The author

Carmelo Ezpeleta is the CEO of Dorna Sports (organizing body of MotoGP).

Julian Ryder has been a motorcycle journalist since 1980 and editor of the Official MotoGP Season Review since its inception in 2004. In the late 1980s Julian was running Road Racer magazine when he was invited to Eurosport's studios to see a motorcycle Grand Prix being broadcast. The regular commentator was stranded at another event so the producer gave Julian the microphone. From then on commentating has been mixed with writing and nowadays Julian is on BT Sport's MotoGP commentary team. From 1993 to 2000 Julian was a member of the Sky Sports team that brought the golden era of World Superbike and Carl Fogarty's championships to British bike fans. In 2001 he moved to Eurosport to commentate on the last year of 500cc Grand Prix racing and then 12 seasons of MotoGP. Julian transferred to the top class of racing at the same time as Valentino Rossi burst on to the scene and he has commentated on all of Rossi's races since then. Julian's books include Honda's V-Force and an official biography of Carl Fogarty.

As a motorcycle racer, Mat Oxley is an Isle of Man TT winner and lap record holder. As a writer, he has been plying his craft for 40 years and is revered for his sharp reporting of MotoGP for magazines and websites around the world, including Bike, Motor Sport, Motorcycle News and Performance Bikes. Ever since Rossi burst into Grand Prix racing in 1996, Oxley has followed his career closely and in 2001 wrote a landmark first biography, MotoGenius, with full cooperation from Valentino Rossi and his family. Among Oxley’s other acclaimed books are Mick Doohan: Thunder from Down Under (1999), Valentino Rossi: Portrait of a Speed God (2002), Stealing Speed (2009) and Valentino Rossi: All His Races (2022). Married with two children, he lives in north London.

Neil Spalding writes about technical aspects of MotoGP for a selection of motorcycle magazines and newspapers throughout the world as well as for the Official MotoGP Season Review. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed book MotoGP Technology. When not at the circuits Neil runs Sigma Performance, which designs and sells slipper clutches for racing motorcycles.
