Jules Cisek and Jim Race are together once again to go over listener email, chat about recent developments during the silliest of seasons and generally wreak havoc on the show before they head to Indianapolis for USGP #2 this week.

Jules Cisek and Martin Darlington go through listener email, various news bits, Jules' armchair theory of the leg dangle followed by a passionate appraisal of the bizarre 125 race, the once again extremely satisfying Moto2 race, and the mostly clinical and processional MotoGP race saved by a brilliant ride from SuperSic.
