Episode 265: It's a Go


* 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.

Episode 264: I Remember When...


* Chat with Mark Bracks about his Phillip Island WSBK weekend.
* Interview with Ed Sorbo, jack of all trades.

Jules Cisek and Jim Race answer some listener email, riff on (butcher?) the "Ducati Pullout" article from Cycle News and sport two most excellent talks, first with Bracksy on the PI season opener and then a rockin' jaunt with Ed Sorbo who's been all around the US roadracing scene, both literally and figuratively.

Finally the email for the final Motomatters Calendar contest is: :)
