Episode 740: Cloudy with a Chance of Great Racing!


Jim and Rich break down the racing from Catalunya. The Moto3 race was a real thriller that had a bonkers last lap. Another last corner lead change saw Alonso take his second victory of the season and Oncu get penalized. In Moto2 the intrigue was great as the race had three distinct parts. Dixon rode a calculated race to grab a victory and Acosta increased his points lead. In the MotoGP sprint race Aprilia scored a victory at Espargaro's home track. On Sunday a crazy first corner crash and a violent high side in from of the entire pack by Bagnaia left hearts in mouths. In the restarted race Aleix would win again after passing his teammate Maverick. It was Aprilia 's first double podium in history. What a great weekend of racing!

Jim and Rich finally are able to get together to record a show! We apologize for the long gap but Rich was "pushing water uphill" and Jim was burning the candle at both ends. They guys spend the opening of the show talking about the rider silly season. They bring everyone up to speed on what they know to be true but then do what they do best, speculate where Pedro Acosta will ride next year. Silverstone race review is up next and what a cracking weekend that was. It was classic British summer and the Moto3 boys did not disappoint. Then it was the MotoGP riders turn and that race was a good one as well. Moto2 ended the day with a new rider leading the points. Moving on to the Austria round the guys are excited about the Moto3 race as the last lap was one of the best of the season so far. With the excitement of Moto3 over the Moto2 class produced a surprise winner. What would the MotoGP race have to offer? Well nothing sadly. Grab a cold beer as this show is quite a long one!

Episode 735: Racing from Assen


After a few weeks off Jim and Rich reunite to discuss the Assen round. Moto3 was a barnstorming affair that saw ten riders battling it out for the podium places. In Moto2 Rich gets emotional,as much as a Brit can, reliving Jake Dixon's first win. The MotoGP race was a Ducati feast. Aprilia look better, Binder has issues with track limits and of course both Rich and Jim rant on about the horrendous penalties or lack thereof from the race stewards.

Episode 733: Racing Returns


Jim and Rich come together after a three week break to review the racing racing from Mugello. While the racing was not classic Mugello there was plenty on Rich and Jim's minds. First they cover listener feedback (Sorry Bernie). Then they tackle silly season rumors about Zarco, Martin, Marc Marquez, and the possibility that both Honda and Yamaha will leave MotoGP. Of course the racing action was blighted by the stewards and the random dishing out of penalties. Moto3 was the best race and Oncu is still looking for that first win. Moto2 was a master class by Pedro Acosta and his post race celebration was equally classic. Finally Bagnaia did the double and was truly in a class by himself. Zoom, Zoom....
