MotoPod, The Motorcycle Roadracing Podcast, is an internet radio show dedicated to MotoGP and motorcycle racing news, interviews, commentary, opinion and rumour! Our primary focus is MotoGP, the premier class of the FIM World Championship Motorcycle Grand Prix Road Racing Series but we often have occasional sidetrips into the world of the FIM SBK World Superbike, Supersport and many other forms of two wheeled motorsport including Real Roads racing. Find out what’s going on in the sports that is the pinnacle of motorsports, Grand Prix Motorcycle Road Racing! New episodes every week.
Dave Neal is back for his first show with Harry Lloyd in the New Year. The news is starting to trickle out more and more and there's even been some motorbikes going around in circles! Sadly not a lot of circles as rain and the bitter cold kept many WSBK riders pit bound. Not happy with this season, we also look ahead at some plans that are bubbling up for 2016 and beyond.
Harry Lloyd brings MotoPod into 2015 with a splash of news from all around the motorcycling world. Things are slowly starting to ramp up ahead of testing and one or two manufacturers are maybe a little too keen with their testing plans… We also look back at some emails that sadly got lost under all the Christmas wrapping paper.
Dave Neal and Harry Lloyd are back for the last episode of 2014! It was an action packed couple of weeks with the Superprestigio and some of the worst kept secrets in BSB. Neil Morrison was on the ground for the end of year dirt track event in Barcelona and joins us to talk in depth about the event. The second edition of the Ring of Fire book club is here and there's some more homework for the new year.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal are back after a festive week off to talk WSBK testing. They ponder the decision to keep Honda as the lone engine supplier in Moto2 and look at the BSB news that trickled out from the recent bike show. Harry's fashion flash briefly returns, much to the horror of Dave. There's also a MotoPod announcement to help keep everyone warm over the winter.

2015 is underway as MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 get their first tests of the new season underway. MotoGP was fully timed and had some solid video content, sadly Moto2 and Moto3 weren't required to carry transponders so it's a bit of guess work there. Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal also chat Macau as racing truly comes to a close for the year. Jim Race has two interviews from Macau as well an anecdote about everyone's favourite AMA legend, Mat Mladin.
2014 is done and dusted for MotoGP. Moto3 was a thriller that came down to the wire and had drama throughout, could we have asked for better? Harry Lloyd defends the actions of Jack Miller post race while Dave Neal tries to reign the nationalism in just a little bit. We had the curse of championship liveries strike again with Rabat in Moto2 and Marquez became the winning-est rider in the premier class, or did he? Join us as we talk about one last race in 2014.
Martin Darlington reports in from the final round of the WSBK round in Qatar, he was one of dozens of attendees! Harry Lloyd also records some solo news and both touch on the elephant in the room known as team orders. Despite recording separately their views are oddly similar, be sure to write in to MotoPod if you want to share your thoughts. Now, one last race and championship to wrap up before the long cold winter….
Martin Darlington and Jim Race return to MotoPod in a blaze of glory. They're here to catch you up on a boiling race from Sepang, the rain stayed but maybe it would have been better wet! Tireless Tito's years of hard work were finally rewarded and Moto3 looks set to be a no gloves boxing match come Valencia. WSBK and MotoGP each have a round left, then the long winter awaits...
Len Padilla's silky smooth tones join Harry Lloyd to talk about one of the most dramatic weekends of the year. Bridgestone experimented with an asymmetric front tyre to try and combat Phillip Island's unique tyre demands, but there were mixed results. Is Phillip Island MotoGP's Daytona? We also explore how 249+1 = 46 as it all goes right for Rossi once again.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal return to talk Motegi. There's not much news this week, but all three of the MotoGP Championships have a rider with a hand firmly on the trophy. Plenty of talk about the races, especially the dramatic Moto3 battle and the incredible pace in the MotoGP race. We have two massive interviews this week, the first with EuroSport's Steve Day to talk everything WSBK. Jim Race and Mark Miller reunite to talk Macau, at least for a little bit…
