Excellent JLo article, on CNN, snagged from Krop's twitter feed.

So, as it appears the racing might actually be interesting again this year, I think I'd like to subscribe to motogp.com. For all of you who have subscribed to it in the past, can I watch any race at any time on any of my devices? As in, either watch the race live (and commercial free) or later on in the day.
I'm so sick of SpeedTV coverage, and the fact that they won't even televise the race if it interferes with their precious NASCAR.

Be great to watch some real battles at the front...please no parades anymore....

You can watch the races later. The website has a no spoiler page that I have saved in my favorites, so you've got no worries. Also, it's well worth the money.

I watch on PC and iPhone, no problem. Yep, subscription gives you access to all past races and replays and live broadcasts with live timing (this last one is great on the PC -- put a window in a corner with the video, and watch the gaps and lap times develop on another window open to the live timing).

Last year wasn't too bad in terms of processional racing. But if you have an allergy to the Spanish national anthem, you better mute the sound.

Even when the GP is not rife with battles, the Moto 2 and 3 always deliver. IMO it's worth it just for that. Last year Moto 2 was really good!

^^^^ What they said.

Not only can you watch the races when you want, all of the practice and qualifying sessions are available live, or on demand later. Heaven for a real junky.

Krop's article on Dorna's Youtube policies is generating a lot of talk on his site.

I still think it'll be the sponsors that'll beat Dorna into joining the 21st century. Is Monster happy to see all images of their riders being pulled? Red Bull sponsors the Rookies, bet they're pissed every time coverage gets censored.

That's just a couple of names of companies that have made their name in social media, owe their success to it, really.

EVERY sponsor loses under Carmelo's policy, none escape the pain.

Money talks. Money needs to start screaming at Carmelo until he gets with the program.

How can he think that a policy that excludes access to the very customers that the sponsors are paying to reach is a successful one?


They lament Rossi leaving, for the loss of market exposure. These policies are a much bigger problem.

Gee, since when did Rossi become a Spanish citizen?
