Jules Cisek and Jim Race go through listener feedback, shoutouts, and bits of news. Interviews with PJ Jacobsen (Tyco Suzuki BSB), Kenny Noyes (Suter-Ariane CEV), and … lets face it, we can't call it an interview - Jim and Mark Miller on the good and bad of Macau and much more. Plus MotoGP and WSBK news (testing, rider lineup) and we talk about the Circuit of The Americas which hosted F1 this month.

Jules Cisek and Jim Race try (mostly in vain) to make sense of what was a brilliant yet chaotic weekend of WSBK racing in Assen. "Three" SBK races sort of overshadowed a brilliant WSS race. Meanwhile, Len Padilla managed to get you all a couple of excellent interviews from the ultra-competitive Spanish CEV National series. Jerez MotoGP is coming up, and we know that will be special. Join us, will you?

* Michael Bartholemy and Andrea Oleari of marc vds
* Nicky Hayden
* Dennis Noyes
Martin Darlington and Jules Cisek discuss Aragon from almost the same time zone for once. Listener email is followed by a discussion of the 125, Moto2, and MotoGP races interspersed with interviews with Michael Bartholemy, Andrea Oleari, Nicky Hayden, and Dennis Noyes plus some atmospheric audio recorded at the Motorland circuit.
This episode was recorded on the Spanish Mediterranean coast in an internet café during an FC Barcelona Valencia match so it'll sound a little different than usual and please excuse the bar noise as well as the minor dropouts as the internet signal was a bit of a rollercoaster.
* Nick Harris, Livio Suppo, Cal Crutchlow, Lucio Cecchinello, Hiroshi Aoyama, Toni Elias, Valentino Rossi, Gavin Emmett, Paul Denning, Tom Tremayne, Nicky Hayden, Dennis Noyes
Bleary eyed Jules Cisek and purple haired Jim Race glue together all the bits we took off our recorders from Laguna Seca. First, MotoGP commentator Nick Harris weighs in on the 2011 season and we follow with quick chats with HRC's Livio Suppo, Tech 3 rider Cal Crutchlow, LCR boss Lucio Cecchinello, Gresini rider Hiroshi Aoyama, and LCR rider Toni Elias. Valentino Rossi talks about QP and season prospects and Gavin Emmett makes race picks. Special guest host Mark Miller then interviews Jim Race while Paul Denning of Suzuki Racing, Tom Tremayne from Bridgestone, and Ducati's Nicky Hayden give post race impressions. Finally a fantastic wrapup with Dennis Noyes. Man what a weekend!
Jim Race and Jules Cisek completely ruin the show with mindless banter, only to be saved by some excellent on-the-ground reporting once again by Gonçalo Silva at the Estoril MotoGP round with awesome talks with Cal, Eskil and Kenny. Plus remember, if you can, please help get MotoPod to the IOMTT. We've got no backup plan. You, are It.
* Interview: Dennis Noyes
* Interview: Ben Spies
* Interview: Mark Neale
Jules Cisek and Jim Race fill in bits in between some great interviews this week. We've got Dennis Noyes followed by Ben Spies followed by Mark Neale. Plus if that wasn't already kick ass enough, we're giving away a GoPro HD camera! Yep. But you have to listen to the show to find out how you can win one.
* Tantalizing talk with Dennis Noyes
* Review of the final MotoGP test from Qatar
Jim Race and Martin Darlington collectively lose their minds, but not before a bit of sanity in a talk Jim had with the ever eloquent Dennis Noyes. The time for talking is done. Now, it's all about performance. The MotoGP season is well and truly upon us now, and to be honest we couldn't be more happy. Bring it.
