Personal History

Hi there,

My name is Kevin Bartle, Age 31, from Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England.

I am a fully Qualified Hgv Mechanic and workshop Foreman. 

Racings in my blood, my Dad, Uncles, Auntie and Cousins have all raced at one time or another. I didn't start riding until I was 16, I dragged my dads old Honda Xr200 out the shed and it went from there. I didn't start racing however until I was 22, my first race was on a honda crf230 and I finshed 2nd in class and 15th overall! I went on to claim the title in my first year. 

When im not racing/riding, I go running, mountain biking and spending time with my family and friends. 

Riding Goals

I ride for fun, but don't misunderstand, I take my racing very seriously and I am always pushing my self to improve my skills both on and off the bike. But it's always got to be fun, otherwise it's not worth doing. 

I really want to take the clubman class championship at my local club in 2015, I've shown this year that I have had the pace, but lacked the consistency to really fight for the title. So I am determined to put the work in on/off the bike to make it a reality in 2015. And along the way I am aiming to do more challenging events and try and do at least one British Enduro Championship round. 

I would like to get my Endurocross practice track built in 2015,  so I have perminant training facility to hone my skills and to spend time with my family while I do so.
