Episode 724: Did Anyone Read the Rule Book?


Scott Bolton joins Jim to talk about the Daytona 200. The action was intense and had plenty of draft passes. Controversy erupted late in the race when Herrin and Escalante collided at T1. A few quick laps later and a red flag created even more chaos! Extra laps were added to the race making it the longest 200 ever at 217 miles! Lapped riders were given laps back causing everyone including Greg White and Jason Pridmore to wonder what was going on. Truth is that all the drama could have been avoided if the teams had just read the rule book. Remember please like and subscribe to the show and donate if possible. Zoom, Zoom.....

Episode 723: What's a Penalty?


Jim returns from holiday and joins Rich to discuss the racing from Argentina. Penalties for irresponsible riding we the main topic of discussion as the consistency of the stewarding was again called into question. As far as the racing goes we learned that Brad Binder is also a "Saturday Man" following his Sprint victory on Saturday on a damp but drying racetrack. Sunday's wet race action in Moto3 was incredible as we may have witnessed the rise of a new wonderkid in the name of David Almansa. Moto2 was won by Tony Arbolino after Aron Canet jumped the start and finally the MotoGp class saw a first time winner in Marco Bezzecchi. Bezz lead every lap and Johann Zarco rode through the pack to finish second while Marquez (Alex) had his first MotoGp podium.

In this episode Rich and Jim had the pleasure of talking to Maddie Patterson (nee Scordia) about MotoGP. Maddi is a journalist working in the MotoGP paddock and gave us some incredible insight into the inner workings of the sport we love. We talk about the product, the riders personalities, sprint races, and many other topics. Maddi was gracious enough to give us over 90 minutes of her time and we can't thank her enough. Jim wants to mention that Maddi was in the hotel lobby on dodgy WiFi and there are some points where she breaks up for a second or two. Also there is some background noise that can be heard as well.
