There have never been three more sophisticated, informed, or serious MotoGP commentators than those screaming bastards on Italian TV. Or those stuttering Pom pumpernickels who keep saying “penultimate” because its fancier than “second-last”. They’re pretty good at this MotoGP commentary stuff. And there’s a few Spanish commentators who are the top of their game.
We’re not them.

Sometimes motorcycle racing is about more than motorcycles and racing. Sometimes - when it is in France for example - it is about motorcycle racing AND sexiness. And so it was at Le Mans which not only delivered the magnificence of The Beast but also introduced Choomlah Peek a Boo to Moto GP. An historic weekend, bitches, and one that is celebrated in full in this truly magnificent episode of the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world.

If you listened to last week's episode (and if you didn't then seriously, what are you doing with your life?) you would have heard the boys chatting electric with Dennis Savic of Savic motorcycles. You would also have heard that there was more to that interview than appeared in last week's show and you may have been wondering what happened to it. Well, wonder no more because here it is in all its motorcycling glory. Enjoy!

And so there was racing, and there was merriment, and there was puerile, schoolboy humour to be had for someone had injured their private parts. And this was right in the wheelhouse of our intrepid trio of ill informed motorcycle correspondents who, despite knowing almost nothing about motorcycles or racing, still produce the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world. And Boris wrote a poem and the people did snigger because it was childish and rude and used profanity. And so it was that another episode of Moto PG came to pass, one that included a special guest whose technology lasted the entire episode and who also offered a poem of his own to the gods of motorcycle podcasting. And it was good, and you should listen to it. Now.

It's a miracle. The boys didn't go to hell last week despite Freido's blasphemous prayer and recording on Good Friday instead of worshipping like they should have been. Despite that lucky escape, however, they just might be enjoying the company of Beelzebub after Borrie's poem this week. The Big Man was only four lines into it before Tug had an involuntary physical reaction and by the time it was over, almost nobody in the paddock had escaped Borrie's wrath. It's vulgar in the extreme, politically incorrect and just plain uncouth. Yes, everything that makes this the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world. And it's only one segment! Get it in your ears people before the censors catch on...

Does recording on Good Friday mean the team are going straight to hell? Let's hope not because Ep 63 is a ball tearer and it would be a shame if there were no more. Then again, it would be a good one to go out on? Anyway, you know what the show's about (profanity, analysis, profanity, sponsors, more profanity etc..) so no need to go over it here, get it in your ears now so you know where to go for the incredible Made in Germany Easter sale. (Yes, it is so good you don't want to miss it. The sale that is, not the show. But the show is good, too. So just press play FFS.)

There are 7.9 billion people on planet earth and only two of them thought Aleix Espargaro could ever win a Moto GP race. Those people were Espergaro's wife (she has to, it's her job) and our own Tug McClutchin (who is just mad). But like a blind squirrel that stumbles across an acorn and somehow convinces itself that its good fortune is of its own making, Tug now thinks he's a genius. Episode 62 is a lot of things. It features a Borrie poem, Freido at his best and of course all the usual profanity and analysis. But it is also the longest and most painful 'I Told You So' segment in the pod's history. It's still the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast in the world, just with an extra dash of Tug. We apologise in advance and expect to resume normal programming next week.
Oh, and like one of those horrible FM Radio breakfast shows we now have a Secret Sound competition - but only for our Patreon Pit Crew members. If you're not one of those you can't win the prize (a replica Joan Mir AGV helmet from his World Title winning year which is valued at $900) so if you're not a member yet get on over to our Patreon page and sign up.

You know those concerts where some ageing rock star sings all their old hits? And the crowd loves it and can't get enough? And complain if they do anything new? Well, if Freido, Tug and Boris were a band then Episode 61 would be that concert. All the favourites are here: Boris' poem, ask George, We Told You So, F*** Michelin and the list goes on. So grab it while it's hot because there won't be another episode like this one. Until Episode 62 but that's weeks away.

It's back. All of it. The racing, the swearing, the poem, the nicknames, the name calling, the 'will we get in trouble for saying this' commentary. And it's a beautiful thing. As regular listeners know, Qatar tells us nothing about who will be competitive for the year BUT it does signal the start of the season and so it is important and must be talked about. And nobody talks about motorcycles and racing like Boris, Freido and Tug which, frankly, is a good thing because really, who would want to live in that world?

It's getting closer bitches. The start of the season is less than three weeks away and the boys are all over it with Freido, Tug and Boris getting the inside word from testing in Indonesia courtesy of everybody's favourite Asia correspondent, The Dirty Badger. Then strap in for a chat with one of Australia's rising stars of motorcycle racing, Harry Khouri. The 17-year-old is getting ready to head back to Europe to compete in the Supersport 300 World Championship and chatted with the boys ahead of a session at Sydney's Eastern creek.

It's 2022 bitches and the boys are back. But this time, they're organised. According to Boris, the show now has a 'format' and 'segments' and 'music' and 'more sponsors' which all sounds dead boring, truth be told. But the good news is the crew hasn't changed and the magic that happens when Freido, Tug and Boris turn on the mics remains - this time with a dash of the legendary Chris Vermeulen! Episode 1 of 2022 is just a warm up before the real fun starts next week so ease into the season with some inspired analysis and a Boris poem. What better way could there be to do it?

Joel 'The Ginger Ninja' Kelso joins Boris and Freido in the studio for a special episode of the MotoPG pod. Opportunities like this don't come along too often but when they do you grab them. Unless you're Tug, in which case you find something else to do which is apparently more important. For the rest of us, sit back and enjoy a chat with one of the rising stars of world motorcycle racing.

Sure it was a long ride and yes it pelted rain all the way home Sunday but nobody died (as far as we know) and anybody who was at Singleton to hear Mark Willis talk about his Moto GP career and all other things racing will tell you it was worth it. Willis was the star of the show in this fireside chat with Boris, Tug and Freido (and an audience of about 80 diehard motorcycle fans) at the Singleton Ride and Record weekend. It's bike talk at its best and now you get to enjoy it, too (but without the pelting rain and free beer. Or the first seven minutes of the interview which were lost to the gremlins of digital technology).

Sitting around talking about motorcycles is great but it's not a patch on getting out there and actually doing it. If you didn't make it to the end of year Singleton Ride and Record it's probably your own fault but because the Moto PG team are altruists at heart, they will allow you to listen in to the goings on of that evening. This is part one (even though it was recorded as part two but you don't need to worry about that) , a simultaneously comprehensive and incomprehensible wrap of all the action from season 2021. Next week, come back for a brilliant chat with former Moto GP rider Mark Willis.

They say all good things must come to an end and so it is with MotoGP season 2021 and the career of one of the all time greats, Valentino Rossi. It's an episode tinged with sadness at these realisations but that soon passes as the usual ingredients that make this the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world bubble to the surface: profanity, poetry and p*** taking. And just because the racing is finished for the year doesn't mean we are so keep an eye out in the usual places for some truly magnificent end of year content.

It takes a lot to knock MotoGP off it's poem perch but it's happened this week thanks to South Africa' s pride and joy, the Blind Rhino Darryn Binder. Baby Jesus (Pedro Acosta) was crowned Moto 3 champion in Portimao thanks to Binder and for his efforts in taking out Dennis Foggia and handing Acosta the title Binder will now be forever immortalised in a Boris ode. Praise doesn't come any higher. Come for the poem but stay for the discussion about Rossi's looming last ride, Moto2, plans for the Singleton trip with the crew on November 20 and more.

There is a new King of Moto GP and so moved was Boris by the crowning of France's first world champion that he penned a poem in honour of Fabulous Fabio. As always, it's a highlight of the show but it's just one nugget of brilliance among many as the boys return to the studio to record face to face for the first time in three months. It's irreverent, disrespectful, anti establishment and everythignelse you've come to expect from these three reprobates and as always, it's outstanding.
