Kayne Lamont- Catch-up in UK

Kayne Lamont- Catch-up in UK

Kayne Lamont is all set for racing the Pirelli British Masters at Foxhill this weekend under UK’s Turvey Construction Yamaha Team.

Kayne Lamont pic 2Having recently arrived in the UK, from what would be described as several disappointing set-backs to his 2014-2015 MX season, Lamont has acclimatised and is eager to clock up race time before competing on NZ’s MXoN Team at the end of September.

I caught up with Kayne prior to this weekend’s MX2 racing-

SC: How are you settling in at the base in UK before hitting the track?

Kayne: ‘I struggled a fair bit with jet lag the first few days but the weather has been warmer than home which is good. I’d be happier if it didn’t rain so much during the season they call ‘summer’ here though!!’

SC: What events have you planned to race in the up-coming weeks?

Kayne: ‘I have the British Masters race this weekend at Foxhill (August 2nd) and then I race at Hawkstone the following weekend for the MX Nationals’.

SC: Given time-frame before MXoN at the end of September, what will your focus be for training and bike time?

Kayne: ‘To adapt to the European style tracks and work on bike fitness and speed’.

SC: Racing YZ250F how has bike set-up going given the difference between NZ’s MX tracks and tracks in the UK?

Kayne: ‘The tracks over here are different for sure, quite technical and challenging. My bike set-up is going well as the Team have put a solid engine and suspension package together which has made it very easy to set the bike up’.

SC: Your selection to represent NZ with BT and Cody at MXoN in France would be the highlight of the year. What are you looking forward to competing in this inaugural event?

Kayne: ‘I’m excited to race along-side BT and Coops in such a major event. I have raced the track at Ernee many times on the Play Station so I’m looking forward to actually riding it!!”

Pirelli British Masters: August 2nd

MX Nationals: August 9th
