Levi Kitchen was born and raised in Washougal, Washington. Those who follow motocross know that the small town of Washougal hosts one of the best Pro Motocross Nationals on the circuit each year at Washougal MX; a trail from his house to the track inspired the inevitable love that Levi has for anything with two wheels. He started racing dirt bikes at the age of six and hasn’t stopped since. Levi has looked up to and aspired to be like former top racer, Ryan Villopoto, who was also born and raised in Washington.
It wasn’t until recently that Levi had the opportunity to meet Ryan on a trainer/student level at a summer camp hosted by Villopoto near his hometown in McCleary, Washington. It was there that Levi realized that with more hard work and training, his dreams could maybe someday become a reality and he could earn a living doing what he loves.
He has since moved down to Louisiana to train full time at Real Deal MX Training Facility with Rob and Sherry Burkhart. Levi signed with Cycle Trader | Rock River | Yamaha team for the 2019 season and will compete on the Yamaha YZ125 in the 125 (12-17) B/C and Schoolboy 1 classes. Team Manager Ed Torrance will build his practice and race bikes.
Some of the highlights of Levi’s career were finishing second at Loretta Lynn’s (the biggest Amateur National in the US) in 2018. In 2016, he was invited to race the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas with the fastest Supermini riders from all over the United States, under the bright lights and intense gaze of a near sellout crowd at Sam Boyd Stadium. Another highlight was winning the AMSOIL Arenacross race in Portland Oregon on his Supermini in front of a large crowd and a bunch of hometown fans in 2017.
