Thanks Dorna for killing MotoGP in the UK. How can moving live coverage from a free to view channel (licence fee excepted) to a pay to view channel be a good move? Look at boxing, hardly anyone gives a toss about the sport anymore because the only way anyone can watch a fight worth seeing is to pay monthly or PPV. Same for cricket. Dorna will not grow the sport with this move and will reap what they sow with reduced advertising revenues, which will impact on the teams and riders. Bad move, no, terrible move. Dorna are a joke.

I have been watching MotoGP on Eurosport since the famous Rossi v Biaggi finger flicking at Suzuka 2001. I have always loved listening to Toby Moody, Julian Ryder, Randy Mamola (remember him) & Neil Spalding!

I hear that there will be five members in the MotoGP team. I hope they use Toby & Julian in commentary, Randy in pit lane again and Matt Roberts to present the show with Neil Spalding or Keith Huewen as a pundit!

Screwed over by the so called big companies again. We lost Randy Mamola back in 2009 when the BBC decided to wrench the Moto GP away from the best commentary team in the history of the sport and now i suppose BT will do the same. So its goodbye Toby, Jules and Spalders and hello to the ineptitude of people who really don't give a damn about our sport. Who can remember the priceless remarks from the BBC'S Jenny Gow referring to Moto GP participants as 'DRIVERS'. Insulting in the extreme. I work long and hard all week and the prospect of weekends listening to Spalders and Co's intelligent and informative remarks always made the weeks pass quicker. Sadly no more. Gutted absolutely gutted.
