BT Sport Introduce their MotoGP presenter line-up
BT Sport Introduce their MotoGP presenter and commentator line-up:
Melanie Sykes, Neil Hodgson, James Toseland, Julian Ryder, Keith Huewen, Matt Birt, Craig Doyle and Iwan Thomas
Sounds a reasonable line up to me. What do others think. Also the second screen extras sound like a great addition also. Can't wait to see it kick off..

The Practice sessions are Thu 4h 45m and Fri 4h in length. If space allows repeats of the sessions in full would be useful but it doesn't look like Day 1 will be rerun as it stands and I don't have access to listings beyond Fri 21st March (even if the channel listings are finalised at this stage).
Did Toby Moody choose not to join do we know? Or was he simply not asked? Him and Julian Ryder worked so well together that it seems crazy to not have them continue to do so.
It will seem very strange hearing Julian work with someone else. I hope they have a decent chemistry, as a fair number of times the commentary was more entertaining than the racing - which has become increasingly dull in the main class.
Moto gp is one of the reasons im joining bt , that and poor speed after being moved from o2 to sky bb .
I dont like the format that is studio and pit lane , its got to be pit lane all the time for the sites and sounds like it was on the BBC , i cant be bothered listening to people banging on about it thousands of miles away from where the action is like on WSBK
BSB commentary is now all mostly pit lane and far better for it , maybe its just me but i would rather see it all from track side than people talking about it in a room.
As for the presenter line up theres 3 or 4 in happy with but we will see how it goes.
If Melanie Sykes is in the studio i hope Gino D'Acampo is there to ,to give me an idea for lunch so i have something to do till we get back to track side
i have just read
zulu17 post http://londonbikers.com/articles/25709/bt-sport-motogp-coverage-uncovered
and this is what i mean .
The shows will be a mix of studio discussions with feed to and from the track. This is a far superior format to the previous trackside interview techniques where no-one could hear what was being said.
i want to hear chainsaws in Italy and scooters being revved to dead in Spain over commentators thats Moto gp
One plus I can take away from all this. NO Neil Spalding!!! Excellent.....there is nothing worse than someone just spewing numbers out during a commentary. I find it the dullest thing in the world, like listening to talking calculator.
It has just dawned on me for a second time that there isn't room on the BT Sport channels for a rerun of the Practice or Qualifying. There is only one shot to watch or record the sessions.
