On the eve of the Sachsenring MotoGP round, Steve English, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett look ahead to the German Grand Prix, where Marc Marquez has dominated for the past ten years. They kick off the podcast with a look at where motorcycle racing is with respect to fan attendances in light of the improving situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, and what that might mean for the second half of the season.
Then they take a dive into the race, and ask whether anyone can stop Marc Marquez from lifting an eleventh victory in a row at the Sachsenring. Anyone, including Marc Marquez, given how uncompetitive the Honda is at the moment, and how Marquez is still recovering from injury. Steve gives a pop quiz on previous historical win records, and the remarkable record of Giacomo Agostini in Germany.
Then we run down the challengers. What do we expect Yamaha to do at the circuit? Can the Suzukis be competitive? How will Ducati fare at a track which is the polar opposite of what the Desmosedici needs to shine. Is the KTM turnaround permanent? And what will Aprilia do? And we wind up with our predictions for the race weekend.
