    I tried watching the first installment . The coverage is less than infantile and the racing is a snooze fest . Two thumbs down .

    Nothing watching a race after you know the results. Maybe show it live, or the same week as the race? The coverage was not good.

    Indian had some guys in Switzlerland build them a race bike. So much for an “American sport”. This years racing is a snooze-fest.

    The announcers are less than good, but at least they don’t have some British accent sounding person that you can’t understand babbling into the microphone. Why in the world does the ama, Lucas oil series motocross have a British announcer for a series that is strictly held in the USA?? Moto gp is even worse. Can’t understand a word of it, with the British announcer talking a mile a minute and screaming the whole time.
