Well thats MotoGP ruined aswell as F1!!!!! You can guarantee the coverage and presenters will be about half the quality of the beeb. Farewell MotoGP i will try and find you on dodgy internet sites - great!!!

In a way I kinda hoped dorna would completely screw up motogp, then they bought wsbk and now Im doubtful what the result will be.

Theres no going back from a five year deal anytime soon.

Dorna Bravo alienating one of your biggest markets hopefully this backfires for you in a big way and lose that precious thing you love soo much because we all know its not sport that you love.

Poll on MCN. is the email address for their TV coverage dpt.

All who are able should boycott BT and harm their advertising revenue as much as possible.

I hope Eurosport still get a slice.

The UK is not a huge market compared to Spain or Italy, or Japan etc, where bikes are part of the National culture.

Hence the price BT will pay is probably worth more than the loss of income from UK fans / BBC.

So let's hit BT where it hurts, not Dorna. Then BT will hopefully have to bail.

What a brainless decision. Certainly not based on getting the sport watched more, just a short term money now approach. It's about time they realised its not a mainstream sport in he UK.

Still, I guess I'll have more time to ride my bike now as I won't be going to BT just for this, simply too much hassle.

I must also put some blame on the bebn though, they've never bought into motogp, sketchy coverage, not advertised, not pushed in any way.

Thanks Dorna!

This will last a couple years before they realize they've just lost viewers and the sponsors pull out because they aren't getting the coverage.

Such BS, now you have to pay for so many different services to watch sports, I mean I have to have Sky and BT now just to be able to watch F1 and Moto GP? They charge you crazy prices when all you want is one channel for like a couple hours each month.

Nah I'll just not watch it thanx.
