Episode 532: From the Waterfall to the Lagoon

The catch up shows continue as Harry returns from his Laguna Seca pilgrimage to chat Sachsenring and WorldSBK with Skyler Vickroy. Two tights tracks, but two very different atmospheres (Harry get soaked at one and sun burnt at the other). The two championships are also in pretty contrasting positions: MotoGP the best it has been in over 20 years while WorldSBK has many journalists bickering about how to fix it. Finally, we hear from Scott Bolton about MotoAmerica Pre-Laguna. Enjoy the atmosphere at the start of his clip and imagine yourself out there on the deck, nice cold beer and talking bikes.

Apologies for no proper Laguna meet up - a sick co-commentator had Harry running around like a headless chicken all weekend.

Episode 531: Kicking Assen

Assen produced a truly wonderful weekend of racing. Was it the best ever weekend? Was it the best weekend this year? Is this the best year ever? We tackle some of these questions, and a fair few others, on this weeks show. Skyler and Harry delve into what went on and what is still going on in the Grand Prix paddock. Once again Skyler gives a couple of riders a bit of a boot, but that could be the exact motivation they need! Who would have thought Dovi would be leading the World Championship? What a time to be alive. Unless you’re Lorenzo, then you’re probably wishing Assen didn’t happen…

Episode 530: Ducati Delight

We used to be good at doing these regularly, but sometimes life gets in the way! A bit of a bumper episode as Harry and Skyler Vickroy catch up with two rounds of MotoGP and WorldSBK. It’s been a very Ducati affair lately as the Bologna Bullets seem to have found their groove. But as always, there’s still a lot more to come. We also launch two brand new competitions to win a free book and maybe become a host!

Episode 528: Go Nicky

A somewhat sombre episode as we have Nicky Hayden in our minds throughout, #GoNicky. We get caught up on the latest news before taking a very deep dive into all the racing that has been going on lately with WorldSBK, MotoGP, NW200, MotoAmerica and much more. There’s no rest for the wicked as the MotoGP - WorldSBK schedule keeps alternating with a couple of road races thrown in for good measure.

It’s a red, white and blue episode as Scott Bolton and Skyler Vickroy team up to cover MotoGP in CotA and MotoAmerica. Racing in both series was thrilling right until the end and left a fair few people wanting more. There’s also something in the Superbike water as both WorldSBK and MotoAmerica saw a war of words between their title contenders.

Harry Lloyd and Marting Darlington bring you all the MotoGP happenings from Argentina. A weekend of ups and downs for many, but we’re left wondering if any of it was really that surprising. Well apart from Abraham second on the grid, THAT was surprising but fair play to him. We also delve into the interview lockers to pull out a couple of interesting ones to keep you entertained over the long weekend (if you have one where you live, if not just enjoy the interviews!)

Episode 525: Fastest Gun in the Damp

Freddie Spencer 00:28:20 (Excuse the audio issues on Dave’s end)

Mark Miller 01:37:46

Martin Darlington leads a valiant solo charge in this week’s MotoPod as he recaps a mad, but brilliant, MotoGP weekend in Qatar. It’s a desert, it’ll never rain! Famous last words which produced a truly fantastic season opener. To make up for the lack of hosts both Dave Neal and Jim Race were hard at work on the interview trail with some fan favourites making their much anticipated return to the show. Racing is in full swing now as a steady flow of two wheeled action starts running through all our TV and computer screens.

A mixed bag this episode with Martin starting the show with a flurry of testing interviews. After that we sneak in the last of Dave’s interviews from the MCN show in London before heading back over to Harry and Len to briefly talk about what went on in Thailand. It was all a little bit busy these last few weeks in the motorcycling world and it’s only going to get more exciting as 2017 soars into full flight next week. The MCN Fantasy League is maybe sort of back, so do keep sending in your requests, Harry will get to them eventually!

We’re back in action as the 2017 racing season roars to life down at Phillip Island. We briefly go over MotoGP testing before diving into the WorldSBK action. As ever, the Australian circuit produced some truly thrilling action with a set of near photo finishes in all three races. 2017 has only just started and it’s already looking like one of the best ever. Dave Neal was busy down in The London gathering us some interviews from the MCN bike show as well, a truly jam packed episode this week.
