The que isnt bad at all, you que up in a group but it's not a long wait.
Half the craic is waiting at the end of the road after your run, sitting round shite talking, smoking fags etc.
The Cork lads run a good show.

Unfortunately I wasn't a GoPro wanker back then.

And unfortunately no it was just the silly mistake of not paying attention and watching the other fellas wheelie and forgot to change gear.

Is there a separate "pussies class" for those using launch control and anti wheelie and other electronic shite, or are they allowed in with people who can ride?
