I just sent off a NastyGram to Speed/NascarTV.
I hope MotoGP goes to NBC like F1.

That would be nice! SPEED blows. But you'll still miss out on QP, which is now excellent to watch; even better than the racing sometimes. Plus all the other perks.

I ponied up for the MotoGP subscription back in 2006 when I was traveling for business. Never gave it up. Now with AppleTV to stream it from my iPad it is perfect on the big screen.
Once the current "Deal" is over with AT&T the cable will be gone along with Speed. I'll have high speed internet and be fine with that.

The Moto2 race had some punting as well. lots of bumping and sliding.

I've never watched it (Canada). I have bought the MotoGP prescription for the last 4 years.

I used to do that, but then realized they would actually have to care about bikes to make any difference!

Reason looked simple to me, he's carrying injuries so he wasn't moving as easilly, he didn't hang off far enough that lap, as a result a small bump in the track grounds the bike, levers both wheels off the ground and whoosh, hello kitty litter.

Nothing wrong with the tires or track, just pushing to 99% when the rider was only 97%.
