MCN Fantasy Road Race: John Reynolds’ team

1 of 1

There are only a handful of days to go to get your MCN Fantasy Road Race in association with Bennetts Insurance team in place, ahead of this weekend’s opening round of the World Superbike championship!

Stuck for suggestions on just who’s going to do the business in 2016? Fear not, because we’ve talked to some of the biggest names in racing to get their views on just who they’d have in place were they a team manager (and only most of them picked themselves!).

  • Vinales
  • Espargaro
  • Rea
  • Camier
  • Bridewell
  • Kiyonari

A few seasons ago, sticking with Suzuki brand loyalty might have been a mad move for three-time MCE British Superbike champion John Reynolds. But, with a resurgent Suzuki squad in MotoGP led by next-big-thing Maverick Viñales and backed up by Aleix Espargaro, he might be onto something; as recent testing showed.

In BSB, the pairing of Kiyonari and Bridewell could well be in the mix not only for race wins but also for title glory, while with no Suzuki option in WSBK, reigning champion and 2016 favourite Jonathan Rea is a strong pick. Former Suzuki rider Leon Camier rounds out John’s six.

If you haven’t selected your team yet, you’ve got until Friday evening before the first round of World Superbikes kicks off! Click here to enter your’s now!
