Guest Video Blog: Freddie Spencer's Rider Insights On The Sachsenring, And Words On Goodwood FOS, in association with Motor Sport Magazine, is proud to feature the rider insights of 1983 and 1985 500cc world champion Freddie Spencer. Every week after each MotoGP race, Fast Freddie will share what he saw and learned from the race.

In this week's Rider Insights, Fast Freddie takes a look at the German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring. Having ridden the track a few weeks ago at the Sachsenring Classic, Spencer shares his perspective on the track. Naturally, he has high words of praise for the winner, Marc Marquez, but he was also impressed by Jonas Folger, and how he handled himself in the race.

Before talking about the race at the Sachsenring, Freddie Spencer has a few words to share on the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was at events like that where Spencer got to meet his own heroes, and helped inspire him to become a multiple world champion.

For more insights from Freddie Spencer, his autobiography Feel: My Story is currently on sale.

I've been watching these on youtube recently. David, this is a great addition to your site. 

Freddie is so insightful and can critique without sounding condescending. You know he's been throught it all himself. Freddie is the reason I bought my first bike. A 500 interceptor.... those were the days
