Episode 493: Life In The Old Goat Yet

109.1MB

Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal are back together again to talk about the Spanish GP. The worst thing you can do in racing is rule Valentino Rossi out and Jerez is proof of exactly why. It might not have been a nail biting race, but it was statistically Rossi’s most dominant race, he out Lorenzo-ed Lorenzo in his own backyard. But it was a group of much younger riders, and one South African one in particular, who caught the attention of everyone over the weekend. We also catch up with Scott Bolton as he gives us his view on MotoAmerica and how it is progressing in its second year.

Well who would have guessed that? Jorge Lorenzo will be riding a Ducati for the next two years as once again the MotoGP paddock struggles to keep a secret. There’s a lot of talk about 2017 already but of course there’s still plenty of racing to be had. Not only did Jorge Lorenzo reveal his plans, but Jonathan Rea also showed how he plans to become a double WSBK champion as he dominated in Assen. Rea may have done the double both all the races were stunning and have given Harry one or two ideas about how to make the best series ever. We also have a number of former World Championship riders chatting to Scott Bolton about the hope that MotoAmerica has given them.

Episode 491: Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

101.7MB

Martin Darlington and Dave Neal eventually get to talking about motorbike racing after a bit of an off-topic start to the show. We had another dramatic weekend in Austin where the unsurprising happened as Marc Marquez cleared off at the front, but behind a number of interesting things happened behind. The smallest man in the premier class came out of the weekend standing tall above everyone else. Unfortunately it came at the cost of the MotoGP’s unluckiest man, Andrea Dovizioso. BSB was also back on track for the first race of the season with a number of curious results but there’s still a long way to go, and the showdown system which always drag the season out just a little more.

Episode 490: I’m a Maniac, Maniac on the Last Corner

79.3MB

Harry Lloyd and Martin Darlington are back for a big one. Three races in Argentina and the WSBK round in Aragon has us almost struggle to fit it all in. Argentina once again produced some interesting results after another weather and tyres weaved a bit of chaos into Sunday. It caused some new stars to light up while others maybe shined a little too bright. Of course we also continue to look ahead to 2017 because silly season is really what it’s all about, right? While chaos ruled in South America, WSBK had a distinctly familiar feel to it. Racing is now well and truly back as as MotoAmerica and BSB are just about to starting spinning wheels in anger.

Episode 489: Drama in the Desert

Martin Darlington is sort of joined by Harry Lloyd to talk about the start of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship! The three races produced some predictable winners and one or two surprises as the start of Moto2 had everyone flicking through their rule book. Many thought the Michelins would see slower races but that worry was thrown at the window as they went seven seconds face

Episode 488: As Green As Ever

46.4MB

Harry Lloyd does it solo to catch you all up on the WorldSBK racing from Thailand. The racing may have been great in all three championships but once again a clear favourite is emerging for the title and he happens to be an Irish rider on a green bike. There’s still a long way to go till the end of the season so maybe Harry is counting his chickens before they’ve even laid the eggs… There’s also some Moto2 and Moto3 testing to catch up on from Qatar with a couple of surprises. Harry also rounds off the show with some no doubt wildly wrong predictions the year.

Just like racing, Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal are back for this week’s show. There isn’t too much in terms of news, but who cares when there are motorcycles back racing? Phillip Island once again got the WorldSBK season off to an exciting start with three great races. The question still remains over the two day format with fan opinion as divided as the racing! Jonathan Rea is back to his best despite the bike only being at 85%. Most importantly, the MCN Fantasy League is underway as well so be sure to join up before it’s too late. Unless you have more points than the hosts….

It’s finally almost here, WSBK have done all their testing and the first World Championship round of the year is just days away. Phillip Island was under heavy use as both MotoGP and WSBK performed tests there with one or two surprising results, and a couple of crashes. It’s not just the big bikes that have been out as Moto2 have also gotten their testing season underway in a number of private tests. All that and the usual news and gossip on the show.

Harry Lloyd sits down to talk about the Sepang test and some news odds and ends. Jorge Lorenzo looks to be the many to beat again in 2015 but it’s early days and Phillip Island should give us a better idea of who is where. A certain Australian may have impressed in Sepang, but he won’t be back on track at his home circuit. There may only be one regular host this week, but the final few Phil Hall interviews from the PI Classic are some of the best. Not long now…
