Kyle joined Puccetti Racing Team in the World Supersport Championship. He rode a Kawasaki ZX-6R and was a team mate to reigning Supersport World Champion Kenan Sofuoğlu.
Kyle’s first 4 rounds was a fantastic start to the season, finishing 4th in Australia, 5th in Thailand, 8th and 12th. Kyle was consistent in the top 15 in the world most of the season, but parted with the team in October 2017.  Finished 12th Overall.
Kyle made his debut ride in British Superbikes for the last three races of the season in October at Brands Hatch on Billy McConnell‘s machine, Kyle finished very respectably in 15th, 17th and 18th.
Kyle signed with an Italian team for his first season’s racing in the Supersport World Championship on a Yamaha YZF-R6but the team unexpectedly withdrew from competition without explanation after the first five events in May 2016. Ryde only missed one event, at Sepang, Malaysia. He later rode an MV Agusta F3 675 and a Kawasaki ZX-6R in the Supersport World Championship for Schmidt Racing,a team formed during late 2015 in Hungary, joining with team-mate Nicolás Terol. finished 25th overall.                                         
Having won the 600 Superstock championship in 2014 Kyle moved up to the ultra competitive British Supersport 600 championship. Kyle came second to Luke Stapleford in what proved to be an action packed season, the highlight of which was Kyles third place as a wildcard entry for the Donnington park round of the World Supersports championship
Kyle now age 16 rode in the British Championship once again, riding for the first time a 600cc machine which has over twice as much power than any previous bikes he’s raced.

Kyle was given a big opportunity with a sponsored ride and to compete in the CEV Spanish championship with Racing Steps Foundation team who support British talent, this is the last stepping stone to Moto GP
The cost to do this approx £150.000 so Kyle was very lucky and privileged.
Kyle’s season started with testing in Spain, it looked very promising. His first race meeting he got his first podium, 3rd place in the very wet condition in Barcelona.
He scored regular points, which at that level was a fantastic achievement.
He also competed as a wild card entry at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Kyle went on to compete in BSB again but on the first ever Moto 3 in the country. His first race on the new bike he qualified on pole and won the race. So another record to his name.
He also contended in the Red Bull Rookies at the same time and has the previous year missed more races because of this, so was unable to defend his title.
Kyle finished 5th overall.

Kyle started riding at the age of 6 when we got him a PW50 for the fields which he took to straight away. We then got him a Blata 40cc minimoto to play on and he really enjoyed riding it, so much he wouldn’t get off it. We decided to jump in at the deep end and get him a racing spec minimoto and have a go at racing. After making a few phone calls we managed to find a real nice bike that was owned by the Moto GP 125cc rider Danny Webb.
Kyle rode minimotos up to 2006 with many wins and fastest laps.
