The vote for the 2018 MCN Racer of the Year has now opened! After a mega year of racing across the board, MCN’s panel of experts saw fit to extend the public vote to seven nominees, featuring riders across seven different racing disciplines.
World Superbike king Jonathan Rea was crowned last year’s winner and the Ulsterman once again features on the list of nominees, but he faces tough competition from now five-time MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez, British champion Leon Haslam and Isle of Man TT lap record holder Peter Hickman.
The ‘Man of the year’ award becomes ‘Racer of the year’ in 2018, after Ana Carrasco’s historic feat in clinching the FIM World Supersport 300 championship, becoming the first woman to win a solo motorcycling world title.
After storming to their second world championship and fifth consecutive TT win, the Birchall brothers represent the three-wheeled world while 2013 MCN Man of the year Tai Woffinden returns to the shortlist after clinching his third Speedway world crown this year.
- Ana Carrasco
- Ben & Tom Birchall
- Leon Haslam
- Peter Hickman
- Marc Marquez
- Jonathan Rea
- Tai Woffinden
