Former British Eurosport commentator Toby Moody will not be part of the new BT Sport MotoGP coverage.

Moody wrote on his Twitter page (@TobyMoody): "Hey Twitter followers; I wanted you to hear direct from me that I will not part of the UK commentary line-up for MotoGP in 2014. I've worked on MotoGP for 18 years, something I'm very proud of. I'll still be around so will see more great racing. I will return to a TV screen near you very soon; you guys will know first when I do. Thank you for all your support. Plenty of voice left!"

BT Sport has acquired the exclusive live MotoGP broadcasting rights for the UK from the start of this season, ending coverage on both the BBC and British Eurosport. BT is yet to announce its commentary line-up, with familiar voices from the Eurosport, BBC and Dorna TV coverage among those linked to the new project - including Moody's long-time broadcasting partner Julian Ryder.

BT Sport is free to BT broadband customers and available on subscription for non-broadband customers.
