HUGE DEAL: 24MX Tent Sale

Top Ten: Podcasts in 2018

A look at the most popular MX Vice podcasts

· 4 minutes read

The deal of the day on 24MX.

An eventful year is about to draw to a close, hence why it seemed like a brilliant time to reflect on everything that has gone on over the last twelve months. The post-race podcasts on MX Vice have been extremely popular, for instance, so it seemed like it would be interesting to see what ones were the most listened to. Jeffrey Herlings obviously emerged at the top of that list, but there are some surprising ones further down the order. The top-ten podcasts from the season that was are below.

Jeffrey Herlings | 2018 Off-Season

I am pleased to see that this made it in at number one. There were a lot of MX Vice podcasts with Jeffrey Herlings this season, as he was great at giving us access, but this was arguably the best. Herlings was extremely open, honest and frank when discussing his road to the premier-class title and there were a few laughs in there as well. If only we had even more time… – @_LewisPhillips

Jeffrey Herlings | 2018 MXGP of Indonesia

Speaking of laughs, this was definitely one of the funniest podcasts of the season. Thinking back to what went on at Pangkal Pinang is simply mind-blowing and also hilarious. Red Bull KTM desperately tried to stop Jeffrey Herlings from pushing past his limits, but he stuck to his guns and got the job done. Herlings was, once again, honest when discussing the situation and slipped in plenty of jokes as he basked in glory. – @_LewisPhillips

Jeffrey Herlings | 2018 MXGP of Argentina

It is hardly surprising that an interview from the first round features on this list, because interest is at an all-time high at that point. The incredible charge that Jeffrey Herlings put on in that second moto undoubtedly had a lot to do with this podcast being ranked so high. Who could possibly forget that last-lap pass? What a way to kick off the season. It was certainly a sign of things to come. – @_LewisPhillips

Roger DeCoster | 2018 Motocross of Nations

It has become a tradition to speak to Roger DeCoster after each edition of the Motocross of Nations, as he is always honest when assessing exactly what occurred on track. This year was no different, despite the crushing loss at home, and the fact that he did not just hide away obviously pulled people in. I think the discussions about sending a team to Assen next year really got the attention of fans across the globe though. – @_LewisPhillips

Shaun Simpson | 2018 MXGP of Turkey

It is a surprise to see this on the list. The pre-race podcasts were something new that I tried out towards the end of the season and I guess this means that the concept works! This interview occurred just days after Shaun Simpson was told that he would not be riding for Team Great Britain at the Motocross of Nations and, at that point, he had not nailed down a deal for the upcoming season, so there were plenty of reasons for people to listen. – @_LewisPhillips

Justin Barcia | 2018 Motocross of Nations

Everyone wanted to hear what the riders on Team USA had to say after the Motocross of Nations. It is that simple! The guys deserve credit for actually doing interviews too. I gave Justin Barcia the option to opt out of this one, but he was all for it and candid when assessing the situation. It was obvious that he would like revenge in the future too. – @_LewisPhillips

Jeffrey Herlings | 2018 MXGP of Turkey

Hey, look who it is! Jeffrey Herlings was a star on the post-race podcasts all year and, once again, this one had it all. There were laughs, insightful comments and more. I presume that everyone tuned into this, because of the fact that Tim Gajser gave him a run in the second moto? It was peculiar to see that and obviously everyone wanted to hear if there was a reason for it, which there was… – @_LewisPhillips

Aaron Plessinger | 2018 Motocross of Nations

This was one of those moments that left me in awe. I was stood doing this podcast with Aaron Plessinger whilst around one hundred fans stood around us and listened in. They reacted to everything that was said with laughs and cheers. It was just surreal and something that I never thought would happen, you know? Crazy. – @_LewisPhillips

Conrad Mewse | 2018 Blaxhall

I am actually surprised that this Conrad Mewse podcast made it onto the list, rather than the one that happened at the Grand Prix of Belgium. It is even a shock to see something from the Maxxis British Championship here! The penalties that were handed out at the third round, Blaxhall, had a lot to do with that. Mewse was coming off a tough couple of weeks as well, so there were plenty of questions that had to be answered. – @_LewisPhillips

Tommy Searle | MXGP of Argentina

What a podcast this was! This is definitely a personal favourite from the last twelve months. Tommy Searle was robbed at the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina and thieves left with the television from his apartment and his passport. The situation was obviously quite serious, yet Tommy told the story in a hilarious way and made this a timeless classic. There were lots of laughs in the Tommy Searle podcasts all year. – @_LewisPhillips
