Levi De Keyrel, Little Rider #53, De Keyrel Racing
I’ve got a mad crush on the boss of the De Keyrel Racing team, Levi De Keyrel. With those incredible eyes, charming freckles, and confident spirit at the age of only five, it’s no wonder I was smitten when I met him at Road America for this MotoAmerica race weekend.
Walking up to say hi to his parents and brothers, this youngest of three men was already taking charge and running the show on his bicycle. In the true spirit of the De Keyrel motto, trying to capture Levi’s portrait for this MotoAmerica photo series was definitely a family team effort with his big brothers Kaleb and Mason racing to catch him for me. In just a few minutes we were able to grab a few fantastic shots that make my heart swoon. Check out the images below and you’ll see why; he’s just so incredibly cute!
