The 250 & 125cc Review 2009 covers the highs and lows of the last ever quarter-litre class title, as well as the fight for the single-cylinder championship. Hiroshi Aoyama’s historical triumph in the 250cc class and Julián Simón’s success over British team-mate Bradley Smith at the 125cc level are both revisited, with essential action highlights from each round of both championships. You can find out further details here.
The Evolution of a Species DVD is one for the die-hard MotoGP fan, as detailed attention is paid to the story of how the motorcycles on today’s grid have developed since the first days of the 4-stroke machines in 2002. The stories behind the Ducati Desmosedici, Honda RCV, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-RR, Suzuki GSV-R and Yamaha YZR-M1 are all explained, with interviews from Crew chiefs, team bosses and top engineers. Rossi, Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa, Colin Edwards and Nicky Hayden and legends Mick Doohan, Freddie Spencer and Max Biaggi are some of the riders who give an insight into what it is really like to ride a MotoGP bike. Plenty of close-ups, behind-the-scenes footage from garages and racing clips make for superb viewing, and there is also a look at the new Moto2 prototypes as well.
