    Angry Eurosport to lose MotoGP to BBC

    According to Crash.Net - Dorna (the Bernie Ecclestone of MotoGP), have announced that MotoGP will be on free to air channels throughout Europe from 2009.

    Therefore Eurosport (which have been with MotoGP since it's inception - 25yrs ago) will not be able to show 125/250 or MotoGP races next season at all. Instead it will be shown exclusively on BBC.

    Whilst I think it is good that it will have a potentially wider audience on the beeb, it will probably mean the loss of the following

    No more free practice or 125/250 quaily.
    No more extensive pre-race indepth stuff.
    No more Toby Moody, Julian Ryder and the legend that is Randy Mamola.

    You can also guarentee, any clashes between F1 and the bikes, will mean F1 wins.

    Read that yesterday. Think it's a shame. Bikes will always lose out to F1 when the two clash. Maybe they might show Motogp on BBC2 if that happens but I can't see them showing 125's, 250's as well as Motogp live like on Eurosport.
