It does suck, but in one way i understand Dorna. The question is, are there tv channels in sweden for example that is willing to pay for the rights? I doubt it, which means huge parts of europe will be without motogp...

Hopefully they'll see the errors of their ways and revert back to eurosport or atleast rehire the current commentators...

Oh well.. I guess i'll have to download all the races..

Dovi cries about Toselands riding:

Finishing seventh at Phillip Island, Andrea Dovizioso had a hard time with two of the most aggresive riders in MotoGP during the 27 lap race. Old sparring partner Jorge Lorenzo and new kid on the block James Toseland were trading blows with the JiR Team Scot rider, with some of their moves deemed to be dangerous by Dovizioso.
Andrea Dovizioso - Seventh

`I feel I made a tremendous race. If I had not had to recover from last after being pushed off the track at the start, we could have had a podium. At the start I kept on the left for the first turn, Lorenzo was almost alongside me and then he moved outside. This resulted in me finishing on the grass. From here I started a great comeback, even if in those first laps I could not push 100%, but instead I followed Valentino Rossi who also had the pace to gain positions. With Lorenzo we could have moved towards third position, but Toseland was too aggressive and a little dangerous while fighting for the lead of the group. The last ten laps the tyres were finished and I was not able to push anymore. At one of the corners, I had to go wide to avoid Toseland, who I was lining up to overtake, but because of this Nakano made it past us both. I am sorry to have lost the fourth place because it was a reality today.?

:boohoo:

Oh, sorry... I've made a dreadful mistake regarding the month (I feel tired and I've got a cold, so I guess it's understandable). University admission is in July.

*facepalm at myself*

Maybe I'll have enough money to go there. Plus a driver's license around that time.

The main admission is in July here too, but there so many things to do in September and you have to go through the admission process again... <_<
And yeah sometimes it's on a weekend...

I think I'll already start saving money because F1 + MotoGP + starting uni may be a bit too much...

Oh well.. My fears came true. Dorna said that they wanted MotoGP to be available for everyone and then they sell it to a company that puts it on a channel that you have to pay for in Scandinavia.. Nice move..
