While attending the International Motorcycle Shows Atlanta stop recently I was able to spend some time with Mr. Daytona, 1993 WSBK Champion Scott Russell, talking about current events in motorcycle roadracing, both here in America and abroad.
Also on this episode, an interview with former pro racer, current Disalvo Speed Academy lead instructor and AMA Pro Road Racing crew chief Brian Stokes. We discuss Brian’s pro racing career, his role with the Speed Academy and his move from Graves Yamaha to Triumph where he will work as crew chief for Elena Myers in the 2014 AMA Daytona Sport Bike Series.

I just posted up an interview over on the BRI site that I did with real roads racer Brandon Cretu. Brandon is one of the few Americans currently competing at the Isle of Man TT. This years event gets underway in just about a weeks time so Brandon is already on the island getting ready for practice sessions that take place in the week leading up to the TT. I spoke with Brandon just a few days before he left home last week. Follow the below link to listen:
Sorry for laying down on the job but things have been a bit crazy for the last few months. The day job, domestic chores, rental property and (pardon the cliche) life in general has conspired against some of the things I’d rather be doing. It’s not all bad though as the BRI podcast is rolling along pretty well and I’ve gotten to go on some great weekend long rides. I’ve also attended a couple of rounds of the AMA Pro Roadracing series as working media and came away with some with some good interviews with some of the stars of that sport.
Speaking of AMA Pro Roadracing, I’m working on a piece about former Daytona Sport Bike champion and current points leader Martin Cardenas that I hope to have posted up soon.
Thanks for your patience and check back in soon as I intend to start posting stuff more regularly. In the meantime check out the latest episodes over at Bench Racers International Podcast www.benchracersinternational.com for all of your motorcycle roadracing highlights.
