I certainly am!

I've just watched The Doctor, The Tornado & The Kentucky Kid on DVD and can recommend it to blow away those off season MotoGP blues. It's narrated by Ewan McGregor and follows the 2005 round at Laguna Seca.

It gives you real insight into the organisation of just one race out of a long season and gets you into the minds of the racers and what they go through. There's interviews with Hayden, Rossi, Edwards and Hopkins plus engineers etc. Hopkins actually plays a big role as the outsider on the day and I'm not sure why he isn't in the title of the DVD (although it's long enough I guess!).

If you've already seen it I'd be interested to know what you think. If you haven't, I suggest giving it a go. Highly recommended
