It was awesome last night. They covered all of the races without commercial interruptions. Even the 19 minute 450 main. Why can't they just leave it like that for next year.

Anyone else think Roczen is the luckiest kid in racing right now....dumb mistake to pull off in the heat.

I think Speed is going in the way of ESPN, mostly stick and ball sports. If this is the case, I don't know who will be the purveyor of the NASCAR hype. Whatever the case, I don't think the nationals are in FOXSports' future. I hope I'm wrong.

If you think SX is bad, try to be a fan of pro cycling.


SHEEEEET. They take an epic, 5 or 6 hour road race that is maybe 110 years old and cut it down to the last hour or half hour. Its better than nothing, I suppose.


An aside, If I may:

Can anybody prove my assertion that there is more passing and racing in a single night of SX than you would see in a whole season of F1?

F1 has actually gotten better the last 2 years or so with the new tire rules and no fueling. But that said, yes SX is way livelier {is that a word?} than most F1 races.
That is 1 reason why SX, a even more so MX, is my all time favorite motorsport, to watch and to participate in.It has more variables than any other motorsport IMHO. Other racers, multiple brands of machines-all competitive, banking, off camber, 90* 180* turns and you already have more variables than most pavement sports but then add whoops, jumps, mixed dirt surfaces IE sand, mud, clay and hard pack all on any given track. Finally when I hear Nascar complain about how "different" a track changes over a couple hour race because of "temperature" changes....yeah, try 12" deep ruts developing on the face and landing of 75' triple jumps....best racing there is anywhere is on a dirtbike. Hell, best SPORT anywhere is dirtbike racing...I can not stand stick and ball sports by comparison...those are not sports, those are "games".

You're right Fox Sports 1 & 2 are going to be that way.

To interject... beIN sport has great FIM MX grand prix coverage.
First races are highlighted, but they have full coverage of both MX1 & 2 second races.

We don't have that channel in our package yet. It is on our guide but it is still blacked out. They have some other enduro races I have seen on the guide. Stupid me clicks on it every time only to go black screen...yes I sit there for a moment hoping it comes on.
