A NORTH Pembrokeshire mum has died after falling from her bike on a race track.

Laura Davies was well-known on the motorbike circuit in Pembrokeshire and beyond. The mum of three fell from her Yamaha R1 bike during an event on Sunday, July 7.

Laura, 39, who had recently raised a significant amount of money for the Welsh Air Ambulance, was airlifted to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff at around 5.45pm on Sunday.

Unfortunately, she did not survive her injuries. No other rider was involved in the incident.

An official statement from Phil Bevan and Alan Holland of Phil Bevan, Trackdays, released last night, said:

“It is with an extremely heavy heart that we must inform you that due to an incident on Sunday’s Event (7th July ) one of our riders, Laura Davies (39) has passed away.
