Lots of interesting news this week, some silly season stuff and MotoGP is going to Indy! Not sure if that's all good or not, but it looks like it's going to happen. We also have an excellent Sachsenring preview courtesy of David Emmett from motogpmatters.com and a really interesting and somewhat unusual call with Liam Shubert!

Episode 84: Half Assen Preview and Donington Wrapup

* Silly Season and Some Reader E-mail
* Donington Qualifying and Race Wrapup
* Casey Stoner Interview (psych!)
* Assen Preview, but Not Really Well Prepared. Kinda like some "real" websites

We talk a little bit about some interesting stuff that's going on in MotoGP, plus wrapup Donington, share a chunk of an interview with Casey Stoner that I didn't actually do and then finish up with a real quick and dirty Assen preview and yet another apology.

Episode 83: Donington Preview and a Tech Segment Re-Run

* MotoGP News
* Reader E-mail
* Donington Preview and History Lesson
* Lets Talk About Brakes

We've got some interesting MotoGP news, a couple of brief comments about the World Superbike races at Misano, reader e-mail, a Donington preview complete with history lesson and audio onboard lap, and a tech segment about brakes that is in no way whatsoever related to the tech segment about brakes that was in show #37. Oh wait, maybe it's the same tech segment...

Episode 82: Catalunya Wrapup , 15 June 2007 (1:26:10, 30.3MB)

* Reader e-mail
* Catalunya qualifying and race report, plus a look at the standings
* MotoGP on CBS? WTF?
* Chat with Liam Shubert!

Bob does a fairly windy intro with a reader e-mail and some other comments, followed by a race report about the Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya. Then we talk about the CBS commentary of the Catalunya race, with a Pepsi Challenge of three different commentaries and we finish up with a great chat with Liam Shubert of the Pramac d'Antin Ducati team. Good stuff, make sure you listen to every second!!

Episode 81: Holy Cow, This is a Really Long Mugello Wrapup, 8 June 2007

* Bob and Jules Mugello Wrapup
* Chat with Liam Shubert
* Chat with Chuck Aksland

OK, this show go ridiculously long, and that means there was no time for much of a Catalunya preview show. On the other hand, this show does have an interesting bit with Jules and Bob talking about how great the Mugello race was, followed by a chat with Liam Shubert of the Pramac d'Antin team and then a call with Chuck Aksland, manager of the Team Roberts MotoGP team. It's very long, about an hour and a half, but well worth the download!

Episode 80: Bob's by Himself Again, Doing a Mugello Preview Show, 1 June 2007

* MotoGP News
* TVU Networks website...hmmm...
* Reader E-mail, that's always fun
* Mugello Preview with Audio Onboard Lap
* A Quick Look at the Standings Going into Round 6

A bit of a hodgepodge of a show today and we're back to the NPR for motorcycle racing format, with just Bob on the show. There's an interesting website that I found out there you might want to check out, plus some news and commentary. Also, a blog entry from Kropotkin Thinks at MotoGPMatters.com is blatantly cribbed because it was really good stuff. We wrap up with a Mugello preview, including an audio onboard and a look at the world championship standings going into Round 6 of the 2007 MotoGP season!

* Bob blathers on about his track day
* Kurtis is goin’ to the show!
* Did Vermeulen have ringer tires?
* Bob and Jim Race talk about Le Mans

A fairly long show today, about 1 hour and 12 minutes. But it’s well worth the time! We start off with Bob blathering on about his track day, but then we move into some more interesting stuff like a news report that showed up on crash.net that Kurtis Roberts will be riding the Team KR KR212V at Mugello. Then we have a short piece about a newspaper interview from Japan that tells us that Vermeulen was using a new tread pattern wet tire at Le Mans. After that, Bob and Jim Race go on at great length about how cool the Le Mans race was, even if it was raining. We finish things up with a little bit more blathering.

Episode 78: Liam gets Shanghai'd!

* Reader E-mail
* Chat with Liam Shubert about Shanghai & LeMans

**LATE BRAKING NEWS!** (Yes, I know it isn't spelled that way...)
This came in too late to make it into the recorded show, but Kawasaki sent out a press release that Fonsi Nieto will sub at LeMans for the injured Olivier Jacque!

In the show, Bob has a few too many beers and records a somewhat rambling commentary about the MotoGP points scoring system. After that, a phone call with Liam Shubert about the China GP and some of his expectations for LeMans.
