A HEREFORD teenager is proving a hit on the motorcycle stage.

Rhys Forrest, 15, came second in the F125cc Championship having only competed four out of six rounds.

And that wasn’t the only trophy the Whitecross High School pupil was awarded at a presentation dinner held by the East Midland Racing Association (EMRA).

The teen was also awarded best newcomer of the year, as well as the Edwina Overend Special Award Trophy.

Forrest rides an Aprilia 125cc bike that is prepared by his uncle, Steve Gammon.
