'Emotional' Ballyclare return for Rea

Three time World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea says he has surpassed all of his expectations and dreams after returning home to Ballyclare.

Rea, 30, received a hero's welcome at the Sixmile Leisure Centre, where a crowd of supporters had gathered to celebrate his achievement of becoming the first rider to win three titles in a row.

"It was the first time I got really choked up about the whole thing," Rea said, "the support has been overwhelming."
