MOTOGP, WSBK, MotoAmerica and BSB 16.

I started the MotoAmerica thread that was my bad. It makes more sense to have a thread that covers the 4 mayor serious. MotoGP, WSBK, and MotoAmerica, all air on bein SportS network, and the British Super Bike, which is as good if not even better than the WSBK. That can be watched a couple of days later on Youtube. Two Americans are racing in the BSB John Hopkins and James Rispoli.

So far all the series have delivered some incredible racing. I always record all the MotoGP categories but some times I don't get around to watching the Moto3 races. Wow I'm glad I did watched the last race from Jerez. It will go down as one of the best races ever in MotoGP, South African Brad Binder went from 35th to 1st in Spain to take his first 1st place MotoGP ever race. It was breath taking, he didn't get there by passing 15 riders at the start but instead by basically passing one by one. And the battle for 2nd and 3er on the last lap was also incredible.

I'm also half way through watching last years Mopar CSBK Canadian Superbike Championship, 7 races pretty good quality coverage.The fist race practically only cover the two riders fighting for the lead but still some real good racing, they did a better job cover the remaining races.

The British Supersport 2016. Round 1. Silverstone was also a great race. On lap five you can see one of the strangest tire failures, it appears as if James Westmoreland cut Andrew Irwin real tire with his front tire, it looks like tire to tire rub unless it was with his disc brake but front the footage it looks like it was a tire rub. Luckily neither of them went down, obviously Andrew retired. Minute 11 is the incident.

Yeah, and that was his first win in motogp. That probably makes it a 1st ever. They talk about Marc and Valentino coming from behind but they didn't win their first race from the back.

Thanks for the post! I've been streaming Motogp for 3 years. Had WSBK for season.

Watched BSR a few years ago. The year Lowe's beat S. Byrnes. I knew who Shane Byrnes was from Motogp but didn't know who "Shakey" was until they spelled his name out. Can't believe "No Vowel" Smrz is still racing!

British Superbikes 2016. Round 2. Oulton Park. Race 1. What a race a nail biter. Can't believe how fast they push on those wet conditions. Keep in mind that British Superbikes has limited the use of electronics.
