Past Career

De Keyrel said, “I had an incredible rookie season. I far exceed the expectations I set for myself, I was able to quickly adapt to the bike, my crew worked really well together to get me what I needed to go fast and that lead to good solid finishes all season long. I enjoy the 1000 over any bike I have raced in the past and would love to stay on a big bike either in Stock 1000 or move up to Superbike when the time is right.”
