With Neil Morrison undertaking the mammoth trek to Termas de Rio Hondo and Steve English recovering from a bout of Covid, the Paddock Pass Podcast crew is halved, with just Adam Wheeler and David Emmett to preview the Argentina round of MotoGP.
We delve into the history of the race, and recall some of our favorite moments from the event, including the Andrea Iannone/Andrea Dovizioso Ducati-on-Ducati crash on the final lap of the 2016 race, Jack Miller's bizarre pole position on an empty grid after a drying sighting lap in 2018, followed by Marc Marquez' hyper-aggressive charge through the field, and Scott Redding's burst tire during practice. We talk about the challenges of the track, the state of the surface, and whether we can draw any conclusions from a race here.
We also discuss the Marc Marquez situation, how he is recovering after the monster crash at Mandalika, whether he will be back in Austin or not, and what that means for his season. And we make some bold and probably wildly inaccurate predictions for who might come out on top in Argentina.
