Kenny Noyes: Back to smiling one year on

Former Moto2™ racer Kenny Noyes suffered a life threatening crash in 2015, but one year on he’s back to riding and smiling.

On the fifth of July 2015 Kenny Noyes crashed during Warm Up for the FIM CEV Repsol European Superbike championship round in Aragon, the American was airlifted to hospital in a coma. His family, including renowned MotoGP™ journalist Dennis Noyes, never left his side during the following weeks as Kenny Noyes slowly began to come out of the coma.

It wasn’t an easy process but soon Kenny was in the Guttmann Institute in Barcelona and beginning his rehabilitation process. His goal was clear throughout: to get back on a bike. Eight months after the accident he climbed aboard a Suzuki ‘wheelie machine’ and got to lift the front wheel off the ground once again. He began to drive cars more, ride motorcycles more and help out with the maintenance of the Noyes Camp Racing School.

His ultimate goal is to get back on his Kawasaki superbike, but only if and when he is ready. Kenny’s desire to get back on a motorcycle has been a major help in his recovery, the discipline from years of racing allowing him to work even harder in rehab. It’s still a long road ahead, but one year on from that fateful day, Noyes is back riding and smiling. Read the full story on motoamerica.com
