American comedian and TV star Bill Burr has declared his love of MotoGP, espousing the action on the Joe Rogen Podcast.
Burr, who has his own set of Netflix stand-up specials, and roles in The Mandalorian and Breaking Bad, has been a fan since 2015 and says that MotoGP is in a class of its own when it comes to excitement.
“I’ve been watching since 2015, so I’m new to the sport. If you need excitement, motorcycle racing is where it’s at, MotoGP is the best racing out there, said Burr.
“They had a race that you’d put in a Hollywood film. MotoGP is the shit. They had me off the couch, miming rolling on and off the throttle and screaming at the fucking TV.
“They’re basically doing 160, 170, 180 miles per hour, almost bumping into each other like they’re racing on horses, which is dangerous enough!”
“What I like with this racing is that in three or four races last year, on the final lap, there were two guys who would pass each-other four or five times
“You want to try to be the latest on the brakes but not overshoot the turn. There’s just so much sh*t you just learn as you’re watching. These guys are fucking incredible.”
