    MotoGP 2020 (Spoilers)


    The whole Yamaha team news is kinda a huge deal.

    It makes a lot of sense, I'm glad to see Lin forcing the issue. I think I'm ready for a world without Rossi. I might not like it, but I'm ready.

    InterestIng. Iím a fan of this move.

    Also read NBC is picking up coverage this season. Say hello to commercial interruption. If true Iíll definitely be getting the GP pass again.

    Bummer on Rossi, but agree that it is time.

    Last time I went to a motogp race was Indy on Edwards last season, got the VIP access and was able to attend some awesome celebrations with riders and crew.
    Just purchased VIP tickets for Texas, should be exciting

    Yamaha is doing the right thing and it sounds like Rossi is playing ball. If only the Pats and Brady could sort this same crap out.

    Honestly the NBC pickup of GP racing moves the needle exactly zero for me. I'm 100% happy with paying my $150 for VideoPass for the season, you can't beat the coverage. I hope it brings more people to the sport. I'll set my DVR to record it so they can get my viewership vote.

    I have the nbc sports cycling subscription and it’s pretty good and commercial free for ~$60. If they offer a moto one at a similar rate that’s pretty good, but doubt you’ll get MotoGP level coverage. Likely just races, practices, and replays. I enjoy the extra content, especially with Simon Crafar instead of Dylan. Dylan sucked. After a year Simon really found his stride.

    Re: MotoGP 2020 (Spoilers)

    Fabio had a great rookie year. It will be interesting to see if he flounders for a couple of seasons under the load of development work on the factory team. That is pretty common. I think Rossi stayed a few years too many. Still a fan, but he doesn't bring what he used to to the series. I like his moto2 and VR46 academy contributions more than his riding these days.

    Yeah that’s fine and all...but you can’t tell me it doesn’t take it up a notch when we get a race the old man in the hunt for a podium.

    Any chance Zarco redeems himself? Last year couldn't have been much worse for him...

    Looks like TV coverage will be shite now that NBC has taken over. My cable guide show a ďhighlightĒ wsbk show on Monday night. No races. WTF

    Iím buying the wsbk and gp video passes tonight. I read that BSB will be shown on a MotorTrend video pass this season, cost is less than $30 for the subscription. May grab that one too...

    Fellow LRRS racer and TTD instructor Keith Draghi just put together a MotoGP fantasy league that a bunch of us have already joined.

    The league is named "LRRS Racing" and the code to find it is AN5WU473

    WOW!! What a race 1!!! The WSBK field is stacked, this should be a wild season. The coverage with the video pass is worth every penny.

    Was a great race. I thought the field was tiny though. motogp is a lot bigger/deeper now. Strange reversal. Did Honda money scare away the private teams?

    Small field, but the talent is concentrated - I hope it makes for an exciting season. The Sykes interview was pretty comical, and gives some more insight to what a tool Rea is.

    Superpole race was great! Race 2 was kinda wonky. I don't like when the slow the pace too much like that. The bicycle race tactic thing doesn't do it for me. I want to see bikes at the limit, and riders sliding near the end instead on running into the back of each other the whole race.

    Any day Rea gets beat is a good day though!

    Season is off to a great start! Rea has his hands full, so glad his plan for race 2 didnít work. Iím hoping Bautista can figure out the Honda, and Iím expecting Redding to be on the top step very soon..

    I was looking for the MotoGP thread in this wbsk thread. But hey looks like Qatar is cancelled due to travel restrictions.
    Coronavirus is the real deal.

    Edit: looks like moto 2 & 3 will take place since teams were already there.
