    Hi all, Heres a link for a petition a mate set up for Toby Price to receive a major sports award.

    At time of writing it has nearly 5000 signatures. Please sign and share. Cheers Matt

    Below is a post from the bloke that set it up.

    After seeing a comment on Toby Price's insta feed that "someone should nominate him for sportsman of the year" I thought, I'm someone. However I couldn't find any info on how to make this happen, so I enlisted the help of long-time family friend and moto journalist Mark Hinchliffe, aka the Motorbike Writer. Turns out the public can't nominate anyone for a sports award, but the Sport Minister can, so Mark has set up a petition to get Toby nominated for the Don Award, (for a sports person who most inspired the nation). No motorsport identity has yet won the award, so lets see if we can get Toby another first. Please sign and share the petition to get a great sportsman, and genuinely decent human, the recognition he deserves.

    Over in the Racing Forum it was mentioned that his mullet was more of a mane.

    That has some merit...

    Well you have to admit, Ash has a much better hairdresser than Toby. Must have counted for something.

    Double Dakar Rally champion Toby Price has missed out on the prestigious Don Award which has gone to tennis player Ash Barty.

    The Dakar is a gruelling rally that has claimed the lives of 24 competitors since it started in 1978. It is referred to as the toughest motorsport event in the world.

    So how many tennis players have died in the pursuit of a world championship? :hmmmmm

    Sadly, ask anyone in the street who Ash Barty or Prick Kygios is and they will know, but outside of the motorcycle world old Toby doesn't exist.
