US Superbike series bound for Britain
We could see the likes of Mat Mladin, Eric Bostrom and Anthony Gobert dicing on British turf thanks to a new deal signed by American Superbike bosses and TV giant Sky.
Sky have just clinched the deal to screen the 2002 series in the UK but there’s also the mouthwatering possibility that we could see a European round of the championship here, too.
Chris Bradley AMA vice president said: " It’s really great. We know many of our top Superbike athletes have a devoted overseas following, and now those race fans can enjoy a Superbike battle between Mat Mladin and Nicky Hayden from the comfort of their own living rooms," said Chris Bradley, AMA vice president.
"The U.S. Superbike Championship already has a very positive reaction from international buyers. The future of U.S. Superbike racing is strong and we look forward to expanding its popularity into the overseas markets."
