Max Vandenbrouck is going racing in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup series this season!
In this episode I have a great chat with the father and son duo of Max and Brian Van from SportbikeTrackGear.com, otherwise known as STG, and we talk all things motorcycles and racing, including how STG got started, STG's sponsorship of MotoAmerica racers, and the progression of Max Van from track day rider and club racer to professional racer.

In this episode I have a cool chat with Cat MacLeod from Leod Motorcycle Escapes, a motorcycle touring company that specializes in tours for accomplished, performance minded riders that want to experience getting the most out of their riding skills both on the twisty public roads in the mountains as well as on MotoGP race tracks. Cat and I talk about the tours that he offers, the challenges he is facing due to COVID-19, some funny stories related to the tours he has conducted in the past, as well as his own experiences as a track day rider, particularly on his new Yamaha R1 which has been a big help in moving him up to riding in the A Group. We also talk about my first track day a couple weeks ago, which is a great segue into how a motorcycle rider interested in a Leod Escape can prepare themselves if they are not yet riding at that level.
