Surely, if there's no TV coverage, then there can be no AMA spoilers, right? Nothing to spoil...

CRAP!

But there is some terrific alternative SpeedTV programming on Sunday pm.

4:00 to 4:30 Dumbest Stuff on Wheels (a MUST see for the braindead)

9:00 to 11:00 Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant (remember this in the SPEED channel.)


So you see they just HAD to scrap any silly AMA motorcycle racing to broadcast those very important events . WTF!!

Earlier today reigning MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo, who also missed the German round through injury, confirmed that he will return this weekend.

These guys are made of different stuff than mere mortals.

Is this a prelude to bringing Moto 2 and 3 to Laguna Seca next year?
