Bernard Kerr REALLY wants that tiger!!

Bernard Kerr REALLY wants that tiger!!
my uh good friend

bernard

kerr

obviously qualified in third so this i think this is his highest qualifying position this was very exciting i early on in the race i looked at that hot seat and i was like me that is a podium hot seat you got lorry up there you got not early on the race but you know it was it was sort of like maybe to the top 20 20 or something yeah you got you got something that it's funny how the hot seat evolves it like starts resembling something that you can imagine

really

being

really

sticking doesn't it yeah when you put lorry up there you put who else was in there danny yeah danny danny had an amazing run didn't he yeah finn so yeah stop putting these names up there they've not qualified that well but this is the sharp end and it's there's still 20 riders to go so i was just thinking you know there's part of me it's been a

really

long time watching my friends race world cups a

really

really

long time since i i've been watching and sports fanning since it was live timing before there was any video of it yeah so i've i've had a lot of over the years i've had a lot of uh it's brought me a lot of joy but you know with anything it largely brings you disappointment

really

you know sport yeah kind because sport in order for you to get a win most of the time you have to take 90 loss don't you you know in order to get a win you yeah i don't know so like i just think how many times people stand on on that...
bernard kerr really wants that tiger
podium but then never get on there again yeah you know hundreds of races and never get there again so yeah yeah that's it and and over the years it's sort of like because i'm very invested and obviously spend a lot of time with but basically i'm talking about brandon

bernard

because they're some of my closest friends i spend a lot of time riding with them and i live

really

close to them and i know work goes in so it's like you are invested because you've been there for the build-up like it blows my mind they ride down this i'll ride with them every day and i and i'm nowhere near you know i wouldn't wouldn't i'd be a long way off qualifying i'd be like i'd be like 20 seconds off qualifying and i just think i'll write down the same tracks as you like how are you how are you getting this pace so i'm i am super invested but there's part of me that just has to like protect that investment third man down from the end and i'm just sat there thinking you know it's not looking good it's looking like a track that if you push on you're going down it looks like across the board particularly how i ride if i'm pushing i'm pumping more there's more weight going through the tires and you're more likely to get caught out by these shitty little pointy sticky horrible so yeah i'm i'm on this is as edge of your seat racing as possible i mean i'll be honest i stood up just i didn't...
bernard kerr really wants that tiger
know what was going on when bernie came down into the hot seat it was like hell you know this could be the one dude for sure what did he came down third right third last yeah third last yeah so it was so he had looked in the preller diddy was it the pillow i don't want to get wrong but yeah at that point i was like hell someone from the surrey hills i love the surrey hills but it does not closely resemble what they were riding down there in snowshoe so yeah i was thinking me

bernard

kerr

is going to dude it was 16 in there holy when he came through and he'd actually done it and he looked you know i'm trying to win a world cup race didn't he he looked solid dude you know he looked super smooth he was i love it obviously bernie's got unprecedented style anyway he's probably arguably one of the most stylish guys on the bike but he was he was uh i feel like he let his moto side come through even more than normal for me he was like hanging off the back of the bike more there was those like three jumps into like a left corner where he just looked like faster than everyone else i think there was a triple double there that laurie did and you knew when someone did that that they were yeah they certainly were wrong when you lose time in that section it was yeah so yeah it looked fantastic on the bike it did it looked like it looked

really

fluid and loose and yeah in control obviously it's funny the human mind is just like negative because i just watch him go...
bernard kerr really wants that tiger
down and i'm just thinking any minute now it's gonna up like you can't help it that is the edge of your seat feeling it's not a positive it's not a positive feeling it's a oh my god i so hope he doesn't up you know what i mean yeah yeah you're not thinking like because yeah well i mean go on burner but i'm thinking yeah especially with especially with those rock sections and stuff it only took your wheel going and a few mil to the left to the wrong side and that was it stall and then so many shoulder barges on that shitty tree on the left and the that was the big i was like he got past which didn't look slow though because some people were sort of like going into it and then putting the foot down and sort of like using it to hop around it didn't look slow it looked quite good to me to me yeah as soon as i got to that road i felt like whatever position they're in they could hold that position like like the probability was they were gonna put together a run there wasn't much time to be made up was no no no that section and then the jump down the hill and then yeah yeah there weren't much time to be made there at all no it was rad though yeah so he sat there um t-bolt deprilla i think was in second place qualifying i think it was completely up but yeah um he up anyways um second to last and then emery emery messed up early and i was just like oh my god

bernard

's gonna get a

tiger

you know he's gonna get attacked...
dude that tag is coming in hard his first split was one point something and i was just like he's actually gonna like this he's gonna be completely unbearable he's gonna be completely unbearable he's gonna be like dude i was just the same and and when you're watching a race like that and obviously i don't know that well but i know him well enough to be like super invested in this and just yeah extremely height and then yeah when you see a marine and it's annoying because you know that he's gonna he's not gonna up he's gonna put something down and it's kind of frustrating in it i hate that sometimes about sport but this is always that guy right the cream always rises to the top it's always before it was gwyn it was always there was always someone last in the start game that you knew was gonna have a hit and just come through and deliver something and yeah it i mean dude i'd anyone else in that start gate for that race it would have been better to watch if that makes sense you know i'd rather anyone else is in that start gate last than marie because he's so consistent and you know he's going to deliver highlights the for me emery just perfectly highlights the fact that at a certain age in life like like you just don't have doubt more you're more suited to sport it's why you get these characters like men are lebron they're like that's quite cool that i mentioned those two in the same but you know...
what i mean they're old and they can like they're old for the category and they can overcome all of the doubt and all of the stuff there's so much experience yeah it does happen when you're older because when you're young you just don't doubt anything like some of the stuff i did when i was younger on a bike i was just like i clearly had no regard for or or i had such strong sense of yes i'm going to make it that it just overruns everything like yeah that's when ours in our putting together runs and even like

bernard

's older now than he he was and certainly when you compare him to um amory it's like you said he's got some experience man i didn't i did just have a quick look on roots and rain he's done like 254 events on there a lot of time in the start game years it's got to be 10 years now right yeah i just thought it was so bad yeah yeah i'd have thought sorry on the world cup circuit 2000 and hang on his first world cup was in hang on this excuse me i stalled on this i think it was 2008. we should have yeah 2000. i think it was 2008 yeah we didn't qualify i didn't qualify i didn't qualify for a bunch of them so yeah 2008. yeah and those didn't qualify as they're all races that he's traveled out to he's camped he's got a caravan you know it's hard work to come to come 30th at world cup it's hard work to come dead last at world cup you know what i mean and yeah so over there...
probably even harder to come second i think so now you know when you watch um emery uh you watch emery in the start start heart and you just think wow what it is to be young you know being just yeah out of the gate all that confidence yeah all that confidence and he talks about the crash but he talks about his crash like a week prior or whatever it was yeah tell it doesn't

really

bother them that much yeah the ball is rolling dude yeah exactly it's just the ball is rolling he's rolling this is in the groove life is good he's earning money he's the best in the world at something cool isn't it fair play to him man i mean you can't take anything away from that win you know again being in that position being in the start last man down coming off the back of an injury a crash just insane it's a shame dude it's a shame there's a

tiger

out there that would have had a lovely home in the surrey hills and now yeah there is it's just it's just going to stay there with it have you spoken to

bernard

at all yeah amazing he must be stoked though man i mean to finally get that second place it's his first podium is it yeah i mean he he wrote i can't remember what he wrote to me i thought it was funny though he wrote it's something like um racing's actually super fun when you do well because you know you get the feeling that's like it is a slog if you if you're working that hard and not getting what you feel that you...
should get and he does feel that he should he is at the point the end if he gets outside of the top ten he's that's he's no longer

really

that stoked you know which is freaking cool isn't it just yeah even to just be in the position where you're not that stoked being outside the top ten yeah i remember when i was younger even like i'd come up to brain i'd be like yeah dude 14 that's so sick and he's like 14th are you kidding me yeah i think i think brent said that right on the recent episode that no one gives a if you're not winning or on the podium like it's just whatever you move on next race it's that that must be a tough thing dude i mean do you think that do you think bernie keeps the momentum yeah

really

tough do you think bernie keeps the momentum going into he's not gonna he's not gonna young man and yeah he's just got confident he's just got that little bit more confident and we're not we don't have a

tiger

no but we might as well he just got a world cup dude he's coming in hot maybe get another animal that's not as cool as a

tiger

that's like pretty cool get peacock bernie get let's get bernie a peacock peacock and a fur coat i could actually order one we could just get a peacock delivered to his house it could be quite funny yeah it could be quite cool but it could be quite funny but dogs will eat it let's not do it it's not good to publicly send people peacocks to their...
