NI Blogs Admin | 14:49 UK time, Friday, 26 February 2010

Each year we pester a rider and team to let us film their preparations for the NW200. In 2007 we focused on the TAS Relentless Suzuki team and last year we followed James McCann.

For 2010 we thought we'd annoy two riders: Englishman, Guy Martin, who has signed for local team Wilson Craig Racing and local man Stephen Thompson, who will ride for the English based MSS Colchester Kawasaki team.

We have given both riders small video cameras to capture behind the scenes footage of the various pre NW200 racing, testing and general shenanigans that these guys will get up to before the showdown on the north coast of Northern Ireland in May.

At the BBC NI NW200 press launch (23rd  Feb) we caught up with Stephen who answered a few bike related questions.

As always please add your thoughts to the blog.

We braved the travel chaos caused by the Icelandic Volcano eruption to get a chance to chat to Guy while he and team boss Wilson Craig revealed their new bikes at Silverstone.

The Kirmington man was in great form arriving in a casual look and helping himself to plenty of cups of tea during his numerous press and media interviews. We asked him all manner of questions, but you'll not want to miss his answer to what two things he'd take to a desert island. Watch the interview below

Ladies and Gentlemen we give you Mr Guy Martin....
