AN UP-AND-COMING motorbike star has been learning from the very best, the Morecambe Missile John McGuinness.

Seventeen-year-old Karl Geary, from Westgate, has been in training with the Isle of Man TT legend before his supermoto season starts next month with new team D3 Racing.

Karl’s dad, Karl Senior, said: “I’ve known John for many years so they went motorcross training in the winter.

“My son’s doing what I never got the chance to do.

“We’re hoping he can make a career out of it but it’s so financially expensive.

“Riding for D3 is quite a big step. They’re doing a lot to promote him.”
