Holy shit what an interview.. Cole Gress is the dude who ran Suzuki's amateur program and basically farmed everyone from Millsaps to Dungey and was also responsible for the partnerships with Makita and Rockstar before Suzuki shit canned him. He sounds like a smart dude but also sounds like he may of thrown back a few shots of liquid courage before doing this pod, as he doesn't hold back anything and goes straight TMZ style sharing dirt and details about everything from the crazy version of Tony Alessi to Colleen Millsaps to the shit show that was JLaw, Izzi and the Bills Pipes team.

This, is a must listen. http://pulpmx.com/podcast/guest-cole-gress-2/

In his time running Suzuki’s amateur motocross for years, Cole recounts some memories of picking up Davi Millsaps, trying to get Mike Alessi, what went wrong with J Law and Izzi, his thoughts on Suzuki now, being let go and much more

Thanks for the tip, I have a 3 hour drive each way to a race tomorrow. This should kill the first hour.

I listened up to the mtf tractor contract yesterday. Good one so far. Funny listening to him talk. Smart dude who has been around, but he sounds like this guy..

The guy doesn't get a paycheck from the moto industry and tells it how he see's it. I dig it

Just excellent. Definitely one of the better episodes

Matthes has it when it comes to interviewing. Anyone who has the time or needs to pass the time. Go back through his classics section. Download the riders from the 80s and 90s. Mechanics. Team managers. You will get a whole new respect and picture of what MX and SX was. Lot of them you will want to hear more than once.

Can someone help an old man out. I’m not into the podcast as I really have no idea where to go and what to look for. These links are easy for me to click n listen to.
The first one I listened to was the tony Alessi and I thought that was great.

So do you download pulp MX and then search for podcast? I use a iPhone. Any help would be appreciated and I know I must sound like a Effin idiot. I can build a house but technology has me stumped

There is also a pulpmx app for IOS if that would be easier... for a few bucks.

I appreciate that. I have hours of dental work over the next few months and want to load up some of these podcast to make the time n the chair for by quickly. I will opt for that app, anything to make things easier is worth a few bucks.

Thanks so much!

The purple podcast icon on your iPhone is where you need to be. Looks like a signal been in White with a purple background. The search function is on the bottom right corner. Search for Pulp within the app and you will see all sorts of stuff ranging from the classic volumes, fly racing 60 show, pulp mx show, etc. click subscribe and they will automatically download when the new show has been added. Fool proof and the best free way to do it. I never have any issues.

Good luck on the dental work!

Kenny, on your iPhone look for the purple icon that says Podcasts. If you don't see the icon, try swiping down and searching for it. Once you're in the Podcast app, click search, and type Steve Matthes. Click on The Steve Matthes Show. From there, you should see a button to SUBSCRIBE (if you wish). You should see the most recent episodes in there. Now here's the real golden nugget: search for Steve Matthes Classics. There's Vol 1, Vol 2, and Vol 3. These archives provide endless content of amazing interviews Steve has been doing over the last 10 years with everyone you can think of in the sport from past and present. Get this far, and I'll be happy to recommend my personal favorites!! It's quite a glorious rabbit hole to go down. Aside from listening to them while driving in the car or working on bikes in the garage, I like popping in my ear buds when I lay down to go to sleep and listening to them as I doze off. GREAT stuff

I also find stitcher to be helpful if I'm not on my phone. If you like technical stuff go back and listen to his interview with Dave Arnold. Also Sean Hamblin one is also great.

Thanks for all the tips guys. I’m all set up and I listened to the Cole interview this morning....time flew by at work! I get a little burnt out on music all day long and now I’ve got a great option. I appreciate all the tips!

Bill's Pipes might have been a shit show but Matthes should have asked Cole about the WBR Rockstar team. That seemed like an epic clusterfuck.

The podcasts really do make the work day go by much faster. I'm bored out of my mind if I forget my ear buds.

Great podcast. I enjoyed it,some good stuff. laughing
Cole's talladega nights quote about the parents was hilarious.laughing
And about JLaw too "he was like a serial killer". laughing

I got a good chuckle out of the part where he talks about getting called into the meeting with the top Suzuki brass and he was like “there were Japanese people there I didn’t even know existed!” grin

Cole is super good people, and this podcast proves it. So open and honest about the shit show this sport I love can be.

Yeah ,the quote about the Japanese brass was funny.
I felt bad for him though...why they fired him.
Seemed like Suzuki dropped the ball on things and he was just informing someone in a personal way about it.

And yeah...
I didnt know there was any animosity between Tomac & AC in those days either.
Good stuff.

3/16/2018 8:58 PM

Which AC?

3/16/2018 9:06 PM

It sounds like he backstabbed Suzuki!

|

3/16/2018 10:59 PM

The content was great. But that dude was hard to listen to. I think he said "ya know" about 1737 times.

I don’t get how they expected him to retain/“sign” riders, without giving him the funding or a budget for contracts ???

kenny, since you have an iphone just use the “podcasts” app that’s already on your phone from apple. search pulpmx and steve matthes show

it’s literally as simple as that

you’ll be wondering how it was 3 finger clicks away all this time and you hadn’t used it!!!!

Anyone else think it could have gone on for a lot longer, he must have a lot more stories to tell
