At 11 years old Joel Kelso is already a multiple Australian dirt track and road race champion.
Riding from 4 years old, Joel is following in the footsteps of Australian Road Race legends. Competing from 7 years old in Dirt track Joel won multiple Australian and State Titles, a notable milestone being a clean sweep at the Casey Stoner Cup in the 65cc, 85cc, 2 stroke, and 85cc, 4 stroke classes.
In 2013 Joel moved on to Road Racing and he has not looked back, on his Metrakit 70 he has proven competitive, not only winning his class, but dicing for overall podium positions against machines of greater capacity achieving close to maximum points and claimed both the MRRDA and Pirelli Titles.
In 2014, on his new RMU 70 Joel has continued on his winning way, claiming the MRRDA 70cc title, as well as overall podium positions.
A highlight of 2014 was an opportunity to travel to England and to compete in a round of the FAB racing series, Joel was competitive against far more experienced riders, and finished the weekend with a 5th placing, with tenths between the leaders.
Joel is proud to have been invited to complete in the 2015 Troy Bayliss Classic.
