Got up at 04:30 to watch the race live. No joy. Can't argue with snow, rain and sleet.

A side note: MotoGP and MotoAmerica + still don't have the bandwidth for live broadcasts. :frown2: Lots of buffering with MotoGp Q1 and Q2. Almost unwatchable. MotoAmerica+ was unwatchable live. Even the FS2 broadcast of MotoAmerica had tons of errors and pixilation. Unacceptable. We need to watch live feeds with zero errors and buffering. :frown2: Everyone that experienced what I did need to complain immediately if unacceptable customer service is to be eliminated. :frown2:

Race 1, another win for AB, 2nd for Rea, 6th for Reit, 10th for sykes. Still hoping for a better showing from BMW in race 2. At least reiterberger(sp?) finished in the top 10 finally.

And 28 was in front of 66 in both races!! That was interesting.

Let’s see if the one month break gives them a chance to get to matching power to the other boys!

Earlier today at Imola, oh, no new race engine according to the announcers:

Tom Sykes (BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team)*had a relatively quiet session in comparison to those around him, making plenty of progress through the session. The 2013 WorldSBK champion*is a double winner at the Imola circuitand looks primed for another strong showing, this time for the German manufacturer. Completing the session in third place, Sykes will be hoping to continue improving on Saturday. His teammate,*Markus Reiterberger, struggled again and was only 13th

Sucks about the engine. But they did some aero improvements that supposedly added about 8 kmph on the top end.

I just caught the last 4 laps. Anyone know why Sykes was out? Mechanical issues? Crash?


Something mechanical. He rode it into the pits from a strong 3rd.
