In this episode I have a great chat with MotoAmerica Superbike racer Max Flinders, and his dad, Martin, who helps run the team and does a lot of the work on their Yamaha R1 race bikes. We chat about their last race weekend at Road America a month ago, and the upcoming MotoAmerica Round #2 also being held at Road America this coming weekend. In fact, they are heading there now as I record this introduction. We discuss the 2020 R1 they are hoping to race in this upcoming race weekend, what it has been liking preparing and racing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and also why their team is considered one of the friendliest teams in the MotoAmerica paddock.

In this episode I have a great chat with Darren Waite, who not only is a fellow motorcyclist, but used to club race motorcycles in Australia, and has worked in the motorsports industry for 25 years. Darren is responsible for bringing the racing, track riding, motocross, adventure and street riding products of Italian based Forma Boots to the Australian and the US markets. We talk in depth about the Forma Ice Pro boots that I recently purchased for street and track riding, the technology behind them, why they are used by MotoGP racer Danilo Petrucci, and how Forma’s technology and approach to boot design, development and manufacturing is applied to the products they supply for all disciplines of motorcycle riding.
