BT Sport team break cover

After months of speculation, BT Sport has finally announced the team that will head their 2014 MotoGP coverage. The team will be led by one of the most famous commentary teams in biking history, with former Eurosport commentator Julian Ryder joined by British Champion Keith Huewen.

 Like most here I wonder what Ms Sykes did to get job. If they just wanted some totty Pollyanna Woodward is a much better choice. Ok she doesn't have a bike licence either but she's up for a challenge (watch her bungee jump) is a great presenter and much better looking than Mel.  Ryder needs to party attention this year.  His trips down memory lane are fine except he doesn't watch what's going on trackside. He waffled on when some big crashes happened then ten minutes later wondered where that rider had disappeared to.  Also he and Moody at the least race kept talking about how Lorenzo couldn't get away from the pack when it was obvious he wasn't trying to get away he was trying to bunch them up.

Toseland comes across as very dull. Prob a really nice bloke so sorry mate. 

Going to miss wee Azi. Another good presenter.  Oh and she and Lorenzo deffo have a thing for each other

Mel Sykes is a really good presenter, nothing to object to there. Iwan great runner, not sure he's much of a presenter even or his Motogp credentials. Ryder & Huewen are both spot on. Toseland and Hodgson are a bit of a dissapointment would have loved BT to have got JB, he's a character, knows more than anyone and great for a one liner. Missed opportunity

Melanie Sykes

racingfan99 say's "Mel Sykes is a really good presenter"? Well I suppose she must be as I heard Sky Box office are trying to poach her to present Fight Night as apparently she has got a lot of experience in this field! Ha Ha!

How about a 'poll'  ..................... Are you going to subscribe to BTSport  .... yes or no.#

Might give some indication as to how successful the BT foray into to the world of MotoGP might be.

It's wall to wall football in the main - can't see the footy boys being that interested.

Ms Sykes has a 'great rack'? Get real lads. That'll be the prison food and a small room going to your heads i reckon  ;)

'Saturn'..................I have due to footy and MotoGp. Still kinda pi-sed off that it's no longer on the beeb as i hate ADVERTS. I think the Beeb were doing an excellent job (generally) and being 'free to view' could only help the sport. Now it'll continue to be in the Dark Ages.

Oh well.

 I think thatll be the general trend - people get miffed (myself included) and say they won't pay but when push comes to shove they 'give-in' at the last ditch.    Happened before when professional boxing went PPV - big outcry of can't pay won't pay - at the end of the day - they paid.    If people will pay good money to watch WWE's Royal Rumble - then there's no hope for the human race.
