James Hyde, talented 13 years old rider

We are delighted to announce the sponsorship of our favourite #7, James Hyde. We believe that even a small push can change the future of the new athletes giving them support to train and reach higher levels. And with that in mind, we hope we can help James open new doors, growing stronger and focused.

James has always been interested in bikes and was riding a Yamaha PW50 from five years old, at six he joined Docklands Riders, a practice-only club and he began to hone his skills. 4 years later he was looking for a different challenge, and so he and his family decided to try racing, so he joined the East Anglian Schoolboys Scramblers Club (EASSC). The club that he still race with today, and although he didn’t know it at the time, it’s one of the top clubs in the country.

In his first year, he was 17th, the following year 15th and this year 11th, with the best placing of 3rd out of 40 riders.

James now 13 years, is a fast rider with distinctive style. He is always exciting to watch, his high corner speed, bravery and diminutive size will all work to his advantage as he progresses as a rider and becomes a young man.

One of his biggest fans and Dad adds: “We are very grateful to Alex and Claudia and all at Alex Motorcycles for the enthusiasm and help they bring to our 2019 campaign and James’s first year on a big wheel 85cc Ktm. Many thanks.”

  10. Via fb I have followed James Hyde’s for several years now. It is great to see with what kind of passion and will power that boy dares to shave through the curves and risks himself to make such high jumps in the air. Also incredible to see how his parents and older brother support him in his passion. I am proud to see what he has achieved so far. A promising young man, there’s no doubt about that. A big congratulations on my behalf following you from Brussels in Belgium! Lode.

  11. Great to see James improving each season with his motocross racing,
    Wishing Team James Hyde all the best in 2019 in the big wheels class.

  12. James is an amazing and talented rider. Seeing him start out with his father and mentor Ben and seeing how far James has grown as a result as a rider is truly impressive … This sponsorship is well deserved and no doubt the start of many. Congrats to you all and looking forward to seeing what the future brings …

  13. An amazing achievement! I remember how passionate you were when you brought your bike in for “show and tell” at primary school when you were just 8 years old and how impressed we were. I wish you all the best and am sure your tenacity and drive can take you to the top!
    Well done James x

  14. Clearly a talented young man with a great future ahead of him. Well done for sponsoring him.

  15. Ho conosciuto questo ragazzo in Inghilterra, visto girare, grande polso.
    Bravo!! James

  16. James gives everything he does 250% so I am sure he will seize this opportunity with the same passion! Go James!

  17. Well done, James! Tremendous performances so far and, now, with the right backing, greater things to come!

  18. I am very proud of my young grandson who has shown courage and skill from a very early age. His high leaps stand out from the average rider of his age group. James “7” is a fast as well as a cautious rider.
    Many thanks to Alex and Claudia for showing belief in James’ future and for generously sponsoring him.

  19. Super leuk dat jullie bedrijf dit soort initiatieven toont, ik ken James al sinds hij een klein mannetje is en hij is altijd een bevlogen rijder geweest.

    Veel succes,


  20. James I am so proud of you. I’m also delighted that Alex’s Motorbikes are sponsoring you. It’s so good that they are supporting the next generation of motorcyclists alongside running their own business. A fantastic achievement all round.

  21. Well done James for the progress you’ve made. And many thanks to Alex Motorcycles for the help with sponsorship. Hopefully a partnership that will go from strength to strength. I look forward to watching at one of the meetings soon.
    Keep enjoying it. It is great to have such enthusiasm as you clearly show.
    Best wishes.

  22. Great news 🙂 #7
    Very well deserved James. Such a pleasure to watch you progress over the seasons. Some great racing last season on the sw85 keeping the paddocks entertained. One of many highlights for me this season would be the Hole shot and superb race at Wroxton for Eassc – Superb!
    On and off the track an amazing young man.

  23. James you are a star. Well done for securing such a generous sponsorship. You’ve truly earned all the praise with your undinting commitment to racing.We are very proud of you. Grandpa Ray &Jane

  27. This is so great!!! Couldn’t agree more, how important it is to support our kids. Well done James Hyde!

  28. I wish to add a note of caution.

    For example: now there’s an off- season he could concentrate on bike repair etc and not just be the pilot. Give dad a break.
    He should not forget his studies at school.
    Good luck James
    Serious BOB
