Biker banned after 103mph wheelie

Police van captures the extraordinary footage on the A63

A BIKER from Leeds has been banned after being caught pulling a 103mph wheelie.

Lukasz Wisniewski, 26, of Firth Avenue, Leeds, was filmed by police pulling the stunt on the A63 near Selby, in June of this year.

Wisniewski rode straight past a clearly visible police camera van, which captured the entire incident.

North Yorkshire Police have released the footage after Wisniewski appeared at Selby Magistrates Court last week - he admitted to dangerous driving. He was banned for twelve months, ordered to take an extended driving test, and has been given a community order including 200 hours of community service.

North Yorkshire's Inspector Dave Brown said: 'Wisneiwski should be thankful that he is still here to face a ban and a community order. His riding showed complete disregard for his safety and that of other people.'
