June’s podcast with Cal Crutchlow

It was up to Silverstone for our latest podcast to see MotoGP Tech 3 Yamaha rider Cal Crutchlow.

There were also a few changes to the usual Motor Sport team as our ‘bike writer Mat Oxley joined Rob Widdows and Ed Foster to chat to the 2009 World Supersport Champion.

    I’m so glad that you interviewed a rider on this occasion.
    I wish you had more articles about the motorcycling world.
    I really like your magazine. Congratulations!

    Good podcast, nice to hear a bit from a biker and Cals a pretty straight talker. Would have liked to hear a Moto GP fan asking a few questions though, maybe dig a little deeper but it was a good listen.

    You outdid yourselves this time!

    Put a microphone in front of Cal Crutchlow as often as possible. I’m a huge fan of your podcasts. I’m sure that the next one, from Goodwood, will be just as good as last year’s, just as good as the past couple of months. Thanks, so much!

    Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed the chat with Crutchlow.
    I am a Moto GP fan……………..! And so is Mat Oxley, the magazine’s motorcycle writer and who covers all the Moto GP races. We did try to get Cal to get into some depth, on CRT and on the current bikes, but he wasn’t going to be drawn into anything controversial.
    We will certainly be keeping abreast of what happens in Moto GP and Mat will no doubt be writing about the British GP, and the debate over CRT.

    Thanks Rob! Am a pretty big MotoGP fan as well!

    Sorry guys, no offence! :P

    Sorry Ed! No offence. (Our website Editor Ed Foster was of course on the podcast. We are all Moto GP fans).
    You only had to watch the racing at Silverstone to know why.
    Cal’s performance on Sunday afternoon surely said everything that needs to be said about this man. Simply extraordinary, a sporting occasion that will live long in the memory. Not only that, his lap times would have put him on the podium had he started higher up the grid.
    Talk about guts and courage.

    Super interview, Cal is a top notch bloke and his brave ride at Silverstone was fitting for a rider from the Isle.

    Love the podcast! Would you be able to set it up with Apple/iTunes so that we could simply subscribe to it and have it automatically download?

    Hi Luke,

    All the podcasts are on iTunes. Just search for motor sport (two words) magazine and you’ll see it.
