    He grew up near turn 1. When it comes to raw top speed, he holds the record. Last year, he finished second in the championship. And yeah, he can hang like it's nobody's business.

    Zen and the Art of Crashing

    Zen and the Art of Crashing

    Imagine one moment of perfect calm. You feel the air move around you, free from gravity. In the blink of an eye, everything becomes clear as water. It would be beautiful – if only you weren’t in the midst of a violent highside.

    Racing means crashing, something Mat and Peter are all too familiar with. But what happens when a rider loses control? What goes through your mind in that moment between error and violent consequence, and what does an engineer see when a bike goes flying in ways it was never meant to?  What does it mean to learn the limits of your bike the hard way, and how can someone like Marc Márquez both have the most wins and the most crashes? This week, we throw all caution to the wind as we look at why riders crash.

    Tech Talk - The Terrible Throttle Tell-All

The answer, as you might expect of a cutting edge million dollar speed machine, is a little complex. Luckily, we’ve got our very own engineering expert! Join us as Mat asks Peter everything you’ve ever wanted to know about what happens when you turn that handle.
    Oh, and make sure to stick around for the end of the episode for some very cool updates about the future of the podcast…

Best MotoGP podcast

This is hands down the best podcast about MotoGP. Forthright information from guys who have done the work. No speculative nonsense, just real direct discussions and professional knowledge shared. My only wish is that the episodes were longer, much longer.
