gonna watch motogp online

Just bought a membership to motogp.com. Gonna watch the race here in about 58 minutes. Leguna Seca that is.
I'm just feeling around on motogp.com, but seems like a pretty cool site. All kinds of cool stuff you can run while the video is playing.

Gotta say SpeedTV's coverage was sub-par.

Besides the incessant commercial breaks, they seemed to spend more time showing the scenery and everybody's garage with mechanics gawking at the monitors rather than the action.

Hopefully the Indy coverage will be better.

WoW. Nothing at all compared to what I got to see. Zero commercials. Great replays and slow mo's. sidebar with riders place in the race, all kinds of cool stuff. It was pretty decent watching it on motogp's site. I also watched the warmup runs and got to see them try to run on a cold track and lots of talk about what tires to run. I liked the site, happy with the membership fee, cause now I can watch the rest of the up coming races, and the past ones too.

I think sub-par gives Speed way too much credit, that race coverage was awful. I think by the time the halfway point of the race rolled around, they had only showed eight laps or so of actual racing. And then, they missed the pass for the lead because they were showing some fans in the stands at turn 1 shouting about it.

More than usual, they took time from the actual race to go through what happened in prior years. They had a summary from the 1993 and 2005 races, while in the midst of skipping a ton of laps. It would be nice to have those features, but Speed needs to expand their timeslot to 90 minutes so they can show the whole (current) race. It's frustrating when I watch GP or WSBK, watch 3 laps, and then they go to commercial and skip 3 more laps. I'm leaning more and more towards just giving up on them and signing up for the official MotoGP feed.

I have no idea. The announcers were British accent.

They have so many videos on that site, it's almost a little overwhelming. It's really easy to get going down a thread of links and get lost for a while. I know next to nothing about MotoGP and the riders, but I learned quite a bit in just one day yesterday before the race started. I got to watch qualifying and warm up laps. And now I understand how and who the teams are.

I thought you'd be happy with Stoner winning. He owns Leguna Seca. But how did he pull Lorenzo on that straight? I saw Lorenzo accelerating hard enough to lift his front tire a little. Stoner passed him with ease. How'd he make that look so easy?
How'd you like the Hayden/Rossi finish? Wasn't that really cool?
