The collaboration between Ryan Dungey and Roger DeCoster was an extremely successful one.

This was a frequent site during Ryan's racing days, with a quick debrief at the podium.


It's a lot of fun when two champions are crowned on the same night. This was 2015, when both Cooper Webb and Ryan Dungey wrapped up titles.

Going to the web page - here , this exact page - on a desktop computer using Chrome , in the top right of the podcast "player" built into the page there's a "3 dot" menu - click on the 3 dots and you'll see an option "download this episode" which will allow you to easily download the podcast as an mp3 to play it later locally on a phone or send it to email / dropbox etc to then access it on your phone to playback as a normal mp3 file for example.

I created a screenshot illustrating how to download the podcast as an mp3 but I can only add a photo to this post by linking to a photo URL or else I'd upload the screenshot.

As I was getting into moto in 1975, The Man set the standard for technical interest in the bike itself, a strict diet and training sequence ( unheard of at that time in the USA ), and always a respect for his fellow competitors. He is a true legend not only as a rider, but also in how he meticulously prepared himself and his machinery. Never a prima donna, he always carried himself in the manner a World Champion would be expected to.
