Oh nm, I looked on the MotoGP site and it looked like there was a race this weekend. But I guess that's just the free practice. Too bad that's not on TV.

We can hardly wait to watch the race! Sure wish that ALL the motorcycle roadracing started early to mid-March.

If MotoGP started like the WSB, then its going to be an exciting season.

Yeah Speed will Air MotoGP but not WRC Rally.
They have become a total NASCAR Channel. They might as well change the name from.

Speed VIsion to NASCAR Vission.

I agree. It's like there's a 4-5 hour NASCAR race early in the day on Fox. Then there's another 4-5 hours of post race coverage on Speed. Plus you have NASCAR Nation or whatever it seems every night of the week. Definitely a bit too much coverage. But it's understandable as it's the most popular sport in the US behind the NFL only. So of course that is going to be most of the coverage.

Now they do have some other good programming. Like TWT on Tuesday's is like 3-4 hours of motorcycle related shows. Plus there are all kinds of like classic car shows.

It's too bad there isn't enoug F1 coverage. That's like the NASCAR for Europe.

The reason sportbike shows are not on is because people are not demanding it. SpeedTV puts on what will be watched by the most amount of people so they can charge the most for commercials. All TV stations work this way. So my guess is not enough sport bike enthusiasts are writing, calling, emailing Speed to make their voice heard.

Wad is right. We should probably count our blessings that there are not show about the life styles of sportbikers. I can see it now...... Lot of tatoos, stripers, speeding , stunts and police chases. That the best case scenario, I know it would be really awful if 2wheel tuesday started talking about what most of us do on the twisty back roads every weekend.
