After the tense thriller of a MotoGP race at Misano, the Paddock Pass Podcast crew got together to mull over events. Steve English, Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett sat down to discuss Andrea Dovizioso's retirement, Pecco Bagnaia's fourth win in a row, and the state of MotoGP as it is.
We kicked off with a discussion of just how strong Pecco Bagnaia's performance was at Misano. We ask if his momentum has become unstoppable now that he has won four races in a row, and what this means for the championship. We discuss Marc Marquez, what it means that he will be testing at Misano, and whether a return to racing is on the cards sooner rather than later.
In the light of Bagnaia's win, we ask if Fabio Quartararo can hang onto his championship lead until Valencia, especially given that MotoGP returns to the overseas rounds in Thailand, Japan, Australia, and Malaysia after Aragon. And we take a dive into the state of MotoGP, with its fan survey, and what that means for the sport, Pecco Bagnaia's choice of Dennis Rodman as a sporting hero for his helmet, and what the attendance at Misano has to say. And we finish up as always with our winners and losers.
