Episode 550: Our Man In Qatar

The name is Darlington, Martin Darlington and he is MotoPod's man on the inside at the final MotoGP test in Qatar.
Skyler Vickroy finds out who fell victim to his seductive questioning and what secrets they let slip in the process.

Episode 548: 2018 Season About to Launch .. Standby

Skyler Vickroy and Jim McDowell review what we've learnt from the three days of MotoGP testing at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Thailand. Honda are up and Yamaha seem down while Ducati show promise.
And before the first World Superbike race of the season this weekend at Phillip Island they cover the final two day test. Any surprises or will Johnny Rea be ruling the roost come Sunday evening? Skyler and Jim put their bets on the table with some bold predictions for this weekend.

Episode 547: Place Your Bets!

With the current odds of Marquez at 11/10 and Lorenzo at 6/1, Jim McDowell and Derek Cabrera sit down to discuss their favourite title contenders for 2018 and Lorenzo's chances on the improving Ducati. They catch up on all the two wheeled news hitting the headlines for the week and review the recent Moto3 & Moto2 testing from Jerez where Bastianini & Bagnaia finished Tuesday on top. Then settle in, as we round off the show with the remaining interviews from Phil Hall at the Phillip Island Classic.

Episode 546: Make MotoAmerica Great Again!

Skyler Vickroy and Scott Bolton mount up, disable the electronic rider aids and roar on to the internet airwaves with a bumper packed show.
They chew the fat on all the latest road racing news, before moving onto to an in depth look at the upcoming 2018 MotoAmerica season.
Our intrepid MotoPod reporter down under, Phil Hall brings us the first part of a collection of interviews from the 25th Australian Motorcycle News International Island Classic held at the Phillip Island Circuit.

Episode 543: Looking forward to 2018

Jim McDowell and Skyler Vickroy bring us the first of our off season shows. With only the top handful of WorldSBK rides sorted out and most of MotoAmerica and BSB still up in the air, there’s plenty to talk through! We also had a big WorldSBK and MotoGP test and despite the changes, a certain triple-champion was still very very quick. Len Padilla also returns to the show to chat to soon-to-be MotoGP Pit Lane reporter Simon Crafar. Of course, Crafar also has a couple of other notches on his belt to talk about as well…

Episode 542: That Elbow

Ronald Ten Kate: 01:11:23
Yigit Top: 01:26:32

Jim McDowell and Martin Darlington see the season out in fine style. Valencia was always going to be a tough one for Desmo Dovi, but he gave it his all as always. If only Lorenzo hadn’t meddled, or did he? Either way, Marquez tried to give Dovi a chance of snatching the title with another mind-bending mid-race save - not today Mr Rules of Physics, not today. As is seemingly always the case, Pedroda’s heroics out the front went largely unnoticed as one of MotoGP’s most fascinating and hard fought season draws to a close.
