Moody, Ryder And Spalding Return To Eurosport MotoGP Coverage For 2010

MotoGP fans around the world will raise a cheer tonight, as their enjoyment of the 2010 MotoGP season has been assured. Toby Moody announced today on his Twitter account that the golden duo of MotoGP commentary - Moody and Julian Ryder - will be back at Eurosport for the coming season. Ryder and Moody are also to be joined once again by the man with an encyclopedic knowledge of MotoGP technology, writer and journalist Neil Spalding.

The trio will be providing live coverage of practice and qualifying for all classes for British Eurosport, live coverage of the 125 and Moto2 races, and delayed coverage of the MotoGP races, which are due to be broadcast live by the BBC. Though the British Eurosport coverage is due to be broadcast only in the UK, the trio have amassed a huge cult following around the globe, most of whom have found - usually illegal - ways of watching the races over the internet.

I've actually come to respect the BBC crew a bit more, but they're simply not as good as Toby, Julian and Neil. Wish they'd bring back Randy, though - his exuberance balanced their cerebral approach.

Here in the U.S., the Speed channel crew are simply unspeakably dreadful. Any two reasonably intelligent people off the street would do a better job with half a day to prepare.

BBC has better video packages as far as building up the riders as characters.

I can usually get a hold of the BBC coverage first so I'll watch that so I can find out who wins before I read a spoiler or something.

Then being a geek, I'll watch the Eurosport coverage. The Eurosport commentary is so good, it's worth listening to all by itself.

An afternoon searching on Google, and some basic, easily learned IT skills, and you can find out how to do this. That, however, would be illegal, and violate Dorna's copyright, something which MotoMatters.com could not condone, whatever the realities of the situation.

Mamola completes the package. Toby and Jules are the lovable and uber-knowledgeable chuckleheads. Spalding is the engineering professor. Mamola is the racer.

Without the misplaced exuberance of D'Artagnan, the story isn't the same.

Oh well, Brits never appreciated French literature anyway :-P

I'm so glad I know a way to get the Eurosport broadcast in the US. The BBC is terrible imo but watchable if it's the only one available. The US coverage I won't even talk about since I've tried to push that embarrassing attempt at coverage from my memory.
