What a weekend for British riders! Saturday night's Czech Speedway Grand Prix saw Tai Woffinden take his first GP win. Then on Sunday in Le Mans, Scott Redding showed his class to take his first career Moto2 GP race win after a poor start. But it was Cal Crutchlow who impressed even the French with a stunning ride to a career best MotoGP result with 2nd place in the premier bike class despite carrying the painful aftermath of yet another practice crash to a very wet grid and seeing off the likes of Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, Andrea Dovisioso, not to mention the charging pole sitter Marc Marquez! Outstanding.
The French MotoGP exceeded my expectations in so many ways, check back for my BLOG, Road Trip to LeMans.
The action in France will be a distant memory by the time we get to Donington Park for this weekend's round 5 World Superbike action! But will the weather be kind? Either way it'll be a cracking good weekend, see you there.
Exciting changes are in prospect for UK television viewers as the new BT Sport MotoGP package was announced in London on May 9th. It might not please everyone, but you can be sure of innovation from a company looking to impress. Go for it BT!
