2013 Catalunya Grand Prix FIM VideoThe FIM has released video highlights of this past weekend’s 2013 Catalunya MotoGP.
The race was dominated by one rider – Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo. Starting from third on the grid, the two-time MotoGP Champion took the holeshot ahead of pole-sitter Dani Pedrosa, and went on to lead all 25 laps.But it wasn’t an easy win. The Repsol Honda duo of Pedrosa and Marc Marquez kept the pressure on Lorenzo for most of the GP, but Lorenzo rode patiently, not making any mistakes.And when things were winding down to the checkered flag, Lorenzo would pull ahead of the RC213V riders. He would eventually finish 1.7 seconds ahead of Pedrosa, and 1.8 ahead of Marquez.This was Lorenzo’s third win of 2013 MotoGP, and he is now only seven points behind the points leader, Pedrosa.Attached below are video highlights of Catalunya MotoGP.

Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
