I hope it's not blacked out here in the Bay Area. I'd love to be able to watch it without having to deal with the traffic and the wacked out weather on the coast.

The press release states that ABC is showing the program on 7/30. You can watch it live on Speed.

It's not the speed that kills, it's the rate at which the speed diminishes...

Oh! My bad. I just glanced at the first paragraph and didn't go any further. :p

Unfortunately, the Speed Channel is on Comcast's (ptui) "Premiere Tier" so I, of the $50 Expanded Basic subscription suckers, can't get it.

Exclamation It's on a week after the race

My bad... I did not carefully read the article either. ABC's coverage is delayed by a week.



FWIW, I just received "The Doctor, The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid" preview edition.

It is awesome and if you're seriously into MotoGP you MUST see this before the 23rd. It chronicles Rossi, Edwards and Hayden in preparation for the race... way before they arrived at Laguna. They talk about the track, techniques, competition.

Just to hear them talk about each turn at Laguna as the on-board cameras go through them is worth the money.

The Speed channel coverage is the best, but now some of my tighter friends can see what they're missing by not having Speed channel. MotoGP has to be some of the best racing action on tube.

The weather was great last year at the track. Then again, maybe I've lived up north so long I don't recognize CA coastal weather as being bad.

So you feel chilly in the morning, warm up and shed the extra layers after lunch, then begin to get chilled again when the fog rolls in around dusk. Other people might think it to be quaint, but I still hate it even after 40+ years.
