Will Speedvision be showing it too? And when, if so? Probably just be a repeat of the taped ESPN2 coverage, anyway.

I think he meant for future rounds of the AMA series. ESPN just gets the Daytona round. Speedvision (usually along with Fox Sports) does the rest of the series (except for Loudon maybe, which was on TNN in recent years).

I was at the race and the pace car decision was absurd IMO. Granted, I'm no road race expert, but it looked like a yellow flag on the dogleg would have been enough. By the time they saw the car, Yates, Hacking and company were coming off turn two and were on it in a second. I think the Pontiac people called it out so the crowd could see it labor around the track. Actually, I think they called it out because Mladin had pulled a five second gap four laps into the race after Hayden had problems and they wanted to tighten the field. Keep that type of junk in NASCAR where it belongs.

Saw him crash. He lost the front coming out of the infield and back onto the main track. Slid off the track and was up immediately trying to get the bike restarted. Bike obviously too damaged to continue racing, although it didn't look bad from the stands. Mladin had been pulling about 1/2 second on Duhamel per lap before that crash. Would have loved to see a dogfight like two years ago, but wasn't going to happen that day.

Just curious, but you guys in the States, who do you get commentating the World Superbikes? Here in Australia we get Leigh Diffey (the non-bikes knowing, shouter - highly annoying) and Steve Parrish (might know bikes, but he doesn't really come across well). You get them, or someone else?

So do you mean that speedvision will not be showing this race? I don't get espn2 so missed my favourite race of the year. I emailed speedvision asking when they were going to broadcast it, but no reply yet. Does anyone else know if and when SV will broadcast this race?

There for a while we had these two brits that well always seemed to disagree and get into arguments all the time. One was a bit of a know it all while the other guy seemed nice but it was quite a show just listenting to them.



Sometimes they got on my nerves as they were always talking about foggy. Foggy this foggy that. Don't get me wrong he was the man but if Foggy won it was another brilliant victory but if somone else won it was just dumb luck.

Here are some links to video clips:

Roberts/Yates/Hacking Pace Car Crash (12MB):
http://149.123.110.32/misc/videos/da...01_crash_1.avi

and the horrendous incident with Russell (22MB):
http://149.123.110.32/misc/videos/da...01_crash_2.avi

Man, Russell looked bad.
and whoever sent that Pace Car (and I use the term loosely regarding the POS Aztek) out needs to retire!
