Kyle Keast is no stranger to comebacks or doing things his way. The stubbornness he sometimes shows off the track also has carried over to his performance on the track. This never-give-up attitude has made Keast a fan favourite over the years, proven many times at the Gopher Dunes Nationals. With all of this in mind it was a delight to hear last week that for 2015 Keast has signed on to be a part of the powerful GDR Honda Team alongside Westen Wrozyna. These two Ontario riders will work out of their own truck and will compete from coast to coast in the 2015 Rockstar Energy Drink MX Nationals. We caught up with Keast as he is now over a month into his training for what could be the biggest comeback of his career.
