The four-year-old sports maniac drives a mini car, a motorcycle, skis and does trampolining

While most kids are just day-dreaming about riding a motorbike, Ukrainian Tima Kuleshov started riding a bicycle before he was two-years-old and graduated to a mini motorbike at just two and a half.

Kuleshov is supported by his passionate parents Alexander and Victoria

Tima’s dad Alexander said: “Tima went on a bicycle for the first time at one year 11 months, only at this age was he able to get to the pedals. At one year we gave him a Strider balance bike.

He began riding a bicycle before he was two-years-old and started competing in motorcycle competitions before he was four

“He loves speed and attention, just like every child, but he does not brag to anyone, Tima does not even say that he is a motorcyclist.”

The daredevil's fastest motorcycle tops 45mph

The modest motorcyclist’s proud parents Alexander and Victoria say that their little thrill seeker can test their nerves but, as his other hobbies include trampolining and skiing, they know that his need for speed is not letting up.

Kuleshov holds the records for Ukraine's youngest motorcyclist

Alexander added: “Yes, we are worried that he is riding a motorcycle, but in this life a bad thing can happen regardless of who you are or what you are doing!”

The daring child now struggles to find decent competition amongst his age group

Tima’s fastest motorcycle reaches 72km - or 45mph - and he has participated in children’s moto competitions in Ukraine and in Russia, however, he is struggling to find any real competition amongst his age group.

Despite his impressive skills Tima does not tell many people about his accomplishments

Alexander said: “He started participating from one year in bicycle competitions and often takes first place. In Ukraine, Tima does not have competitors, it’s a great pity.”
