Stormont reception for double champion Rea

Double World Superbikes Champion Jonathan Rea has been welcomed home with a special reception at Stormont.

The Ballyclare rider claimed back-to-back titles this year, becoming the first man to do so in nearly 20 years.

"I had an amazing two years, so to come here and be recognised back in Belfast, where the dream started, is so nice," he told UTV.

Sports Minister Paul Givan said it was an honour to celebrate Rea's achievement.

“In order to win a world championship, a rider needs fantastic skills levels but also drive, determination, commitment and a strong nerve," said the minister.

"Jonathan has certainly demonstrated this on numerous occasions and for him to win back to back championships is an incredible achievement."
