Cycle Ranch is proud to announce a new live-in training program, and invites serious aspiring motocross athletes to train full time at weekly, monthly, or yearly programs.

Cycle Ranch’s trainers are pro riders Kyle Keylon and Tyler Livesay. Keylon is recently retired from AMA pro racing. He was one of the top amateurs in the United States and can boast finishing in the top 10 at many professional races. He has been coached by Ricky Carmichael’s mother, Jeannie Carmichael. Kyle trained alongside many professionals, such as Chad Reed, Josh Grant, Kyle Chisholm, Tim Ferry, and Malcolm Stewart. Keylon looks forward to helping riders advance from the amateur to the pro level.

Tyler Livesay has held his pro card for five years and has been teaching riders since 2006. He has qualified for several nationals and continues to race competitively. He has also trained with several top pros such as James Stewart and Tim Ferry. Keylon and Livesay specialize in training all age and skill levels.

Participants in the program will learn riding fundamentals and technique, cornering, jumping, breaking, whoops, and more. They will also learn about nutrition, off-bike training, mental preparation, how to attract sponsors, conduct interviews, and to make a career in motocross.

Cycle Ranch offers a variety of different tracks, including a national style MX outdoor track that sweeps through several elevation changes throughout its 2 miles, and most sections are 30 feet wide. There are technical sections, as well as fast sections. The night track, dubbed the “Field of Dreams” by locals, is based on a super cross style, and was designed by Dreamtraxx, the designers of Barcia, Canard, and Stewart’s practice tracks. There is a full set of stadium lights allowing racers to ride at night. There are also two turn tracks that help riders focus on the basic techniques and drills to help gain speed through the corners on different types of soil from sugar sand to clay. There is also a GP-style track that is perfect for vet riders, hard-pack training, and those newer to riding.

Living at Cycle Ranch is made as easy and fun as possible. The facility has 30-amp RV hook-ups and dry camping throughout the facility. There is also a playground, trampoline, high speed Internet, and much more. The track is five minutes from downtown Floresville, and only 35 minutes from San Antonio, giving guests access to anything they may need for living or entertainment. There is also an onsite mechanic and fully stocked pro shop.
