BTSport has officially announced that presenter Mel Sykes is no longer part of the MotoGP team.
Craig Doyle, presenter for ITV4's Isle of Man TT coverage and BTSport's MotoGP Tonight programme, will be more involved with the MotoGP team.
The following statement has been issued today, ahead of the weekend's race at Mugello.
"We regret to say that Mel Sykes will no longer be a part of the presenting team on MotoGP for BT Sport. BT Sport’s approach is to operate a team of presenters and experts who work across both live and magazine programmes.
"Mel has other broadcasting commitments which prevent her from being able to do this and as a result working across BT Sport MotoGP programming is no longer viable. We wish Mel all the best in the future.”
"Our team remain the same, we have a fantastic team of presenters and experts working across MotoGP, as the rugby season comes to an end, Craig Doyle will present more live MotoGP."
