i just watched fontana too and i am so upset with pro motorcycle racing in America. the commentators still suck and now they are even more annoying because of how fake they are and how many times they try to make the class seem competitive. to answer your question of where road racing in America has gone the only place i can think of is the toilet, maybe a landfill.

The AMA Racing Just plain sucks now and is gonna suck for a long time, unless the NASCRAP fools that run it now get bought out from someone who knows how to run a real motorcycle racing series, and yes that Dumb ass ama pro primetime show sucks so bad and the fools who comment on the race suck also they think that if they hired someone that has an accent it would make it better??? AMA DMG what ever they are calling it blows and is going down the shit hole ..

Its too bad Matt Mladin didnt get a real ride when Ben Spies did, he clearly out classes the rest of the ama field. Other than Hayden occassionaly there is no one else that can stay near him.
