MCN Sport 2012 review out now!

Published: 04 December 2012

In the latest issue of MCN Sport, out now, we look back on an eventful year in motorcycle racing which saw three racers retire at the top of their game. We speak to Casey Stoner, Max Biaggi and Ryan Farquhar about their careers and retirement.

We also bring you all the inside news from Valentino Rossi's first test on his new Yamaha M1.

Also: riding off-road with Rea, Crutchlow, McGuinness and Knight, Tom Sykes on his best WSB season yet and just how mad do you have to be to race in Moto2?


Freeze frame
Jorge Lorenzo crashes out of the final MotoGP race of 2012 in spectacular fashion after attempting to pass CRT rider James Ellison.

Chasing the balance
Every time some fool changes the rules in MotoGP it kicks off another mad dash to re-optimise the bike. And strangely enough, it usually boils down to getting rid of all that heat.


The real Tom Sykes
He spent three years in WSB getting nowhere - then suddenly exploded onto the scene as Max Biaggi's main challenger. So who is this extraordinary Yorkshireman?




Arrivederci Max Biaggi
Just before he announced his retirement from racing after 21 years at the high end of world championship contention, 2012 WSB champion Max Biaggi granted an audience to MCN Sport.


The future in his hands
Michael Dunlop's naked ambition to win a Superbike TT is pushing the maverick road racer towards taking the plunge with one of the top teams. MCN Sport asks him: 'What's the craic?'
