MotoGP » Jennie Gow replaces Suzi Perry in BBC line-up


She might be a vast improvement over Suzi and her pathetic fawning over Edwards at every given opportunity. The real issue is the BBC's abysmal coverage. Switching channel half way through a race, not bothering to show any podium celebrations or post podium interviews. I can't see them delivering anything other than the same sub standard coverage this year. Thank God we have the choice of Eurosport and their dedicated, thorough and vastly superior coverage. To be honest though, so long as I can watch Eurosport I could care less what the BBC does, they're irrelevant.

Cutting off coverage completely just as Rossi is crowned the new world champion. Would you have seen them do that to Jensen Button just as he's about to pop the cork on the champagne, I don't think so. Giving the sport practically zero promotion and then harping on about how "committed" they are, what complete and utter dogs testes. Why don't they just admit they have no interest in the sport and made a mistake taking live coverage away from someone who actually gives a toss and keeping it to themselves when they couldn't give a monkeys and see the sport as an annoyance and an inconvenience at best. The only downside to Eurosport is Toby can let his F1 bias show from time to time.

I find it very hard indeed to figure out how anyone could defend the BBC's poor coverage. Yes, they have starting grid interviews before the race, where you'll see Suzie fawn over JT, Colin and Mr Burgess without asking any insightful questions all thw while batting her eyes at them. Cocks and Parrish are hopeless, well done, you used to be Barry Sheenes team mate, and how many races did you actually win during your time in MotoGP? Not as many as a certain Mr Mamola I can bet. Matt Roberts is the only saving grace the BBC has, he's been there for years and knows what he's talking about, which is something new for the BBC. Switching channels half way through a race...

MotoGP » BBC explains Sepang MotoGP coverage


Now if they have failed to meet set standards, which, let's face it, any standards no matter how low would be higher than the BBC have dished out this year, then Dorna should tear up the contract or at the very least demand the BBC up their game and put them on probation. Any more of the lack lustre substandard quality televising and their contract will be null and void at the end of the season. They keep harping on about being committed and real life bike fans themselves. How on earth would any self respecting real life bike fan try and defend the indefensible. It's not a crime to admit you're wrong. Moreover, you'd get more respect if you actually did come out and say sorry, we're rubbish!

MotoGP » BBC explains Sepang MotoGP coverage


All their pathetic pre season attempts to reassure us they were "totally committed" to MotoGP. If this is their idea of "totally committed" then I'd hate to see how they treat something they don't give a monkey's about. The original reason that Eurosport lost live rights was because of it's Eurosport Player that came into direct competition with MotoGP's own version on their website. So the BBC didn't "win" a bidding war as much as they were given the exclusive rights as there was no other competition bidding. However, the contract must have some stipulations about the quality of the programming broadcast and the BBC's just can not possibly meet even the lowest of standards. ..

MotoGP » Official: Ben Spies to MotoGP in 2010.


As a Toseland fan and a Brit I really wanted JT to do well in MotoGP. I'm not blinkered enough to ignore the fact he just hasn't performed this season. Continually pootling round in 12th or 13th is not good enough when your team mate is beating you by at least 5 positions at pretty much every race. I wish Ben all the luck for next year as he's now racing against the very elite and one could argue almost untouchable top 4. I can see Yamaha thinking ahead here. Give Lorenzo a 1 year contract then if he spits his dummy out again next season you've got Spies to replace him if he's proven himself and will have a full season under his belt so wont be victim of the rookie rule.

MotoGP » MotoGP releases TV viewing figures.


A highlights show would be a great idea. It would also negate the need for the presenters to dumb down everything during race coverage as they could use the highlight show to gently introduce people to the finer points of MotoGP. Also, imagine how many more viewers it might have had if it had got any promotion at all from the BBC. Why they don't promote it is a complete mystery. As for Cox! Just get rid of him. I don't care if he's contracted for another 5 years, pay him off and send him back to Australia. He single handedly ruins every single race coverage with his inept pointless jokes and awful analysis.
