This is the first of FIVE podcasts we’re dropping at once as we play catchup through July and August, we’re very sorry this took so long, but if you like a binge-listen and like to reminisce over our old takes, here you go! In this episode we talk MotoGP’s season opener in Jerez as Fabio Quartararo took his first MotoGP win… and some guy called Marquez got hurt!

MotoGP Spanish Grand Prix
– Marc Marquez nearly falls from the lead, comes back from the back to run 2nd, high-sides, breaks his arm – AND HE STILL WANTS TO RACE NEXT WEEK
– Fabio Quartararo notches up first career victory, Vinales 2nd after S/S gamble, Dovi holds on for 3rd after tumultuous offseason – what’s their chances of a title now?
– JM43 4th, FM21 5th, PE44 6th – covered by a blanket; KTM simpin’ hours as MO88 is 8th and BB33 recovers to 13th with race-winning pace
– FB63 7th, DP9 9th , TN30 10th
– VR46 retires, JM36, AE41 put it on the floor – Oh and we also didn’t have Rins or Crutchlow
