    Sick.


    Can't wait. I prefer the series to GP and am glad we can see it still.

    For once, agreed. Much better racing, vastly more varied bikes, far less clinical riding. I'll be buying a video pass fo sho.

    Good News

    But I had to laugh at this statement:

    . ....It seems unlikely that it will be set at the same level as the MotoGP.com video pass (€99.95 for the standard pass), given that the level of interest in WSBK is not the same as MotoGP. However , Dorna's past record on streaming video suggests that it will not be cheap.


    Ok, 99 Euros for 18 races of full coverage and unlimited access to race library back to 1992 (every race from 2002 on) and all the extras motogp.com has to offer for a whooping 5.5 Euros per race weekend. It is extremely cheap for what you get.

    R.I.P. #58 Marco Simoncelli (January 20, 1987 – October 23, 2011)

    If you youtube the Moscow round where Tom Sykes 10R blows up and oil and fire shoot out the sides, that was cool. Drops it and walked off without so much as a look back, like a boss.
    I hate SBK on SpeedTV, sucks ass.
    Very stoked to hear I can watch it commercial free on my own schedual like the GP series, very cool.

    Although I'm am a Sykes supporter I do have a little tribute to Leon Haslam, also signed by his daddy... The legend Ron Haslam. As well as a half of Leon Camiers fairing from the weekend he and Max Biagi finished 1,2... Also signed by both.

    So cool to see how nice the carbon and Titanium is. But what I find most amazing is how shit the paint work is. Truly awful. But hey it doesn't make you go faster.

    That was definitely boss-like. He looked pissed. Which is roughly the same face I made at the bike show after I realized I can never wear a Shark helmet with any degree of comfort, which renders any Guintoli rep I may procure to shelf duty.

    Good news/bad news is you can buy a video pass.

    Personally, I'm OK without Dorna because I watched the entire last WSBK season on Youtube for free. Mind you it was a day or two after the event, and often in French - but the broadcasts were largely commercial free and in HD. Awesome to watch.

    Now, we'll all have to pay as I'm sure Dorna will surely nuke any unauthorized broadcasts as they do with Motogp. First of all hoping the video pass is available in Canada and secondly it's reasonably priced.

    is that when he acted like a spoiled little brat and grenaded the engine on purpose?

    his crew chief should have tossed him a wrench and told him to put a new engine himself.
