these teams will be run as commercial enterprises,meaning riders will have to bring proper money,once the sponsors see how little tv coverage they will get,they will be gone,second rate equipment with riders not at the required level,what is the point of crt again ?

I have to agree, I think all CRT's progress good or bad will be great to watch. It certainly has taken up a lot of server space since going live, which can only be a good thing. Judging by last weeks wild activity during the testing days, a lot of people taking interest, even if they want to see it fail. Good for sponsors and I am sure as this is partly Carmelo's idea they will get plenty of airtime.
Watching the BQR on the video's pretty sure they were using a standard engine in the end (pictures of a stripped roadbike in the garage) and they were having terrible grip problems on the rear. Its only their 2nd time out.
