    4:50 long video and Matt didn't laugh, fall, or not clip in. He must have matured since his GCN days.

    I've already booked a place to stay. If I get to meet Matt I honestly think I'd have a little cry before sleeping that night, and not to brag it anything but I've been go karting with Wayne Rooney. That's what A legend Matt is.

    Damn, Sigma Sport channel is even more Brit biased than GCN, Good Lord… Like the world champ is more of an event because it is in Yorkshire…
