Here we go again. Welcome back if you’ve listened before, and if it’s your first time, it’s great to have you here!

What’s happening in this episode? Well, a few days ago the Int. GS Trophy 2020 bike was unveiled live on Facebook and Instagram. This special model is fresh off a dedicated assembly line in Berlin and will be the same bike that all the participants will use at the international finals over in New Zealand at the Int. GS Trophy 2020. I speak to BMW Motorrad head of product management, Christian Pingitzer, about this equipment-laden F 850 GS special edition and discuss all the special parts it is fitted with.

After that, I have a quick chat with Tommy Kerns, who you will no doubt have seen in A Bavarian Soul Story – BMW Motorrad’s cool film series about the roots of the Concept R 18 and the journey to series production of the Big Boxer cruiser.

Welcome back and thanks for joining us again. Have we got something special for you this time? Oh yes! Sit back and be inspired by this exclusive interview with Smiths Racing BMW rider Peter Hickman, who has had an amazing year of success on the roads. At the time of writing these notes, he’s already enjoyed three wins and two podiums at the Isle of Man TT, victory at the North West 200, and a ‘magnificent’ 7 out of 7 at the Ulster Grand Prix – as well as claiming the outright lap record. He’s officially the ‘fastest road racer in the world’ and tells us all about his incredible year on the RR so far – with the Macau Grand Prix and British Superbike Championship showdown still to come!

A big shout out to www.greenlight.tv for letting us share some of the amazing race commentary from the UGP and to ‘Hicky’ (follow him @hickyracer60) for slowing down just enough to allow us to catch up with you for this podcast. Stay tuned for the next one, which will include some BIG Int. GS Trophy news!

Welcome back and thanks for joining us again. This time we’ll take a journey ‘back to the future’ and speak to Dr. Ralf Rodepeter about the new Vision DC Roadster – and how the brand’s past is already influencing its electrified future.

Then, we’ll be looking ahead to the International GS Trophy in New Zealand and speaking to Thomas Fischer, who is responsible for BMW Motorrad’s North African and Middle Eastern markets, both of which are fielding teams for the first time in the Trophy.

We’ll also have a chat with Peet Gerrards, one of the lucky guys from Team Nederland, another newbie team that is making its Int. GS Trophy debut in 2020.

We’ll finish things off with a quick chat about the upcoming Pure&Crafted festival, which is coming to Amsterdam on 28 September. Be there!
