Whyte grew up in a BMX-mad family and at the age of 14, he watched his older brother Tre claim a bronze medal at the 2014 BMX World Championships.
While the postponement of the Olympics saw Tre’s ambitions of attending Tokyo 2020 ended, Kye travelled to Japan and won a shiny silver.
He has been riding BMX bikes since the age of three and has taken home a number of British titles.
His greatest achievement before Tokyo was the silver medal he picked up at the inaugural European Championships in Glasgow in 2018.
Whyte finally a realised a family ambition by representing Team GB in the men’s BMX Supercross at Tokyo 2020.
After winning his silver, the team man cheered on training partner Bethany Shriever to gold as the duo dominated the event and made history.
