Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
The final episode of 2021. And it’s a big one. Over half an hour of unfiltered Casey Stoner. The two-time MotoGP World Champion came to the paddock for the final two races of 2021, and was kind enough to give us a substantial amount of his time fitting around his understandably busy schedule. In this episode we talk: his entry into the World Championship and how that first year changed his entire outlook on racing, what he thinks of the current crop of MotoGP riders as well as his tips for the future, *hat tip* Pedro Acosta. We also put that classic pub-chat ‘what if?’ question to him… what if Marc Marquez and Casey Stoner raced each other? This is not an episode to be missed, plenty to be learned about top flight racing and life from this MotoGP Legend.

    Pol Espargaro: ignoring online negativity & learning from the wrong decisions

    34:59

    One of the more honest and open chats of the season comes from none other than Repsol Honda rider & 2013 Moto2 World Champion, Pol Espargaro! Ahead of what was to be his best ever result in MotoGP at Misano with a stunning second place, we chatted with Pol about the highest and lowest points of his career: from battling week-in week-out with his now teammate Marc Marquez & why his title winning year wasn’t all that fun, and how a decision not to take a ride with Suzuki on their return to MotoGP changed the course of his career forever… plus, how playing the piano in front of his wife makes him more nervous than most other things in life!

    Joan Mir: pressure, privacy and building your career from zero

    32:32

    Here he is! A rider who needs no introduction: reigning World Champion Joan Mir. But as a self-confessed private person in a very public sphere, it’s Mir as you’ve probably never heard him before as the number 36 takes us from his beginnings as a rider to the top of the MotoGP world. Making his way through the junior categories and having to win every season to make an impression, the Suzuki rider talks us through the true meaning of pressure – and learning to enjoy racing – as well as how he has changed, or maybe not so much, since winning the title.

    Cal Crutchlow: taking a leap of faith & only listening to those that really matter

    45:17

    A podcast we never thought we’d get to do. But here we are. Cal Crutchlow, retired, but not. While on substitute duties at the AragonGP, we sat down with Cal to talk about what retirement is like (yes, a few aches and pains!), taking the leap from WorldSBK to MotoGP, and learning not to take comments from fans & the media to heart following a difficult first season in the premier class. Plus, for any cyclists out there - we get the low down on some of Cal’s training ‘techniques’/quirks. Insight, a different perspective than we’re used to on the podcast, and some laughs along the way. It was great to have Cal Crutchlow back in the paddock for a brief time in 2021.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Davide Tardozzi: the key to managerial success

    35:23

    Davide Tardozzi has been a team manager in top flight motorcycle racing for the best part of three decades. In that time, not only has he become famous for his wild celebrations in the pit box, he’s worked with some of the biggest superstars the sport has ever known, shipped a gigantic sculpture of a Giraffe to the USA and learned fair few things about managing people that we should all take note of in our own lives. He’s one of a kind and we hope you take as much away from this episode as we did, even if it’s simply learning what the distinction between his, Paolo Ciabatti’s and Gigi Dall’Igna’s roles in the Bologna Bullets.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Jorge Martin: Resilience & converting speed into wins

    29:52

    How does a MotoGP rookie get a pole position & podium in their second ever race? And then their second pole & a WIN in their SIXTH race? Jorge Martin is well and truly living his dream, he still can’t quite believe he is in fact a MotoGP rider, let alone a rider capable of winning in the premier class in his first season. We recorded this podcast with Jorge on the Thursday before the Styrian GP and wanted to know how he’s so resilient and able to return after set back & after set back, why he’s always been so fast over one lap, how he’s managed to convert that into victories in all classes… AND how he (at the time) planned to do that in MotoGP. Little did we know what was to happen on Sunday. Remarkable. The podcast blessing is back! Expecting an orderly queue of MotoGP riders who want another podium or win to turn up ready for a chat at Silverstone now… Enjoy!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Brad Binder: what makes the best 'Sunday riders'

    35:45

    How does a MotoGP factory convince a rider to sign a substantial 3 year deal? What mindset is key to being ‘a Sunday rider’ and bringing the best out of yourself when it matters? Which aspects of his job does Brad Binder like the most? All questions put to the South African World Champion and MotoGP race winner for this week’s episode. His response about mindset and attitude was something we found particularly interesting, ‘focusing on the now’ something similar to what we heard from his former team boss, Aki Ajo in a previous episode. Thanks again for all the quickfire question submissions - keep sending them in either in the comments below the YouTube video version of this podcast OR use #MotoGPPodcast on Twitter!

    33:42

    Alex Marquez like you’ve never heard him before. We sit down with the double World Champion to talk about life on and off the bike, his interests outside of the sport, and why he thinks it’s not always a good thing winning a World Championship when you’re barely 18 years old. Plus: we wanted to know what it’s like to be asked questions about someone else in just about every interview he’s ever done. This is an episode where we really do save the best bits till last! Thanks for your quick fire questions suggestions, we’ve put our favourites at the end of the episode! Catch you after the summer break!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
