Watch: Jonathan Rea explains why he could have a chance of winning BBC SPOTY

Jonathan Rea isn't normally one for a flutter but he might make an exception after his third successive World Superbikes title. He didn't make the shortlist for BBC Sports Personality of the Year in either 2015 or 2016, despite grabbing the world crown.
