ISLE OF WIGHT motorcycle trials star Becky Cook has been shortlisted for a national accolade.

Wightlink-sponsored Becky, of Brook, is in the running to be named one of the nation’s top 20 motorcycle icons, one of only four women to make the list.

In the last decade, Becky has won eight British titles, one European title, two best woman awards at the SSDT, four Trial des Nations wins and last year also won her first World Championship round.

The public can vote for their three favourites from the main list, past and present, and the final top 20 will be revealed at the forthcoming Motorcycle Story exhibition at The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, from May 14.

To vote for Becky, visit — your vote will also go into a prize draw for a family ticket to the 2014 British MotoGP.
