Paddock Pass Podcast Episode 220: Moto2 And Moto3 At Assen

Though the Assen MotoGP race and its fallout raised the most talking points, the Moto2 and Moto3 races left plenty to discuss as well. Steve English, Adam Wheeler, David Emmett, and a windswept Neil Morrison gathered to discuss the events of the Moto2 and Moto3 races, and what they might mean over the summer break.

The crew start off the Follow Up Show Fueled By Marc VDS Racing with the winner, Raul Fernandez, and what his future might hold. They discuss what he said himself about where his future lies - in Moto2 with the Ajo KTM team - and the rumors placing him in both the Tech3 KTM team and the Petronas Yamaha squad.

We go on to talk about the Moto2 race, and how it played out, including a fine return to form by Augusto Fernandez. And we debate the Moto3 race at Assen, how Pedrosa Acosta went quite literally from his hospital bed to finish fourth, and the way the race turned into a fight among the best riders on the day, with the weaker riders not able to benefit from the slipstream.

Please excuse the sound quality of some of the podcast. It was not recorded under ideal conditions, with Neil Morrison's audio in particular an issue. The content more than makes up for the sound issues though.
