What channel in the USA is covering Dakar?

I know it was NBCSports last year, but do we know if it's still them this year?

How was the NBCS coverage last year? Any good? I've got NBC this year, but if it's as awful as the Fox coverage of MotoGP or CBS coverage of AMA road racing I might not even bother and just steal it from the internet again.

Wasn't bad, but only 30 minute update shows. But i'll take it again. Just hoping they balance coverage. Robby Gordon is a dick and gets way too much facetime to wave excuses...

This is what it will be like: Title sequence full of crashes, get-offs and other "XTREME!!!!!" images, recap of what has happened in the rally so far (too long and repetitive - they must have shown R. Gordon's Hummer flip over every show after it happened), commercial break, day's stage on the bikes (highlights, interviews, standings for stage/overall), commercial break, day's stage on the cars (highlights, interviews, standings for stage/overall), commercial break, mixed bag - might be coverage of trucks or a segment on just about anything to with the rally or the region.

Also, much like the MotoGP coverage when the race is at a U.S. round, we get American announcers who don't really know much about the Dakar Rally or even off-road racing in general. The low point was the year they had A FUCKING GOLF ANNOUNCER! It's been a little better than that recently but you'll get better shows and announcers from Eurosport and SBS Australia.

So over 200 views and yet not a single person knows who is covering the Dakar in the US?

I believe NBC sports cable channel will have 1/2 hour recaps every night .

It sucks I know , there will be links for TV stations viewable on the web in the racing forum . Last year France4 and Eurosport had coverage unless there was a good snooker game to broadcast

Ah, Dude...I posted it was NBC last year and asked if anyone knew who it was this year...as so far, direct answers are lacking. Dude.

I didn't understand that second remark to be an answer...but the first one I plain missed...so, I have my spork. If someone has some crow, I'll chow down.

And with so many dudes being tossed around, I would like to take a moment to pay homage to the one true dude...
