Episode 23 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is here. In the latest episode, Jensen Beeler of Asphalt & Rubber leads the conversation between Neil Morrison and MotoMatters.com's own David Emmett, in which we take a quick look back at Argentina and discuss the Austin round of MotoGP.
There was plenty to talk about. First, the chaos on the grid at Argentina, and the constantly changing time schedule, as well as the tire situation which caused the problems in the first place. Then the race at Austin, with myriad crashes and an unsurprising winner. Of course we also cover the Lorenzo to Ducati move, as well as taking a look at how that affects the rest of Silly Season. And finally, we take a quick glance at Moto2 and Moto3, celebrating Khairul Idham Pawi's astounding win, and asking what happened to him at Austin.
The episode was recorded at Suzuki's private test at Austin on Monday, so it is set against the backdrop of Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales howling past every so often on the Suzuki GSX-RR. It's a long show, but an interesting one.
