Yuvraj Konde Deshmukh, a 13-year-old motocross prodigy from India, will become the youngest and the first Indian to participate at the World Motocross Championship Juniors in Australia in the category of FIM MX Juniors (85cc) in August. Yuvraj is also the youngest participant ever.

Yuvraj started riding and executing breathtaking stunts from when he was three and a half years old. With the support of his parents, Yuvraj began his professional motocross racing journey at the age of nine and has never looked back.

Despite facing some life-threatening injuries over his seven-year career, Yuvraj has remained fearless and been dedicated to the sport.

His inimitable qualities and a roster of wins at such a nascent age caught the attention of Rustom Patel and Atul Ajmera, the head coach chairman, respectively, of I-land racing academy.

With the support of his parents and world-class coaches and training methods, Yuvraj has now become a force to reckon with in his chosen sport.
