BikeLive #92 – Goodnight From Him

As you’ve probably been made aware, this is the final episode of #BikeLive, as Louis Suddaby is off to Barcelona for his new job as Social Media editor. With this being a massive commitment, we felt it was best to say goodbye now and give BikeLive the old viking burial treatment.

So in this final episode, we talk over the good old days, and preview the year in racing ahead. It’s been an incredible journey, with 92 episodes on here, and over 90 on Downforce Radio, and from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening to #BikeLive. It’s been an honour and a privledge to have you bring us into your homes.

Love Dre, and Louis.

“Your heart is free, you just have to be strong enough to follow it”. Dre and Louis look back on an emotional MotoGP Season Finale as Andrea Dovizioso took the final round in a soaked and restarted Valencia, Alex Rins impressed yet again, and we said goodbye to a true legend in the sport in Dani Pedrosa.

We also review Moto2 and 3, as Miguel Oliveira dominated to close out his season just 9 points away from Pecco Bagnaia, and Can Onsu making history as GP’s youngest ever race winner at 15 and 115 days on his debut as a wildcard!

Enjoy, it’s a special one!

November 10, 2018 BikeLive #86 – Doctor…No!

BikeLive #86 – Doctor…No!

Okay, not gonna lie here folks, this is the biggest #BikeLive of the year, clocking in at nearly 137 minutes, tackling a mad Sepang weekend in Malaysia for MotoGP’s final flyaway round, and some shock out of World Superbikes! Here’s a rough setlist:

– Rossi/Marquez 2, only not really as Valentino Rossi tries and fails his best Lorenzo impression upfront.
– Alex Rins is the 3rd best rider in the world since the break. No seriously, how do Suzuki have 8 podiums?!
– Pecco and the best/worst celebration ever as he wrapped up the Moto2 title. Oh, and Luca “Not just Rossi’s half-brother” Marini won his first GP!
– Martin is as ludicrous as his nickname, he wraps up Moto3. Sadly, “The Martinator” will never catch on.
– Ducati are having a team meeting, a round before their 5-time World Champion pisses off. Gotcha.
– And a 221bhp V4 Panigale is the THIRD maddest World Superbike story of the day. HRC. BMW. Factory backing. The day World Superbikes came back from life support?

All that and more on an epic BikeLive with Dre Harrison and Louis Suddaby!

BikeLive #85 – Return Of The Mack

Well, that was an entertaining GP weekend!

In a stacked BikeLive, we talk about World Superbikes season finale, and while we only got one “glitchy” Superbike race, the World Supersport title came down to the final lap as Sandro Cortese took the title over a desperate Jules Cluzel. Oh, and Jonny won, again.

We also talk about an incredible Philip Island weekend, as for the first time in 25 races and 490 days, Yamaha wins, with Maverick Vinales back on the top step, in a race also known for a 190mph crash between Johann Zarco and Marc Marquez! Moto2 had its race of the year, and we have 12 men covered by a tenth of a second going into the final lap of the Moto3 race, which Albert Arenas somehow won!

It’s a heaped BikeLive with Louis and Dre, enjoy!

BikeLive #84 – The Magnificent Seven

It was like a video game, a cheat code, but for Marc Marquez’s title rivals, it was game over.

Dre and Louis are back to review MotoGP’s Motegi round as Marc Marquez became the youngest 7-time World Champion ever, with another crushing victory as Dovi, fell on his sword.

We also look at Fabio Quartararo being DQ’ed from the Moto2 victory after being 0.02 bar under the legal limit, and Martin falling again, to give Bezzecchi another shot at the Moto3 World Title. We also preview this weekend’s Philip Island GP!

Hell has frozen over. Leon Haslam has won a major championship. Glory to Ealing Hospital.

Dre and Louis review the BSB Showdown Finale at Brands Hatch as Leon Haslam wrapped up the title on Saturday, and broke his jynx, meaning he’s now taken a win at every track on the calendar. Nice! We also praise Jake Dixon for keeping it close at the end, and Richard Cooper, who became BSB’s 7th different winner this season, a stat F1 would only dream of.

We also review World Superbikes debut weekend in Argentina, as Jonathan Rea made yet MORE history with his 9th and 10th consecutive victories, Toprak stole the entertainment award, and Jules Cluzel put up the wall yet again to hold off Sandro Cortese in Supersport!

We also preview MotoGP this weekend at Motegi! Can Marc Marquez wrap up the championship with his first match point against Dovi? Enjoy!
