Double Trouble – Kingsford Brothers Eye a Big Future


Australian motocross has often seen successful families in racing. Names like Jay and Ryan Marmont, Craig and Danny Anderson to more recently Mitch and Richie Evans, have all enjoyed success on the race track and done it has a family as they travel the country enjoying a sport and hobby they all love.

And that tradition is set to continue as another family of racing begins to climb the ladder. Based in Goulbourn, New South Wales, Ryder and Kayd Kingsford are starting to make waves in the junior racing as they spend their weekends travelling the country in search of events and competition.

Ryder, the oldest brother at age 14, is the 2019 Australian 12-14 years 85cc champion and backed that up with a third place in the 13-14 years 125cc class. For 2020, he ,makes the full transition onto the bigger bikes and will be contesting the 125 and 250cc divisions.

And his talent is not just on a motocross track, he is pretty handy inside the stadiums on a supercross track where he also won the 85cc class at the 2019 Australian Supercross Championships.
Ryder was also selected to represent Australia at the world junior titles in 2019 and the family travelled to Italy where he finished a very respectable 13th place in the 85cc class.

‰ÛÏ2019 was a great year on my 85 and I was able to win a few things but I‰Ûªm really excited about racing the 250 this year and contesting as many events as we can,‰Û
Kayd, now 12, has moved from the 65 and 85cc small wheel classes to focus on the 85cc big wheel and a YZ125 isn‰Ûªt too far off into the future.

Kayd was one of the few selected riders to represent Yamaha and the YZ65 when the bike was released in mid 2018 and he has achieved significant success on the bike but is now looking forward to racing the bigger machines.

Both riders have been important members of the GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing Team since joining in 2017 and haven grown into great ambassadors for the brand and feisty competitors on the track.

‰ÛÏThe last few years with Yamaha Junior Racing has been amazing,‰Û
Living in the country also allows the family to have a track in their back yard to practice and train on. Both riders are still attending school, but once they are home and the homework is done, the hit the track several times away in preparation for up coming events.

‰ÛÏHaving the luxury to access a track at any time has been great and it frees up so much time,‰Û
