Double World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea says he was 'humbled' to be named as Cornmarket Enkalon Irish Motorcyclist of the Year for the fourth time at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast on Friday night.
Rea, who received a standing ovation from a sold-out audience of 550 guests, collected the 'iconic' Joey Dunlop Trophy in recognition of his achievements on the global stage.
"Hopefulyl young kids can take inspiration from what I have done and look up to me," said Rea after receiving the prize.
