For all those suffering withdrawal symptoms due to the off-season, then Duke Video may have something to ease the pain slightly.
They have just released a new DVD called “MotoGP: The Route to Glory”, which is basically conversations with current and past MotoGP legends interspersed with exclusive race footage. Each racer talks about their own personal path into premier class racing and discuss the ups and downs of their chosen profession.
We’ve not seen it yet, so can’t comment on how good it is, but we suspect it may not go into a huge amount of depth as it is only an hour long – anyway, might make a good stocking filler or a welcome bit of respite over the Christmas period. It is available now, and the best pricing can be found on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
