MotoGP » What did you think of BT Sport's MotoGP coverage?


Guys, you all seem to be missing the point. MotoGP IS on the telly, maybe the switch to BT Sport was unexpected but it did happen. Eurosports coverage was banal at best, Toby Moody seemed to know nothing about bike racing and all he ever wanted to contribute was an anecdote about meeting someone famous at some point, who had no connection with Bikes at all. Jules was the knowledgable one and I used to enjoy the tech stuff he contributed. Having a collection of one time riders is a good thing. Hodgson's laps and his insight into the paddock have been great. JT is another world champion on a bike, and has experience of this very paddock. Jumbo is the best thing to a sofa and Keith's enthusiasm is second to none. I think the Tuesday night show is brilliant, we have never had that before anywhere. OK it trys to be "Top Gear" for bikes but that's not so bad is it.. Look we could be in the position that Sky would be the transmitters, how **** would that be!! I remember when they covered WSBK

MotoGP » What did you think of BT Sport's MotoGP coverage?


I dont actually agree with the comments made about Keith Huewen. I have met this guy a few times and whilst he aint a "buddy" he is above all else a fan. I regard his comments to be from a fans perspective. He is like Jumbo an ex racer (and a good ex racer) who still loves the sport. These ARE the people we need, full of enthusiasm and genuinely excited by what we all hold dear. The great Murray Walker was prone to the "occaisional" error but no one holds him up to ridicule. he had James Hunt alongside who would add the "insider" view. So all I ask is "cut the guy some slack" he works hard to portray in words, what we love. Lets just keep MotoGP live on TV

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test MotoGP Honda


Christ, not him again, moaning and sniping at anyone who finishes in front of him. He's had his time, and moved on. Some say Vale should have done the same, but unfortunayely for some, Vale has still got his game face on. Casey was (like Marc) a natural talent that could ride anything fast. But unlike most he moans about everything. Even in the LCR days he was blaming Michelin tyres. He should have learned from Vale and learned how to get things changed by asking and not telling So 25 (24/7/13) disagree with the comment, which bit?

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden confirms Ducati MotoGP exit


Personally, I dont think a money move to WSK would do his or anyones career any good at all. I do know this, that if I won the lottery soon I would front up the £million for Nicky to ride a Honda customer bike. I am not a particular fan of Nicky Hayden, afterall he did "steal" Vale's championship in 2006, but he did win the Title and deserves to be treated better than the Red Factory are doing to him. Afterall he as been there for a few years now and has shown his loyalty. Unfortunately, Ducati, dont seem to be in the real world when it comes to understandig whats needed, post Stoner.

MotoGP » Should MotoGP bikes be sold?


Back in the bad old days, you know the ones before dorna, when the FIM ran the show. we had grids of 40 riders qualified for the GP's (certainly in the uk). Now i dont want to open up any old wounds, but, the point i'm trying to make is, the bikes where available to buy by the public hence full grids for GP's and national championships all over the world. to me, full grids meant more exciting racing. Any good racers who wanted to compete at national, international and world championship level, could (subject to the right license being obtained). so if full grids could be achieved then more spectacular racing. Good for TV !!!!! I accept this is a bit simplistic but it's a way to go. Gary
