Cool Speed won't show WSBK in '13

According to SuperBike Planet Speed has no plans of show World Superbike and only 3 AMA/DMG races. Not even sure about MotoGP other than US rounds.

I emailed them yesterday and so should you!!

Not sure what fool(s) is running that place but they managed to lose their Formula 1 contract too.

Such a shame - it was ALWAYS better when it is was "Speedvision" anyway. Just gonna have to watch it on Youtube I guess.

Buhu... Just like in the rest of the crappy world then... I get ten friggin re-runs of whatever his name is wrecking an F1, which i couldn't care less about... And then a one minute "re-cap" of the WSBK... And a two minute re-cap of MotoGP...

They won't care, Speed is going away and is getting rebranded as Fox Sports soon and most of the stuff they show either get moved to Fox Sports 2 or (more likely) disappear completely. No great loss when half the programming is pure crap like Pass Time and Dumbest Stuff on Wheels.

True, but that makes it all the more painful. I get its corporate & its a country of RUBES that apparently love to see lowlifes yell at each other. Just leave me my racing! Dont make me go postal......

That's funny, really. I make jokes about hillbillies all the time, my S.O. is one (was). She hates nastycar.

Your very right.
I'd also like to see Fox everything go away as well.

I am actually pretty happy about this as I torrent all the WBSK races, and now there won't be any stupid SPEED uploads intermixed with the others.

I am sorry for those of you who were relying on speed to watch the racing

This is a new one on me, but I like it.

Al Gore sold his cable tv network, Current TV, to Al Jazeera. If they have the rights to carry this in the US, it's where you'll end up watching it.
So hope your local cable company continues to carry Current TV in their lineup if you want to see SBK. (Time Warner dropped CurrentTV from their lineup on news of the sale.)

What about AMA? That was some of the most intense racing last season. We may just have to egg the speed channel building instead of torching it.

Wow, just watched race 1 & supersport on bein sports network. I just called directv and asked if I could have it free for a while to try it and they gave it to me for 3 months. At least 10 times better than speed (I really despise speed now). Why even have a speed channel then drop bike racing? Oh yeah, cuz they suck.

I didn't find much on speed related to motorcycle racing in the TV lineup, 3 events listed for the summer.. I posted "Feedback" very bottom of the speed page.. it can't hurt if we all do it! nothing to loose..

Race 2 was even better...felt really weird though, not having to fastforward through commercials...
