Episode 126: The Championship So Far

* Bob is back!
* Championship Review with Darren Carpenter

Bob is back from a work & vacation related little break, and we get right back into the swing of things with a great chat with Darren Carpenter. We mostly covered the MotoGP championship so far, not so much a race review of the Grand Prix of China, but more like an analysis of the top ten riders in the standings and some opinions and chit chat. It's a long call, but it's interesting stuff!
