Guest Video Blog: Freddie Spencer On A Controversial Race In Argentina

MotoMatters.com, in association with Motor Sport Magazine, is proud to feature the rider insights of 1983 and 1985 500cc world champion Freddie Spencer. After every MotoGP race, Fast Freddie will share what he saw and learned from the race.

There was certainly a lot for Freddie Spencer to talk about after an eventful Argentinian round of MotoGP, and the former world champion starts his latest video blog off with a memory of the only time he got to race in the country, his very first race in his first full season 500cc.

Spencer than takes a look at qualifying, and spends a few words on how well Jack Miller has performed on the Ducati. After a quick detour to discuss Jorge Lorenzo's comments on his teammate Andrea Dovizioso, Spencer goes on to talk about the chaotic start to the race, with Jack Miller sat alone at the front of the grid, the others lined up a long way behind him.

He then turns his attention to the race, and the incident between Johann Zarco and Dani Pedrosa, and describes how riders see racing incidents, and the injuries they can cause. He finally winds up his insights by talking about how the race turned into a tight battle between Cal Crutchlow, Zarco, Alex Rins, and Jack Miller.

For more insights from Freddie Spencer, his autobiography Feel: My Story is currently on sale.

The transcript of Freddie Spencer's video blog can be found on the Motor Sport Magazine website.
