My name is Adam Sterry, I’m 18 years old and from a small town called Sealand, North Wales. I started riding bikes at a very young age, nothing too serious to start with. At 5 years old dad bought me a bike and I loved it, just doing laps of the garden. It was weird really because dad never had a motocross background so it was new for us both. It progressed from there really with entering some Local county races.
Working my way up race by race I started to excel and enjoyed a very successful amateur career winning many youth British Championships and a World Championship. I started racing professionally in 2012 at 15 years old.
I ride for a team called Wilvo Forkrent KTM which is an English team but it’s based and works from Holland, which is the capital of European Motocross. This is my 3rd year with them so we know how each other work.
Outside motocross I love mountain biking, cycling, and hanging out with friends. Also motocross gives me a chance to see a lot of the world which is pretty cool.
It takes a lot so I’m thankful of the people behind the scenes that help me do what I love so I hope I can continue and endure a lot of success.
- 2010: 85cc British Masters Champion, BYMX Champion and 3rd in the European 150cc Championship
- 2011: MXY2 250cc 2nd, BYMX 250cc 2nd. Youngest ever race and round winner
- 2012: First year being a Professional with a 14th in the Maxxis British Championship
- 2013: 7th in the Maxxis British Championship and 21st in the European EMX250 Championship
- 2014: 3rd in the Maxxis British Championship and 3rd in the European EMX250 Championship
Hopefully by the time I retire I would love to be a multiple World Champion and have a go across the pond. Just being respected within the sport as well.
To be World Champion or win Mx Des Nations with Team GB.
Injuries are pretty common amongst motocross so I would say that’s the biggest difficulty.
When you win! There’s no better feeling, it makes all the hard work pay off.
Wherever and whenever I ride I try to improve in some way or another.
Honestly it’s the pressure I put on myself to do well which makes me most nervous but as I get older I feel I can control that a lot better than when I was younger.
Follow your dreams just because someone says you can’t, work hard and prove them wrong. We only get one life so make it count!
In 2016 I will race my first ever full Mx2 World Championship series so hopefully I can excel in that but after Motocross I’m not sure we will see what happens…
The first two days of this course follow the same outline as the 1 and 2 day courses (above) and it then offers another full day on the board to really master the board start and go on to controlled edging, upwind riding and turns. If you’re keen to take up the sport we recommend the three day kitesurfing lesson as it gives the time to become confident and independent.

All Equipment, including safety is supplied in the kite landboarding lessons:
Bring a study pair of shoes, sunglasses, sun cream and warm clothing if it is cold.
