Paddock Pass Podcast #175 – Yamaha & Honda in MotoGP

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Episode 176 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one starts our review of the 2020 MotoGP Championship season, as we take a look at the fates of the various manufacturers.

On the mics, we have Neil Morrison and our newest member to the show, Adam Wheeler (from the magazine On-Track Off-Road).

Taking the manufacturers two at a time, this episode focuses on the results of the Yamaha and Honda squads during the year. 

Did Yamaha have a good year or a bad year? Winning half the races suggests they had a good season, but the results of the individual riders tells a different story.

Adam and Neil dive in to what changed for each rider and how they performed, starting off with the first weekend at Jerez, the race where everything changed for Yamaha, and their valve issue emerged.

From there, eyes turn to the Honda garages. Naturally, the loss of Marc Marquez is the big story for HRC, and Neil and Adam look at the bind that put Honda in.

It is a quick show, but we think you will find the insights from Neil and Adam rather interesting, and worth a listen. Next week, Adam and Neil finish up the current series with a look at KTM and Aprilia.
