MOTORBIKE racer Kyle Wilks showed up at Sainsbury’s, in Farlington, to urge people to wear helmets on the road.

The 18-year-old, teammember of Pr1mo Bournemouth Kawaski, was in the store in a bid to encourage bikers – particularly the young – to be safe while out riding.

It was part of the company’s joint campaign with charity Headway Portsmouth to increase safety awareness to motorbike riders.

Scores of people had the chance to meet the rider, chat to him, and even get pictures on his bike while he was in the store.

Despite his tender age, Kyle has already achieved a number of impressive titles, including taking third place at the Dynomite pitbike championship in 2009 and winning the championship the year after.
