Rea not tempted to ride in TT

Superbike champion loves watching races

Three-time world superbike champion Jonathan Rea says he loves attending the Isle of Man TT  - but that it is a "completely different" sport to racing on short circuits.

The racer - who's an Island resident - has been watching the racing this week and says he believes Michael Dunlop, who now has 17 TT wins, is capable of beating the event record of 26 victories set by his late uncle Joey. 

Speaking to BBC Northern Ireland, he said whilst he loves watching the TT - he wouldn't want to take part.
