It’s us! Harry and Dave are back together to bring MotoPod into 2017. Of course there’s more than just the return of MotoPod to talk about as some rather surprising TT news broke just hours before recording. Of course, the news is the return of Guy Martin, something no body saw coming! We also catch up on all the comings and goings in BSB with more and more seats filling up ahead of a juicy little season. Now, let’s all go look at some pretty MotoGP bikes get revealed and surprise no one with their liveries!
The brand new pairing of Skyler Vickroy and Harry Lloyd are back at it to keep talking Superbike rules. Skyler has been doing his homework so clears up a few questions we had floating around about the new WorldSBK grid. But then we go and raise even more questions as we chat about the new rules for the Stock 1000 class in BSB. The proof will be in the pudding as they say and both sets of rules have certainly peaked fans’ interests. To round things off we get a preview of Martin’s new adventure.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal come back from a brief Motorcycle Live induced break to talk all things BSB, WorldSBK and MotoGP. The NEC could have easily been mistaken for the BSB news hub as we had some rather significant signings announced. Harry and Dave also touch the WSBK/MotoGP test at Jerez where Rea threw the gauntlet down. But of course, the real top topic of the show are the new WorldSBK rules which were hot off the press when we recorded. Be sure to tune in next week for BSB Stock 1000 rules and a bit more reflection on the WorldSBK grid shuffling.
The fantastic 2016 season has come to a close, Harry and Dave here to help ease the pain. Despite the three titles having been decided before the last round, we had three thrilling races - a perfect end to the perfect season. But fear not, 2017 is already here as the MotoGP riders were back out almost straight away to give us a taste of 2017. It left a very Maverick taste in our mouths to say the least…
Well it’s not over just yet and Martin Darlington and Skyler Vickroy are hoping it stays happening for at least a little longer. They give a brief preview of what to expect in Valencia as we head into the last round of the season. Martin also brings you his final chat from Qatar, a nice long state of the union with Steve English. Oh and the Google Voice makes a ‘welcome’ return to the show.
Martin Darlington and Len Padilla team up just like the Kawasaki WorldSBK team to cover Sepang and Qatar. Six races and a smorgasbord of interviews mean it’s a bit of a longer one. The rain came and played its own role in Sepang with the promised child finally coming fourth to deliver us our ninth different winner of 2016. Meanwhile in Qatar the skies were filled with red as Chaz Davies made himself known as one of, if not THE, men/man to beat in 2017. But it was a playful pair of green bikes which ultimately decided the top three in the championship.
Dave Neal is joined by Harry Lloyd to talk about Phillip Island. The weather played more than a roll than we thought it would during the opening stages of the weekend and drama continued until the last lap in all three classes. Will riders ever learn to not lead out of the final corner? Will Cal Critchlow go down as the greatest Brit of all time? Will Jorge Lorenzo ever find his speed again? All these questions and more answered right now!
Harry Lloyd is joined by both Len Padilla and Dave Neal to face once of the busiest weekends of racing we’ve had. There were some great races and some not so great races, but surprises were a common theme throughout as three riders lifted their fifth titles to date. Winter is coming soon but don’t worry, there’s still plenty of racing to be done!
With both World Superbike and British Superbike producing some truly thrilling racing this last weekend, there was more than a little bit of action to talk about. But both Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal somehow managed to get a little sidetracked at various points. Don’t worry as eventually the good ship MotoPod gets back on course as we talk homologation specials, tight championships and just how much racing there is in two weeks time. It’s a long one so you had best get comfortable!
It’s all about Aragon with Skyler Vickroy and Martin Darlington this week. We’ve had our first World Champion crowned in 2016 and at least one of the other championships continues to tighten up more and more each weekend. Silly season continues to churn in the lower classes and some ‘interesting’ moves and rumours keep popping up. The end is in sight now, just the flyaways and Valencia to go…
