Get To Know Kecks Athlete Jonny Walker

Jonny Is One of the leading names in enduro, with a trophy cabinet full of the sport's biggest prizes.

Jonny Walker has been riding since the age of nine. He began by competing in the British Schoolboy Trials Championship, which he won twice, and maintained a top-three ranking until he was 17. Jonny was also the youngest-ever winner of The Pinhard Prize, an accolade awarded to under-21s who are deemed to be the highest achievers. In 2008 and 2009, Jonny competed in the European and Junior World Trials Championships, but after several years in Trials, he hankered after a different challenge.

Buying his first motocross bike led him to try the sport of Enduro after a friend suggested he should have a go. Despite a lack of experience, in his first full Enduro season he enjoyed considerable success. He registered impressive first-time results in the World Indoor Cup, Hell’s Gate and the British Enduro Championship, until he inevitably started to top the podium at major international events.

He claimed the Red Bull Hare Scramble title in 2012, which he went on to successfully defend in 2013, along with taking victory at Red Bull Sea to Sky. In 2014 he took wins at Battle of Vikings and Red Bull Romaniacs. But it was in 2015 that he really took it to the next level when he came within one victory of achieving a Hard Enduro grand slam by winning The Tough One, Red Bull Romaniacs, Red Bull Hare Scramble, Hell’s Gate and Red Bull 111 Megawatt. He also took third at the 2015/16 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship. However, a broken leg sustained in the penultimate round of the World Championship forced him to sit out most the 2016 season. He returned in style though, winning his second Red Bull 111 Megawatt in a row in 2016, before adding a third consecutive trophy a year
