Steve & the BBC’s MotoGP coverage

Steve started commentating on BBC’s MotoGP coverage in 2002. Currently working along-side his good friend Charlie Cox, the pair are joined by BBC presenter Matt Roberts and pit-lane reporter Azi Farni.

Steve and the rest of the BBC MotoGP gang travel around the world to bring you the best coverage of the MotoGP World Championship - including pre-race buildup, exclusive rider interviews, live race coverage and expert post-race analysis.

Full coverage of the Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP races is shown on BBC2 and then again on the BBC's iPlayer service for the next seven days.

Qualifying from every race is available on the BBC ‘Red Button’ and the BBC Sport website.
