    Taka Nakagami: being honest with yourself and learning from Marc Marquez

    Taka Nakagami: being honest with yourself and learning from Marc Marquez

    That’s it. We’re done. Season two of Last On The Brakes comes to a close and with another high profile guest - one of the sensations of the 2020 season, Takaaki Nakagami! He’s actually the first return guest we’ve had on the podcast after we spoke to him last year so this time we wanted to breeze through his origin story and hit him straight with the burning questions we had in mind - his honesty to himself and the media when he makes mistakes and what it’s like looking at Marc Marquez’s data and trying to emulate what he does on the track. Huge thanks to Taka for his openness, we hope you all appreciate what we think is up there in the top 3 most interesting podcasts we’ve done this year!
    Quick note as well to say thank you for the interaction this season and of course for listening… see you in 2021!

    Davide Brivio: Jack of all trades becomes a master of one

    What does it take to be a MotoGP™ Team Manager? Well, if you want to be anything like Davide Brivio, try your hand at just about every job there is in a motorcycle racing team, from grass roots, to professional and then to the very top level! He has seen it, done it, and got the t-shirt. Then, he started all over again at Suzuki! With the Hamamatsu-based manufacturer on the cusp of a triple crown World Championship season in 2020, we get to know the figurehead behind it all, how the project restarted once they left MotoGP™ initially in 2011 and what the whole team’s philosophy has been to bring Suzuki back to the very top of the sport.
    Sit back, enjoy, and we’ll see you next time for the final episode in the 2020 Last On The Brakes season! :)

    Fabio Quartararo: Turning 'too much pressure' to your advantage

    Fabio Quartararo: Turning 'too much pressure' to your advantage

    From 'the next Marquez' to 'totally lost', this is the story of Fabio Quartararo and how he dug himself out a 2 year long rut, propelling himself into a MotoGP™ ride and stunning the world with taking it to the best of the best in his first premier class season aboard a Independent Team bike in their own debut MotoGP™ season. Key takeaways from this episode are how he uses the pressure he once felt to his advantage, how he keeps his feet on the ground and what it's like to basically have all your dreams come true in a very short space of time.
    Sit back, relax, enjoy! See you soon 🙂

    Johann Zarco: how to come back from the brink

    Johann Zarco: how to come back from the brink

    At the very circuit where last year, Johann Zarco rocked up in a motorhome with no ride in the premier class, looking for a job and a way to rebuild his career, we sat down with the double Moto2™ World Champion to discuss what it takes to make it back to the top of the sport to the podium and continue his search for the holy grail, that first MotoGP™ victory.
    In one of the most open and honest Last On The Brakes podcasts to date, Johann tells us about the humble beginnings of his racing career and how, inspired by his own start in the sport, he wants to help potential French motorcycling superstars in the future.
    Plus, what MotoGP™ world he thinks Marc Marquez will return to once he recovers from injury - will he have it so ‘easy’?
    Question of the week: are young racers rushed into the premier class too soon? Let us know your thoughts in a comment on the YouTube version of this podcast, or by using #MotoGPpodcast on Twitter! See you soon.

    Andrea Dovizioso: How psychological training turned him into a championship contender

    Andrea Dovizioso: How psychological training turned him into a championship contender

    It’s not often you get a full 25 minutes chat with one of the greatest motorcycle racers in recent history. But here we are, bringing you guys Dovi Undaunted and Unfiltered talking about some of the things closest to his heart; Supercross, caravan holidays, his inner circle, and of course the methods he uses to be at the very top of his game every time he lines up on a MotoGP™ grid.
    There’s not just stories and perspectives in this episode, there’s a few things for us all to take away from this one as well… Funny story actually, we had intended for Dovi to be one of the very first episodes of the year all the way back in Qatar but then, well, everything happened and half a year later, finally, we’ve managed to find a slot in his busy schedule for him to come and have a chat.
    Hope you all enjoy! See you soon!

    Wilco Zeelenberg: riders after retirement… and a disastrous first day in a new job!

    Wilco Zeelenberg: riders after retirement… and a disastrous first day in a new job!

    The last few episodes of the podcast have had us thinking about riders and what they do after they retire. Do ex-athletes fill out the other roles in their respective sports better than non-athletes? Does having competed in the sport mean you automatically have all the necessary skills to exceed in your post racing career? A lot of us probably have a good idea about the answer to some of those questions already. But we wanted to speak about the topic, and as ever get to know a little better, a man whose post racing career has far outshone his competition career back in the day. Wilco Zeelenberg is a one time 250cc Grand Prix winner and as team manager, he took Jorge Lorenzo to three #MotoGP World Championships, Cal Crutchlow to his World Supersport Championship, and now is the team boss at Petronas Sepang Racing Team in MotoGP™… which you may know, just took victory in Misano with Franco Morbidelli and two previous victories this year with Fabio Quartararo… they’re pretty decent, to say the least. He also was the first ‘rider performance analyst’ in the MotoGP™ paddock, that’s “rider coach” to you and us, so basically is responsible for creating an entirely new job in racing. So what does he think of that? How did he decide the moment to retire from riding? How did he then rise to the very top of the sport once again? As you’ll hear, it was far from straight forward - even on his first day in the new job!!
    Hope you enjoy the episode, leave a review if you liked it pretty please and any comments, get in touch using #MotoGPpodcast on Twitter, or comment below the YouTube version of this podcast!
    See you soon!
