Rea explains move from IoM

Return to NI for family reasons

Jonathan Rea has been explaining why he and his family have moved back to Northern Ireland from the Isle of Man.

The triple World Superbike champion has told Ulster TV they decided to go home ahead of his elder son starting school, and so they could be closer to the rest of their family.

The Reas have spent the last few years living in Castletown, as Jonathan began to dominate World Superbikes.

He's won the last three titles and is well on course for a fourth consecutive one, during a season in which he has surpassed Carl Fogarty's total number of WSBK race wins.
