Unhappy MotoGP Eurosport loses MotoGP

Dorna Sports has announced that the 2008 MotoGP World Championship will be the last to be broadcast by Eurosport.

"After many years of successful collaboration, MotoGP rights-holders Dorna Sports would like to announce that coverage of the MotoGP World Championships will no longer be available on Eurosport from the 2009 season," read a statement from Dorna.

"Dorna would like to thank Eurosport for a partnership which has been of mutual benefit for several years, having helped take MotoGP to new levels of popularity and coverage whilst also offering the pan-European broadcaster impressive viewing figures.

"The decision is part of Dorna's new strategy of working with national network broadcasters around Europe, always focusing first and foremost on free-to-air coverage to bring MotoGP to wider audiences.

"This means that in the UK, the BBC will enjoy exclusive coverage of MotoGP next year, whilst in Spain and Italy, where MotoGP enjoys long-term agreements with TVE and Mediaset respectively, negotiations are ongoing about extending coverage to more hours during the weekend.

"In Germany, a deal has been signed with a privately owned free-to-air channel, giving the commercial network exclusive coverage for three years until 2011. Meanwhile, negotiations are ongoing in France and other major European territories with various mainstream networks; further details will be announced shortly."

The British Eurosport commentary line-up of Toby Moody, Julian Ryder and former 500cc star Randy Mamola is considered one of the best in the business, while Eurosport's extensive live coverage often includes all three days at each grand prix.

The BBC will be broadcasting both F1 and MotoGP next season, with F1 certain to be given preference in the event of a clash.

-------------
ok so Dorna wants more $$$ and cuts loose most of Europe, thank you so very fucking much assholes.

already had a whinge about this with a few mates... hopefully the lads from eurosport end up covering motogp in some fashion, they're by far the best commentators i've heard covering the races

prejudices are what fools use for reason

Ugh. BOOOO. Figures this would happen right after I got totally sick and tired of the motogp.com coverage and resolved not to give those dickwads any more cash. BBC had better cough up jobs for the Eurosport guys -- they're well beyond any of the other commentators out there.

Just be glad some of you don't have to listen to the horrible commentary on Speed with the AMA. It is VERY bad.
