Moto GP 2014
Right then, i haven’t got BT Sports so im relying on all you good people who have to keep me updated 😀
All i have is the press: Crash.net, Moto GP.com, MCN etc
I heard that you can watch it all on a German broadcaster on the internet- is this true? Anyone know what this site is?
Anyway, i quite like Yamahas new paint 😉

FFS my local exchange isn’t…, so does that mean I can’t actually watch MotoGP on TV?Posted 4 years agoepicycloSubscriber
The Oz programme for the MotoGP always used to be good with some great commentators, best of whom was Barry Sheene.
I wonder if it’s possible to view that – or has it been taken over by likes of Sky?
For this season I’m hoping Crutchlow has made the right decision. I think he’s got the right mindset for the Ducati, just hope they live up to their end of the deal. Or will he end up developing it for 2 years, getting it just right, and then get spat out and replaced with a “better” rider.Posted 4 years ago
Going to be a fescinating season inspite of BT and the TV bobbins going on.
Will Marquez clear off or will Yamaha give Jorge a bike that can keep up. If they go at it like last year then injuries are likely to be a factor on where the title goes.
Cant see Valentino reclaiming old glory 🙁 Who knows about Pedrosa but if he doesnt win then it has to be bye bye works Honda. To many young chargers coming from Moto2.
Crutchlow will struggle on the Ducati, the rest of the Brits will do ok, Bradley to get on the podium sometime this season, the rest to do fine without setting the world on fire. Actually Redding may cause a few sparks 😆
I think Hayden will go well on the privateer Honda.
All the above may be utter rubbish we shall see.Posted 4 years ago

If Marquez wins it then providing Predrosa comes second or third then I can’t see him being ousted. Bringing in a young charger would be nice to see but I can’t see Honda wanting to bring in someone who’s going to mess with Marquez.
If it wasn’t for the publicity and the big sponsors then Valentino wouldn’t be on the Yam.
Pol got to be one to watch too.Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
It is going to be a great season, the way Jorge upped his game in the second half of last season and took the battle to Marquez was just incredible at times. I can’t see beyond them for the championship and the majority of the wins through the season though, unless Ducati surprises everyone and turns up with a great bike.
Watching it is going to be a problem, iirc the motogp.com season pass was stupid expensive.Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
don’t recall seeing it on RTL, but then I haven’t explicitly looked for it. RTL on German cable with Radio5Live via satellite for English audio, is how I watch F1.
I have tried that for some football, but just found the time lag between the pictures and the audio way too much.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
F1 isn’t too bad, other than knowing what’s about to happen at the first corner. Bonus is when RTL has an ad break (and some go on for ages), you don’t miss the action while taking your own pitstop and making a brew.
Footie you know if a strike on goal is successful or not before the guy crosses the ball in. Imagine that kinda spoils the surprise a bit.
Might check RTL. Think it’s still FTA on satellite (at least in SD).Posted 4 years ago

Do wonder how competitive they would be as they struggle to get ahead of some of the Open class bikes as it is.
They’d have more power in the open class.
Using the control electronics might force them to make the bike work instead of trying to mask it’s problems.

they’ll have a far better chance both
Redeveloping the bike.

Now this is all guesswork and conjecture, but i’d bet a pile of cash Honda have an ‘open class’ bike at their test track, running the stock ECU, with more fuel etc and have found it’s simply not better than their GP class machine.
I think Ducati would still end up as also rans… it’s a harsh terminology to use I admit, but even though it’s <1%… it’s still an also ran essentially.Posted 4 years ago5thElefantMember
If they do enter the open class, they’ll have a far better chance both this year and next year.
Generic ECU but more fuel and more engines.
Got to be worth a punt.Posted 4 years ago
More importantly they won’t get hit by the development freeze. I can’t see how they can do anything other than enter the open class. Running the same bike with chassis tweaks for the next 2 years isn’t really an option.
