Reese Kelley is not your average sixth grader
Published: Thursday, October 13th, 2011
Like most kids his age, Reese Kelley was five years old when he received his first bike. The difference is that Kelley’s first bike was for motocross. Another difference between Kelley and kids his age is the fact that he has sponsorships and hundreds of trophies.
Kelley, 11, started racing motocross bikes at the age of 5, when he received his first bike as a gift. Since then, Kelley has competed in races across the country, including Texas, Washington, Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, California and Nevada—just to name a few.
Out of all the states Kelley has raced in, his favorite would have to be Colorado, because the other racers there are fast and give him great competition.
“My favorite race was the KTM Supercross in California,” he said. “I entered the pro race and was picked at intermission to race around the track.”
