Out of sigfht, out of mind. They could have been off the entire year and im not sure i would have missed them until you mentioned them. How in the hell do you expect fans to follow your series when you go 2 1/2 months between events. Fucking wack is an understatement.

Did anyone else watch? Good question L8. I dont think anybody did. Races were on yesterday on CBS Sports Network. Nobody has that ch. the irony being that this channel has provided the best coverage i have ever seen given to AMA. They have great pre-event build up, pit interviews, flashbacks, pit interviews of crew-chiefs during the race, split screen, and the racing itself has been good. BUT ...the schedule has been awful and nobody is watching.

The top guys in DSB could make waves in Moto2, if only they were Spanish eh? Josh Hayes is the most underrated rider not to be racing internationally.

I'm trying to watch, but I don't think I have CBS Sports. I'm watching the AMA Pro DVR, which is nice, but very delayed. The CBS coverage seems to be a major improvement over Speed, but the field is still somewhat depleted for budgetary reasons, and many solid riders are sidelined. Two doubles in a row for Hayes doesn't really bode well for the remainder of the season.





DSB no longer interests me. Good concept grafted onto the wrong class, and its costing AMA Pro dearly. The top 4 are incredibly talented riders, especially Beaubier and Gagne, but the races don't really mean anything b/c they are the best of the non-SBK talent. SBK doesn't exactly have factory investment so no telling what will become of their talents.





At this point, I almost prefer the original plan which would have retained FX (or similar), and used the DSB concept in Literbike for affordable privateer racing. FX would have been stacked with talent, and these young kids would have been competing to beat 600cc legends like Hayes, Zemke, both Haydens, BBoz, etc. The US would have been producing incredible talent. Perhaps the AMA would have gone off the SBK radar, but Moto2 and MotoGP would have been knocking.

Yea, not many folks have CBS Sports, I only have it because it came with my Time Warner sports package which I purchased to view Bein and WSBK.


Very true that there are severalDSB riders that would becompetitive in Moto2, those guys toward the front can get with it. Good to see Benny in the top 10 both days, I'm guessing he's a little down on power to the front runners?


Josh Hayes certainly could make noise in WSBK, it's too bad he never got offered anything decent in that series.

DMG is not at anything. The AMA and the manufacturers were corrupt and always up to something. DMG is just incompetent, and they are beaten relentlessly by the media companies and sponsors with whom they claim to be partnered.





DMG excluded the major AMA Pro events from the CBS Sports package b/c DMG hoped to sell them for extra cash. Selling one off events to network TV or separate cable channels often requires advertising promises from major sponsors. The manufacturers once filled this role, but now DMG depend on companies like GEICO, National Guard, Go Pro, etc. to make up the difference. GEICO is by far the most powerful sponsor in the paddock, but look at the choke job in DSB by Westby and Team Hammer.





I bet GEICO, who are accustomed to championship-winning seasons with riders like Eslick and Cardenas, are pressuring DMG to change the balance of performance to improve Westby's CBR. No dice. GEICO pulled the plug on any possible TV deals, and now RRW (Team Hammer) are talking trash about DMG.





Anything less would be a surprising display of competence from the people in the paddock.
