Motorcycle Racing on TV

The next MotoGP race is now on May 23rd in France, because of the volcano in Iceland messing up flight schedules.
Today, April 25th from 3 to 5 pm, World Superbike is on the Speed cable TV channel. Even someone who does not ride at all can enjoy watching these races- I think they are more interesting than Nascar- they turn left and right and there is more passing and a lot of leaning in the turns.May 2, 2010 at 3:26 pm #26114
The second MotoGP race was in Spain this morning (Sunday May 2). It is being replayed at 4pm eastern time today on the Speed cable TV channel. I guess the volcano problems were worked out sooner than planned.May 23, 2010 at 11:52 am #26677eternal05Participant
Got up super-early to watch it, so it better be worth it! Nothing worse than falling asleep during a boring race.May 23, 2010 at 8:40 pm #26657
The last afternoon reshowing of the MotoGP race was taken over by Nascar trucks, after a weather delay. Tomorrow, Sunday May 23rd the race will be shown live at 8 am on the Speed cable TV channel. Here are the top ten qualifiers:
1. Valentino Rossi on a Yamaha, to take his first pole position of the 2010 season. and the prime starting spot at the French circuit for the first time since 2005.
2. Jorge Lorenzo made it a Yamaha one-two.
3. Dani Pedrosa on a Honda.
4. Casey Stoner on a Ducati.
5. Nicky Hayden on a Ducati.
6. Randy de Puniet on a Honda.
7. Andrea Dovizioso on a Honda.
8. Colin Edwards on a Yamaha.
9. Loris Capirossi on a Suzuki.
10. Aleix Espargaró on a Ducati.
Ben Spies crashed during qualifying for 12th place, but will likely race tomorrow even though he has a sore ankle.May 23, 2010 at 8:45 pm #26687
I also got up early to watch the race- I liked seeing Lorenzo pass Rossi, and I miss the short speeches by the top 3 finishers after the race that they used to show. Now they put some interviews with the Americans first, since they are not usually in the top 3. Bad luck for Stoner and Spies crashing out.June 6, 2010 at 2:36 pm #26919
Rossi crashed during practice and rolled instead of sliding on his butt, broke his leg bad, and will be out for most if not all of the season. The race in Italy was at 8am eastern time today, but the Speed channel is reshowing it at 6 pm eastern time today, Sunday June 6.
