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.
Meanwhile Skyler kept the home fires burning and has all the news that's fit to articulate in the world of MotoGP & MotoAmerica.

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 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…

Charlie Hiscott + James Whitham 02:18:24

Steve English + Harry Lloyd 02:50:55

Skyler Vickroy and Derek Cabrera and Jim McDowell cover the last of the MotoGP flyaways where Andrea Dovizioso kept his hopes of the MotoGP crown alive with a spirited wet weather ride against his teammate. Once again, it all comes down to the final round of the year - unlike Moto3, Moto2 and WorldSBK which were all wrapped up with at least a couple of rounds left. Speaking of WorldSBK, Martin Darlington made his annual WorldSBK pilgrimage to see some bikes and make some new friends, more interviews to come! Harry Lloyd and Steve English join Martin for what can only be described as a classically MotoPod chat (Harry kept looking at the TV screen).
