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.

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.

Will this be the one that gets us sued? Maybe. What started out as the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world (and still is) has morphed over time and is now also a legitimate literary vehicle. Boris' poems have added a dimension to the Moto PG Podcast that, frankly, we never expected. And what we all thought at first would be a one off bit of fun has now become a 'must listen' segment. Perhaps the only 'must listen' segment, if we're honest. This week's offering is at least as good as any that have come before and perhaps even better. That's a judgement for you to make. So listen. And learn. And grow. As a person and as a motorcyclist. And join our Patreon and make us rich. It is literally the least you could do.

If you thought it impossible for Boris to improve on his Pecco poem from Episode 49 you weren't alone. We all thought the Power of the Pecco Stiffy was as high as you could climb on that particular mountain. But one man stood alone in his belief that Boris could do better and that man was Boris. And so he did. And it is good. Very good. But better? Only you, the reader, can be the judge of that. So listen, and reflect, and ruminate, and decide. And while you're at it take in the rest of the incredible wisdom and childish buffoonery that makes this show the greatest Motorcycling podcast in the world. Oh, and buy some stuff in our shop and from our sponsors and help make us rich. We deserve it.

There's a lot to like in Episode 49 but let's be honest, the highlight is Boris' Pecco poem. Moving, compelling, powerful, emotive...it is none of these things. What it is is filthy and bawdy and laced with profanity. But it rhymes, and it's about a man's erection and, somehow, motorcycle racing as well. And so it's wonderful and it's brilliant and it's art. And it's only available here. So press play. For your own sake.

It's hard to know where to start with this one. The racing was meh but the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast In The World doesn't care about that. Boris has a new poem to celebrate the return of Dovi, Tug takes a beating for upsetting a listener and Freido...well Freido is Freido. Something, something something.

There are still way too many of you taking advantage of our incredible generosity here at Moto PG by not joining our Patreon Pit Crew so we thought a little taste of what you're missing out on might help. Only Pit Crew members get to ask questions for our Hearts and Minds segments and usually only Pit Crew members get to hear the answers - except this week.
If you don't already give us money every month by being a Pit Crew member this should convince you to start. And even if you don't like it give us some money anyway. We both know we deserve it.

Freido says no. Often. And now you can say NO! too with a new T-shirt in the merch shop. Scroll down and find the link below and make sure to buy two. We need the money.
Now, apart from trying to get rich we're here to talk about motorcycles and motorcycle racing and the glory that is Moto GP and there is a bucketload of stuff to ruminate on this week.
The boys dissect Maverick's dummy spit and the soap opera that followed, Boris has penned a poem for The Giraffe King (plus his Cultural Awareness and Empathy Training) and there's an especially smug edition of 'I Told You So'. It's all in Episode 46 so as soon as you've finished reading about and visiting all the sponsors mentioned below, hit the play button and bask in the glory of the Greatest Motorcycle Podcast In The World.

Danny Pedrosa tries to burn down Austria in a glorious weekend of racing, the podcast has a new sponsor and Boris solves the age old question of What Women Want. After the mid year break it's a jam packed episode 45 of Moto PG as Freido, Tug and Boris bring the world up to speed with happenings in and out of the paddock.

The Ginger Ninja, Joel Kelso, joins Boris Tug and Freido on a packed Epsiode 44 of the greatest motorcycling podcast in the world. Kelso talks Moto 3, Pedro Acosta, THAT incident with the Blind Rhino and his plans for the rest of 2021. Then we travel across the globe to South Africa where Donovan Fourie explains how the Binder's shit form has led to rioting across the nation before we welcome the one and only Dirty Badger from Malaysia with some breaking news about the Moto GP schedule.

There's good and bad news for Ep 43. The bad news is the boys are remote because of the plague and that means the sound quality is rubbish. The good news is that Freido is at home and so is his grappar. Please believe us when we say this people: Freido and grappar is a combination you don't want to miss. Boris has written two poems this week, we play MotoPG Bingo, I Told You So is back and of course there's a little bit of talk about actual racing as well.

Tug told you so (which is infuriating for Borrie and Freido and anybody else who knows him) but just because he won one race does that mean Marc Marquez is really back? The lads discuss that as well as the one man Moto 3 wrecking ball that is Pedro Acosta, the 'stupid' penalty handed to Darryn Binder, Joel Kelso's debut in the big leagues, What's in Borrie's shed, Hearts and Minds and plenty more.

It's the sexiest episode yet. Fabulous set the tone with his on course nudity and Freido, Tug and Boris have picked up the ball and run with it. Episode 41 has all your favourites including the 'F$&k Michelin' and 'We told you so' segments plus there are two bonus poems (and both mention Mir's mum!) Other podcasts talk about boring stuff but on Moto PG you get the real goss plus the odd bit of accidental analysis thrown in.

Sadly, it happens. Riding motorcycles at stupid fast speeds for the entertainment of people like us is dangerous and every now and then, tragically, someone pays the ultimate price. Every racer knows every time they get on the bike that it could be their last and at Mugello it was for Jason Dupasquier.
And so we pause, and we reflect, and we send our heartfelt condolences to Jason's family and friends and all those in the paddock. And then we get on with it. Because that's what racing is and that's what racers do.
Our own Jack Miller summed it up best when asked whether racing should have continued in the wake of Dupasquier's passing. "It’s the one thing we love to do," he said, "and it’s the one thing we’re good at."

The boys are on a Jack Miller inspired high after the Australian's second straight Moto GP title in Le Mans but that's just a small part of what makes MotoPG the greatest motorcycling podcast on earth. There's also Boris' Empathy Training and Cultural Awareness segment (which continues to educate listeners all over the world), Freido's Uncle Nick with the stats that matter and Tug's technical tips on how ridiculously high powered motorcycles actually work. And every now and then there's even a bit of serious analysis, just to keep things interesting.
