Young sportsman is an all-rounder

MOUNT George grandmother Cheryl Andrews is very proud of her grandson Kye.

Eleven-year-old Kye recently competed in the Troy Bayliss Classic achieving second place in the 85cc and third in the 65cc, both in the 9-U13 years.

Kye is busy carving out a sporting career for himself and Cheryl is his biggest fan.

Taking Kye around the country to compete is one of Cheryl's greatest joys.

Cheryl said she is very proud of her grandson and in particular his involvement with bikes - Cheryl herself was president of Taree Motorcycle Club and is a life member of the club.

Kye has been riding for just four years but has already achieved podium finishes in all state titles on the bike as well as a podium finish at the Australian Titles when he placed second in 2012. Kye said his aim is to go back to the Australian titles and cites Darcy Ward, Jason Crump and Troy Bayliss as his some of his sporting heroes. His ultimate sporting goal is to make it to the Moto GP.

Kye is school captain of Cundletown Public School and as well as riding, he has represented NSW in the 100, 200 and 800 distance running as well as cross country.

Recently Kye bagged four medals in the regional athletics carnival at Lismore. It was a great meet for Kye as he only started at Little Athletics last year.
