Biker boys

Jamie and I fly off tomorrow teatime for our second annual Relentless International North West 200 boys' weekend.

If you haven't heard of the North West before, then I'm very disappointed.

And if you have, you'll already know it's the world's fastest motorcycle road race which just so happens to take place around the hallowed tarmac of Coleraine, Portstewart and Portrush on the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland.

The second and final practice session starts at 10am on Thursday, with the races themselves running throughout Saturday - and you can watch all the action online via the BBC website (there's even red button coverage on race day).

I'm no bike expert but I simply adore this event, now officially the biggest outdoor sporting spectacle in Ireland with an estimated 160,000 spectators expected to line the nine-mile circuit on Saturday should the sun choose to shine.

We're back on Sunday - probably with heavy colds.
