Episode 770: Looking Back On Mugello

2024-06-17

Jim and Rich catch up to talk through the races that took place at the classic Mugello circuit in Italy. As well as the races, there was the bombshell news from Ducati and Aprilia so the guys spend time on the ins and outs of the contractual movements and speculate on what this means for riders and teams elsewhere up and down the pitlane. As for the races, in MotoGP Pecco reigned supreme, in Moto2 Joe Roberts showed that he remains a contender and in Moto3 Alonso ruled and now stands as clear favourite for the 2024 M3 title.

Episode 768: Craziness at Catalunya!

2024-05-30

Jim rides solo on this one and reports on the Catalan GP. This weekend's racing seemed backwards as the Moto3 race was the calmest of the weekend and we had two wild races in the MotoGP Class. The Moto3 race was won by Alonso after smooth ride to the front and riding the best last sector than anyone else. Moto2 was a wild race with the ugly onset of track limits causing many riders to have to take the long lap penalty loop. The most infamous of these penalties caused Aldeguer to crash in the long lap loop! Roberts had a track limits penalty and finished down the field, losing even more ground to Garcia. The best part of this race was that Ogura won after a 2 year drought. Finally two very crazy MotoGP races started off with Aliex retiring from the sport, winning a sprint race that no one wanted to win and then missing the podium in the Sunday main. Acosta crashed out again and Marc Marquez rode from 14th to 3rd on a soft rear. Oh, did I mention that Raul Fernandez had a career best finish in 6th for Trackhouse? Can't wait for Mugello!

Episode 767: Magnifique Martin

2024-05-15

Jim and Rich cover all the news and the racing from Lemans. The big was the rules that were released for the 2027 MotoGP season. Then some WSBK news and then a quick MotoAmerica and Real Roads tidbits. The racing action was amazing at Lemans. In Moto3 Alonso was up to his old tricks and Jim waxes poetic about Pirelli tires. Moto2 built suspense through the entire race culminating in a fantastic last two laps. Sadly Joe Roberts podium streak and Championship lead ended. Rich them ponders why Aldeguer and others are struggling on the Pirellis. Lastly was the Motogp races and there was some incredible action in both races. Martin was awesome in taking both wins and Marc was second in both. Acosta looking decidedly pedestrian as he crashed out in the Sunday race, but Rich explains the real reason for the crash. The guys take the problem of which person to promote to the factory Ducati squad. This then causes al long foray into silly season. Finally a questions to the listeners, If Motogp bikes are slower than WSBK how do you slow the production bikes down? Write to MotoPod@motopodcast.com and let us know.

Jim and Rich have an early morning chat about the racing from Jerez. The Moto3 race was not the runaway everyone was thinking. Vier controlled the race and scored his first win of the season as Alonso rode his way back into the points after a crash. In Moto2 Jim gets all patriotic as Joe Roberts rode one of his best races to come from 11th to 2nd. Joe now leads the Moto2 World Championship. Lastly the guys talk about the MotoGP sprint and discuss whether the Sprint was actually a good exciting race or it was just a weird and wild race. In the Sunday race, Martin crashed, Pecco was unstoppable and Marc tried his best to win on the Ducati.

They talk about the building of the track and how soon it will be on the MotoGP calendar. (Please note the interview with Eric and John sound a little weird but there was so much background noise that I tried to reduce so the audio got a little metalic). Then a great 10 minutes with Joel Kelso talking about his thought son the Moto3 class. Last interview is with Dorna's CCO Dan Rosomondo. A great look into the sport we love from a man who knew nothing about bikes but is so completely hook now, as well as his two sons! Thanks to our new PayPal and Patron subscribers.
