MotoMatters.com, in association with Motor Sport Magazine, is proud to feature the rider insights of 1983 and 1985 500cc world champion Freddie Spencer. Every week after each MotoGP race, Fast Freddie will share what he saw and learned from the race.
Once again, Freddie Spencer gives his insights into the weekend goings on after the latest round of MotoGP. This time it's Misano, and Fast Freddie first turns his attention to the track, and of course the absence of Valentino Rossi, who lives just a few km away from the track. Rossi was out due to an injury sustained riding enduro, and Freddie Spencer then discusses the benefits which riding off road, and especially riding dirt track can bring.
Freddie then turns his attention to the race. He talks about how the weather affected the proceedings, and how Jorge Lorenzo was really getting into his stride until he crashed out. He then goes on to look at the battle for the lead, and how Marc Marquez ended up winning the race, and the risks he took to do so.
For more insights from Freddie Spencer, his autobiography Feel: My Story is currently on sale.
And for those who can't watch the video, here's an audio-only version of Freddie Spencer's rider insights
