year, Webster is itching to repeat that form in 2017 as he sets his sights on a championship victory.
“Winning motivates me,” Webster reveals, “but other athletes who train hard and put everything into their racing to become champions also inspire me.”
