Kyle Ryde flew out to Australia early as he prepares for the first race of the 2017 calendar at Phillip Island.
The 20+ hour flight will undoubtedly give Ryde the chance to mull over last season’s race on his favourite circuit in the series.
Ryde is in WSBK action this weekend over February 24-26 when he will once again saddle up on his Kawasaki.
Ryde has been boosted by new sponsor Beechfield Acoustics who join LANGVER as 2017 sponsors.
A sopkesperson for the Ryde camp said: “We’ve been really busy organising events, selling tickets, teaming up with new sponsors and getting everything together for the first race at Phillip Island in just over a week’s time. It’s been super busy but we’ve made it this far and were determined to do everything we can to give Kyle the best opportunity to perform in 2017.
Firstly, Kyle Ryde Racing are delighted to announce that we have secured a sponsorship deal with Beechfield Acoustics. This deal will see the Beechfield Acoustics logo occupy the bottom visor spot on Kyles helmet and also see their brand represented on the new Kawasaki for the whole of the 2017 campaign.
“We are delighted to have secured this deal and while it helps Kyle with the costs of competing we also think it represents a great opportunity for Beechfield as they look to further spread awareness of their company at home and abroad.”
