    no mate,there wasnt to many there early on due to theweather being crap,and not many goin on track at that point cos it kept raining.most folk were around the trade stands,but i prefer watching the track action.
    cameras not good enough to capture a moving bike,they all came out blurred.lol

    so i just got a few of the track while it was quiet.

    Wheelies galore over the mountain (tiny hill but a steep one )

    The "our lass" is a slang term for err indoors, the bird or the misses

    Haa bloody northerners

    was a good day though bud apart from the bit of rain (ITS SPITTING "peter Kay Legend")
    made for good viewing though on the trails stunt section got a bit slippy for the poor fookers

    Was gutted i missed out on the world record thing though, on a lighter note i still got me little green wrist band and therefore told all me mates i got on the track lmao!!! its as good as plus i was faster then rossi in my version of the story

    Ahhh i tell ya one thing im sure everyone that went to bike fest noticed this

    Pull into donny park slow as fook ride like a 90 year old over all the loose gravel bearing in mind the temp gauge is sky rockerting so ya twitchy as super twitchy thing Then ya finnally get to the one steward, Great he asks for the money for the ticket! soo ya stick it into neutral take ya gloves off, undo ya jacket, get ya wallet out, get ya cash out, pay the steward he in return gives you the ticket! you then put the ticket back in ya wallet so it doesnt get lost, put ya wallet back in ya jacket, zip it up,get ya gloves back on then stick it into gear,! Right then ya finnally ready to go bearing in mind ya gooch is cooking like an italian salami and ya temp gauge is nearly into 3 figures! ya now get going "dont forget about the loose gravel"
    ya get a maximum of 10-15 yards along and ya get stopped the second Steward says "Tickets please" are you for real! ARGHHHHH soooo back into neutral, gloves off, ya can see where im going with this what a ball ache honest to god couldnt belive it, but all was good in the end
