How to care for your motorcycle leathers

If you ride in an open-face helmet you’ll know how much it can sting when a bug hits you. Your bike kit is constantly being bombarded with dirt, water and road salt, as well all those insects that weld themselves into the grain pattern of your leathers. As the clothing moves, the bugs and grime abrade the surface, which breaks down the thin protective polyurethane layer that’s over almost all motorcycle leather kit. Lose that layer and the hide becomes more absorbent, and more susceptible to weakening.

MotoGP: World Championship race results from Portimao

Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Tech 3) took a stunning pole position on Saturday at the Grande Premio MEO de Portugal, putting him in the perfect position to face down his home race with a clear view to Turn 1. And that clear view was never interrupted again once the lights went out as the Portuguese rider rode the race of his life to disappear at the front and decimate the field. Premier class win number two, Tech 3’s second win, another impressive victory for KTM in 2020… and in the first Portuguese Grand Prix since 2012, and the first ever held at Portimão. Sounds like a good Sunday’s work on home turf.

MotoGP: Will there be a record 10th different race winner?

“History-making” has a propensity to get overused, but the 2020 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship has truly deserved the moniker. Nine different winners in the premier class – equalling the all-time record set in 2016 – is something worth celebrating. And the best news? There’s still a race left…
Rewinding to Jerez, it was Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) who took to the top step first, before rookie Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) became the second man to win in 2020 as he stormed Brno – becoming South Africa’s first premier class winner. Then it was veteran Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in the Austrian GP as he got back to winning ways, before Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Tech 3) became another first timer on the top step – and the first Portuguese rider to take victory in the premier class – as he outfoxed them all in the Styrian GP.
