My name is Kyle McKinley Lamon. I was born in Havelock, NC. I come from a broken home and have faced many challenges in my life. In August of 2012, I joined the US ARMY as an airborne infantryman. I deployed in 2013 to Kosovo where I did over 250 reconnaissance and surveillance missions. I started riding bulls when I was 19 years old. I've played many sports but bull riding has made me stress and worry free. It's more than just a sport for me. To me, it is an escape from the troubles of this world. I've ridden in many sanctions including; PBR TPD, SRA, NCA, NJBRA, SEBRA, and SSBR. SAYiWON’T is my motto for life! I was told that my life would never have any meaning and that I would never amount to anything. For a very long time I accepted that. However, I've since found a drive within myself that I never knew existed! In any life challenge that I now face, I always maintain a SAYiWON'T attitude… I know in my heart that hearing someone tell me that pushes me harder and drives me to even greater success! The hardest challenge I've faced in my life is one that not many have faced. When I was 16 my biological mother left me for her 4th husband to Oklahoma. I was all alone trying to find a place to stay and finish high school. For a long time I blamed myself, and was even told it was my fault by her. I didn't know where to turn. I knew I wanted to join the Army and wouldn't let anyone or anything keep me from that! I pushed hard to finish school and graduated. I joined the Army right out of high school and was immediately a successful infantryman. I've earned multiple ribbons including Army Achievement Medal & Army Accommodation Medal. I let the challenge of being told I could never amount to anything put a fire in my eyes and heart to strive for success. If I could describe myself in one word it would be "perseverance". No matter what happens in my life I will always push myself with a SAYiWONT attitude!


Bull riding is a lifestyle and a passion for me… It’s more than just 8 seconds, it's a lifetime!
