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.

My provider, Wave Cable, doesn't offer CBS Sports Channel in HD (yet) so it was normal resolution. The picture quality was good or good enough. Was pleased with the coverage and screamin' Johnny Green is a step up from the SPEED announcers with the exception of Leigh Diffy who I prefer to Green. I really enjoyed the lack of animated promos for other programs that SPEED used to put on the screen during race coverage.

Its going to be fun watching Hayes claw back the points lost at Daytona. Enjoyed seeing Cardenas emerge as the primary contender. Hoping to see Eslick come to terms with the Jordan Suzuki. 2nd DSB race was very good.

I forgot to mention that the pre-race 1/2 show was pretty well done- so props for that.

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

Any one have links to videos?

I couldn't find any sites streaming the broadcast on Sat and I have been too busy to watch anything since.

TIA.

I love watching Hayes ride. That was a great race for him.

I was wondering if their agreement with CBS Sports would allow for an online archive of the races. So glad they are doing this. Great move by AMA Pro Racing and its FREE.

http://www.roadracingworld.com has been posting highlights, and full race videos from AMA. They're also putting up highlights packages from British Superbike series, and it's support races. Cool!
