Luke Benstead, who is currently second in the British Motocross Championship, is due to compete at Lyng on Sunday.

But his bike, worth over £8,400, was stolen last night (Wednesday) from Johnson's Garage in Elm Low Road, Wisbech, where it was being services ready for racing by Luke's dad John.

Luke, who has been competing in the dare-devil sport, for over 13 years, said missing this weekend's racing could jeopardise his chances in the league and lose him prize money.

The 450cc engine bike is mostly white with some yellow graphics and has the number 190 on it.

Thirty-one-year Luke said: "We think it was taken sometime between 1am and 7am. They look as if they have wheeled it away as I have followed the tracks across a field. It could be somewhere close by.

"I think if they were going to drive off with it they would have done that straight away and gone straight down the A47. The police have been called.

"I'm offering a reward for information for the return of the bike. People can call me on 07776445956 - they don't need to give their name if they would rather remain anonymous - I just want the bike back so I can compete on Sunday."
