Episode 141 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one takes down a trip on memory lane in the WorldSBK paddock, as Steve EnglishGordon Ritchie, and Jensen Beeler talk about the 2002 World Superbike Championship.

One of the most memorable WorldSBK seasons, 2002 saw a battle for the championship between Colin Edwards and Troy Bayliss, which went down to the very last race of the season: the Showdown at Imola.

An iconic battle, the final race at Imola is considered by many to be the best motorcycle race of modern times, and it is certainly worth a discussion while we are all stuck at home because of the coronavirus.

Helping us remember the moment, the show includes insights from Neil Hodgson, who finished third in the championship that year, as well as comments from Adrian Gorst, who was Edwards’ crew chief during this season.

A true Superbike classic, you won’t want to miss this discussion about the 2002 season and the final race at Imola. As always, the show is packed full of insights.
