Episode 508: Will the real Dani Pedrosa Please Stand Up?

Martin Darlington and Skyler Vickroy talk magical Misano. Who would have expected Dani Pedrosa to produce a ride like that? Never rule out the number 26, that’s just how he likes it. But as is all too common with Pedrosa, his wonderful achievement was overshadowed by a war of words between two other familiar names. Luckily Pedrosa gets his moment in the sun on MotoPod before Martin pimps his new gig and talks about the book he’s reading.

Dave Neal and Harry Lloyd have finally dried off after a very wet and wild Silverstone. Luckily it threw up some wonderful racing in all three classes so the soggy socks were more than worth it. While Harry was busy delivering sweet treats to the paddock, Dave was actually getting some work done and managed to stick his microphone under the noses of a few people. He even managed to get MotoPod into the somewhat secretive world of post-session debriefs where riders are more casual than in on camera interviews. Oh and we’re having the best season ever, in case you didn’t notice.

Episode 506: CALculator

Len Padilla joins up with Harry Lloyd to discuss what turned out to be a VERY British Czech GP. Three winners that no one saw coming made for an exciting weekend even if Harry did get a little wet in the process of it all. We also have a flood of listener emails on a wide variety of topics to kick the show off. In typical MotoPod style Alex Rins broke his collarbone after the show and Bradley Smith had a suspected broken femur at the Endurance World Championship, drama!

Episode 505: Fenati’s Fall

Harry Lloyd does it solo with a little help from everyone’s favourite Google Translate lady voice. We start off with a little life update before jumping head first into a pile of Moto3 news and drama. Surprisingly enough it was a young Moto3 rider who stole a number of headlines over the course of the weekend, but for all the wrong reasons. Aside from the flaws of Fenati, we had a glorious weekend at the Red Bull Ring, a circuit Harry is more than happy to go back to. We’re pretty sure Ducati will be more than pleased when the Austrian GP rolls around next year too…

Episode 504: Naming Rights

Jared Mees 00:54:40

Brad Baker 00:56:49

Martin Darlington bloods in new co-host Skyler Vickroy after a little announcement. They get straight down to business and figure out how the hell someone gets a name like ’Skyler Vickroy’. It’s not just about names as the pair also talk the little kid bits of news but in true MotoPod style the news kept breaking so Harry Lloyd steps in to cover some more WSBK silly season and the Suzuka 8 Hour. Once more Scott Bolton has been out in the field and has collected wonderful chats with Baker and Mees.

Episode 503: ThruxtonRing

Harry Lloyd and Martin Darlington jump right into testing in Austria. It was a very red affair but what will the race after summer produce? There’s a couple more bits of Silly Season news and Harry and Martin talk about what they expect from the 2017 rider pairings. Then of course it’s time to chat BSB as we remember just how good a circuit Thruxton is and how quickly the BSB rules seem to change.

Episode 502: Lord of the Ring

Dave Neal and Martin Darlington are back together for the first time in a while and get down to the pressing issues of the day: sunsets. The talk does, of course, eventually turn to the thrilling weekend in Germany where Marquez surfed through the soaking wet to take a decisive championship lead while Jorge Lorenzo forgot his floaty arms. Summer it’s almost upon us so it’s time to figure out what to do without motorcycles going around in circles. Luckily BSB and the Suzuka 8-Hour will help us through…

Episode 500: JackAssen

Danny Kent 00:50:17

Nicky Hayden 01:01:31

Jack Miller 01:05:10

Cal Crutchlow 01:17:46

It’s a historic episode so we keep up a bit of tradition as Martin and Jules come together to preview the Dutch GP on the very same day on which the first EVER MotoPod, or MotoGPod, was recorded. Settle in as it’s a bit of a long one. Martin and Jules spend most of the time going through MotoPod history. They also predict Assen, but as you can probably guess they were a little wrong… It’s was an incredible Sunday in Assen, the 800th lightweight class, the 250th MotoGP are and Assen’s first Sunday race made a bit of a historic day for all three classes and for MotoPod. Dave and Harry then swoop in to talk about all the drama, be warned, Harry still likes Jack Miller… Here’s to 500 more episodes!

Cam Peterson 01:12:12

After a week off we’re back! Or at least Harry Lloyd is. Silly season has finally settled down for all the major seats on the grid so we take the chance to quickly run over who is going where next year before running over the WSBK results from Misano. Jonathan Rea was back to his best as Tom Sykes failed to find that extra 1% to push him and Chaz Davies doomed Harry’s fantasy team…
