Kyle Middleton, 22 years old from Lake Macquarie, works the typical 9-5 life as an apprentice draftsman at a Newcastle firm. Outside of those hours, Kyle’s passion and dedication for his chosen sport of motorcycle trials is anything but typical. He is currently Australia’s number one rider and travels throughout the country and the world to compete.
Motorcycle trials is the only motorcycle sport not based on speed or racing. Trials riders use a combination of balance, brake, throttle, and clutch control to send their machines up and down a series of obstacles which seem unrideable to the untrained eye.
