I watched race 1 and the WSS race on BeinTV live. Then for race 2 it quit and said no race was scheduled. WTF?? Had to watch it on Youtube even though I already knew the results.

Agreed on the surprises. It's definitely gonna be an interesting year! Probably the last year if will be interesting before changing to EVO rules, where the term "fast" really isn't relative to the current definition of the word.

What are the Evo rules going to be?

I noticed they had an Evo class similar to CRT, what will be different next year?

Next year ALL bikes will be EVO, so none of the bikes we see running at the front will be there although some of the riders may be. It will be closer to Superstock than what we see currently, and while the bikes are still fast compared to what we can buy, they aren't what we're used to seeing. Mostly cost-cutting measures like a cap on brakes and suspension components, but also a smaller limit on the number of engines.

Lovely racing for sure! Cannot wait for the next one! Italians fighting each others.. Suzuki in the mix with MV Agusta WTF!! WSBK! best bikes and racing! Sad to see the Beemers gone. For the people that stopped watching.. please go back to your homework. Racing looks way better than last year.

I watched both, good races!
Spoiler!


FYI: I would not recommend subscribing to the WSBK video pass. Only streams in 720p and does not download video when you are paused, so you may end up watching a bit, then waiting for it to catch up and buffer :headshake Total shit and waste of $100. You can pay monthly, wish I would have subscribed for a month to try it out first.

Either add beIN to your cable, or download/stream the videos at www.666-sicco.info
