AMA Pro Roadracing: Road America (Cheesy Spoilers)

Well, the AMA Pro Roadracing season resumes after a looonnngggg hiatus at Road America, located in the lovely verdant hills of the Kettle Moraine, not far from Elkhart Lake WI. I'll be there, as I have every year since 1985. Got my Lipidor packed, anticipating Bratwurst overdose...

Television coverage begins at 2:30 PM on Saturday and at 3:00 PM on Sunday on the CBS sports network. The only strictly "live" coverage will be the Superbike races, which still beats the fuck out of SpeedTV's practice of airing the races at midnight.

Day one racing will be re-run staring at 1 PM on Sunday and race 2 coverage will be re-run Sunday Night staring at 9 PM. (All times EST)

Less mechanicals for the Triumphs wouldn't break my heart.

Hopefully these races will make in online at some point soon after the race since I don't bet cbs sportsnetwork.

Just ten riders in Superbike?

Looks like Hayes has them covered, so far.

Josh is a machine!

Come back Mat!

CB isn't too bad either. Don't know about the "MotoGP ready" hyperbole though.

Graves/Yamaha is sure bringing it home again in the two main classes. And with the sportbike market in the dumps I suspect that it will be easier for them to maintain momentum than for the others to step up their programs to match them. I think a lot of the other teams have real potential, but Graves has the total package as Yosh did in years past.

The KTM 1190 is the best looking bike on the grid (yeah, I'm biased ).


Interesting first broadcast. My opinion is mixed-- joy that it was picked up and mostly decent coverage, though some of the camera angles/pans seemed odd, didn't they?

But...
1) in the track overview, the graphic showed "sectors" while Ru$$ell talked corners. I guess they were trying to do as F1 does-- but they never talked about sector times anyway. Speaking of $cott- I wonder if he gets a bonus each time he says "outbroke".

2) the announcer in DSB needs to tone down the breathless schoolgirl excitement level.

3) they overplayed the "school" theme by about 400%

4) the camera work during the "meet the racers" segments were a bit reality showish (not needed imo).

Curious: Those of you who watched the CBS Sports coverage, was it in HD? My provider, Verizon FIOS, apparently doesn't offer a HD version of the channel.

CBS Sports did a good job! Much better then speed, and you don't have to worry about NASCAR bustin' in on the broadcast. Well done
