Motorcycle enthusiasts had the chance to meet a teenage Superbikes rider in Bedford.
Craven Motorcycles, in Alexandria Road, welcomed 14-year-old Louis Valleley and his team Cresswell Racing, based in Derbyshire, to the shop where visitors could meet and talk to them and take a look at his British superbike Ktm RC 125.
Jason Craven, who has been running the shop for five years, said the teenage British Superbikes rider has a real future ahead of him.
Louis is from Maidstone but has family in Bedford, and he has been signed up by Cresswell, with partnership support from Craven Motorcycles.
Jason said: “Louis is a future star and he has been doing very well.”
Despite terrible weather on Saturday, January 4, the day proved a real success, with Louis taking part in photo sessions and signing posters.
Jason said: “Visitors took full advantage to talk to a future star and the team about the racing Louis has done and also it was a very special day for myself going into partnership with Cresswell Racing, hoping to bring new champions to the BSB and looking for new talent.”
Craven plan to host another event in April before the race season gets underway.
