Rider bio

Kevin is a mechanical man, his favourite subject at school is mechanics and in his free time he likes to ride motocross as well as going to the gym. Then there is the racing of course, that came from his father. "He raced motocross when he was a boy and I was interested ever since I was a child."

Pocket bike racing with dad

"My dad bought me a pocket bike when I was five and took me to the track near the house. From that day I never stopped riding, I realized immediately that this was what I wanted to do. Both my parents now follow me when I compete and are my biggest fans."

Pocket bike racing, early days

"My objective in the racing is to give 100% and my dream is to get to the World Championship and to fight for victories there. The Red Bull Rookies Cup is the best step to get there."

2013 - MiniGP 50

He has already been working hard to follow his heroes who include; Rossi, Dovizioso, Simoncelli. He has had many great races alraedy; "My best race was the last round of Italian PreMoto3 Championship this year at Mugello because even though I had difficulty with the engine I managed to stay in the lead for a long time. I fought for the victory with beautiful overtaking though eventually I finished a very close second.

2015 - Mugello podium PreMoto3

"in 2015 I learned a lot ... use a little more head during the race and tried to get up to speed immediately on the first lap."

2015 - PreMoto3 250

"My expectations for 2016 are to try and learn the bike and tracks as quickly as possible. To try and fight for the best positions even though I know it's really hard because the level is very high but I'm positive."

"My favorite track for now is Mugello and the points I like most for overtaking are braking zones and direction changes."

His philosophy is clear; "About racing I like everything. Of course winning is satisfying but to get to win you must be good also in working with the team, to create a relationship of trust to work together for a better motorcycle."
