    You challenge the officer in the same way you are asking the question here. You might want to question the officer as to how he could tell you were doing 40MPH -- which might be difficult doing a wheelie -- when he was so far away. Quite likely it will be reduced if it isn't dismissed, but there are many variables that can come into play.
