A trials rider who will attempt to wheelie around the TT Course admits that it's going to be a bigger challenge than he first thought.

Dougie Lampkin - who is a 12-time World Trials Champion - will set off from the Grandstand at 5pm tomorrow, and will have two hours to complete a lap of the Snaefell Mountain Course on one wheel.

The lap had originally been scheduled to take place today, but high winds have forced Lampkin to delay the challenge.

Red Bull TV will broadcast the attempt live, while a rolling road closure in the direction of the course will be applied.

Ahead of the postponement, the 40-year-old admitted windy conditions on the mountain could be a big problem.
