Actually, turn 3 collects more bodies than the corkscrew.

The idea of DP and JLo riding this weekend makes me nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I'm more concerned that they don't reinjure themselves. It's all Marquez's fault.

MotoGP needs CC- a professional with a great sense of humor.

Could you imagine JLo or DP posting anything like this?

There will be cameras at the track. How is this not being broadcast? Nonsense.

Having never watched MotoGp in any format other than downloaded straight to my hard drive I have to ask......is it ruined by an endless string of commercials like AMA when it is broadcast?

Yes.

To be clear: The AMA races will not be televised. The MotoGP race will be on Speed, (semi) live, as usual.

No it is awesome. They time the commercials so you miss all the best passes and then the idiot US commentator talks about tons of useless drivel after they cut back to the racing so you miss another minute or so of action. Generally they will also have this awesome pointless 15 minutes at the beginning where they talk about stuff like the color of Horhe Lorentho's underwear while completely ignoring the podium stuff and interviews at the end of the race which are a complete waste of time anyhow. I think that they have it down to a science now so that they only show 20 minutes of the actual race. It gets better every race!

I think of all the people that waste all that cash for the MotoGP package to see the bikes actually race and just laugh. I am hoping next year they get rid of the Brit commentators and bring back Ralph "I'm a clueless D-Bag" Shaheen and Scott "when I get excited you can't understand a single thing I say" Russell. That and at least three Progressive "Flo" commercials every break. Heaven!!!

Part of the problem with AMA viewing for me is waiting to see the race. The announcers BS too much. I was at the gym the other day and flipped on the Tv while I was torturing myself on the elliptical. I was lucky, or so I thought, to catch AMA SBK "in action". I worked out for 35 minutes and not one lap was turned. I was amazed.

I love it when the director cuts to a paddock shot just as the leader is about to change. Another one of my favorites, is when the camera guy is so obsessed with getting an extreme close up, that you miss the setup for his being passed. They understand that a race is not about the relationship between bikes. It's about focusing skills.


Don't you just love the shot of a guy putting numbers on a pit board? I can't see that one enough. Also love the shots of the backs of guys sitting in a booth or girlfriends avoiding eye contact with a camera. This is what it's all about.
It's cool when the camera dwells on a back marker in the gravel during the last 2 laps of a tight race.
Why save those great slo-mo shots for the end of the race? Play them during anxious moments of racing.

Don't forget the ever-important replay of the start while the race is happening, usually missing some epic passing.

Actually Jonathan Greene has been announcing with Scott Rusell on the CBS broadcasts of the AMA racing. He's a welcome relief to Ralph.

He described a particularly brave pass as "Well I guess you just load 'em up in a wheelbarrow and go for it."

I think you were watching the pre-race show which is a separate program.

And, glad you squeezed in that part about your workout. I love narcissists.
