Two Wheel Tuesday Toby & Julian Announce Duck Racing

A BRILLIANT promo put out by British Eurosport to promote the return of the MotoGP season.  As many of you may know, at the end of last season it was announced by DORNA that British Eurosport would not be offered a contract to continue it's coverage and that for the UK, it would be covered exclusively by "The Beeb"

This was a HUGE shocker to everyone as even "The Beeb" acknowledged that they wouldn't and couldn't offer the same level of coverage that British Eurosport had.  On top of that the triumvirate of Moody, Ryder and Mamola were recognized BY EVERYONE as THE BEST broadcast team in the business.  Even His Holiness Pope Valentino the 46th ordained a day of fasting and prayer that this team was being banished by DORNA.

Thankfully a public outcry from around the world has fixed most of this.  Toby and Julian will be back again, sadly sans Mamola, and they will not be at every race, but doing some of the long flyaway races for the studios in the UK.  Better this than nothing at all I say!

With that I give you this gem that was shown after GP Zero at Jerez this past Sunday, and in a conversation with Toby on Monday he said there are more of these come come, and from the description he gave me, they only get better!!
