A British biker has been killed while practising for a Dubai desert rally.

Allan Lally, 36, from Dumbarton was riding alongside another rider when he fell from his bike and died instantly.

Speaking to the scottish Sun, close friend of Lally, Stuart Macaulay, said: “Allan was always 100 per cent committed to anything he did.

“He took part in the Desert Challenge last year and was training for the 2008 event with his friend Chris Jackson when the accident happened. This was his first endurance training session. All we know is that he fell off his bike and died instantly.”
