Classes

I am finding MCN getting lazy with this site, which is a shame as it is generally informative. How many articles in the past 6 months about no more 125s and the start of Moto 3, yet they don't even check their own articles! Amateurs!

Excellent news, personally I'd prefer that they got shot of Ryder, bit of a patronising toad and brought Randy in. There is no way on this Earth can I watch the BBC coverage, that 'Resident Irritant' from Oz would have me reaching for the 'off' button immediately, in fact I did it less than 24 hours ago when the Beeb did a season review. He makes Murray Walker's F1 commentaries seem 'flat' and informative.

The BBC is a load of bull, they p#ss around with MGP on the red button and this is meant to be a good service?  Give live MGP back to Eurosport!

Just for clarification, the Moto3 class doesn't start until 2012 as we've stated  numerous times since we broke the story earlier this year.

Thanks Matt

another vote here

for dropping the 'Alan Partridge' of the motor racing world. Toby Moody is highly irritating and usually just gets in the way of Julian Ryder saying something of interest. Drop Moody, replace him with Witham, and bring back Mamola

wholly agree re Moody

Moody is biased. Endless refernces to Nicky.    "Great start from Hayden in 10th" (from 11th) !!? Great to see Nicky back again... one podium in year  etc etc.

Endless references to the pressure that Dani P is under; OH!  He will be with Repsol for SEVEN years. He weighs less than a dog or two bags of cement.  Never mentions that lighter riders have to compensate for lack of weight in certain circumstances.

Only better than Cox;   agree with Supermario re team AND keep Spalders

Oh whoopeeee, more of the obnoxiously arrogant Julian Ryder... Toby Moody is fun but he too is starting to believe his own hype. Unless someone at Eurosport reins these 2 in a bit, the commentary will be forgotten whilst they endlessly bang on about fookin' Twitter for hours on end! They used to be the best but their egos have taken over.

Get Whitham on board!

commentary teams

sounds like both Eurosport and the BBC have 'marmite' commentary teams.  i'm no fan of coxster, but i wonder if Auntie would get better feedback if they changed the lead commentator ....

i've written on here many times to say that Eurosport, as a dedicated sports channel, should be doing a better job than the BBC!  in defence of the Beeb, they are showing all 125, Moto 2 and MotoGP races live for what is perceived by the general population as a minority interest sport.  F1 gets a bigger budget ( it was described to me as being 'in a different league' compared to MotoGP by an insider) simply because more people watch it.  on a good day, the BBC MotoGP race audience is about the same as an F1 qualifying session, around 1m (up to 3m for the British MotoGP).  F1 can get race day audiences up to 9m, so it's a no-brainer for the BBC to budget their coverage based on audience size.

jamesg75 - when did the BBC commit to showing MotoGP on BBC1?  in any case, the Beeb can do themselves a big favour next year if the whole series is to be broadcast in HD, they can show it all on the BBC HD channel.
