Ted Brady works with the Fire Service at Cork Airport, but is also the record holder for the world's fastest motorcycle wheelie.
In 2017, he was at the Motorcycle Wheelie World Championship in the UK when he set the Guinness World Record.
He achieved a wheelie of over one kilometre with a speed of 350.595 km/h.
Ted told Moncrieff this is something he has been following since he was a child.
"I was always interested in bikes growing up," he said.
"My Dad would have had an interest, would have gone to certain events - apart from that it was wired into me anyway.
"It just was the thing I loved and from a very young age.
"Wheelies just happened to come along the way and I seemed to have an aptitude for it".
'Speed is the next part'
Ted said he headed for the Isle of Man in the early 1990s to compete - "I did OK, but I didn't win anything," he said.
"I followed it on then from 2005; there was an event in England, above in Yorkshire.
"This was a real good test, because the test was you had to wheelie for one kilmometre, 0.6 of a mile.
"Your speed is tracked going out over the finish line, and that's where it gets really hard.
"Wheelie is one thing, but the speed is the next part.
"Once you do the kilmetre on the back wheel, and your speed is at a certain point going over the finish line, you're then heading for the records".
'Wind is a huge factor'
Ted said it's more than just the wheelie.
"The next thing is trying to manage a kilometre on the back wheel," he said.
"It's not like being on two wheels, obviously - the wind is a huge factor.
"The wind can be lovely at the start, and the wind can change in a second.
"You're trying to then manage your RPMs going down the runway, because you could red line very fast... and keep the wheel in the air at the same time.
"There's a balancing act in so many different ways".
Ted said he's contemplating going back to best his own record.
"I haven't been there since 2019," he said.
"I'm actually just in talks now again of thinking of going back in '24 maybe and trying to break my own record," he added.
