Josh Close

Sports Reporter

Motorcycle racing enthusiast Josh joined the MCN team in 2019. He studied Sports Journalism at the University of Sunderland, leaving with a 2:1 and a Gold Standard Diploma in Journalism from the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).

Introduced to the world of motorcycle racing by his dad as a youngster, Josh became a fan of MotoGP, WorldSBK and BSB. Like many, Josh became a huge Valentino Rossi supporter…little did he know that years later he would ask a question or two to the man himself.

Whilst Josh has worked on a number of features, exclusive interviews, and news articles across all racing disciplines, he spends the majority of his time covering BSB and travels across the country to each race meeting.

He’s been put through his paces too - Working out at the gym with the Lowes Twins and racing against BSB stars on the Go Kart track. He tells us that he won…we don’t believe him!
