Let me start this thread by saying I have not read the WSBK TV thread in its entirety so I'm a little clueless about how it's being aired. I know there's stipulations to viewing it, so maybe someone could clarify how to watch the race?

Now, time to go racing :80500

So, this year of WSBK starts with knowing that the reigning champ, Max Biaggi, has retired. So that means there will be a new champion at the end of the year no matter what!!

So, lets talk some racing :biatch

Need the poll, so I can check-a Mr. Checa. He seems to be finding the 1199 Panigale agreeable.

Really looking forward to seeing how the 1199 will perform.

Should be a great season, there are a lot of equally competitive bikes this year. from what I've seen there doesn't appear to be one with a big advantage over the others.

Checa and the new duc are obviously a bit of a question mark. It's interesting he's so fast on it, wasn't long ago he was bitching he didnt want to ride it and deal with developing a new platform.

For those of you trying to set up your DirecTV DVR, it's no longer listed as World Superbike at 8:00 on Saturday. It's now motorcycle racing at 7:30. It goes until around midnight.

This is a bunch of crap :explosive

You have to have DirectTV's premier package to get Bein sports tv! What a joke. Now I'm going to have to try and stream it online. I'm so sick of the lack of respect that motorcycle racing gets in the US....

Don't know. Don't know much about the network. I have it on Dish, but have never watched it.

You only need to add the sports package to your current package. It's $10/month. You can probably request a three month trial and cancel at the end of season.

[Butthead]He said package...[/Butthead]

Yes, the start is 7:30 PM EST, sorry for not clarifying in my post.


Don't know. Don't know much about the network. I have it on Dish, but have never watched it.
They show a lot of soccer. I was looking at their Facebook page. There was a comment from a soccer fan hating on motorcycle racing for taking time away from soccer. I can understand, since racing fans just got the boot. But if you're on Facebook or Twitter, I think everyone should take the time to thank them for the coverage.
