Ramon Forcada recently did a long interview with Dennis Noyes for Spanish media. MotoMatters has an English transcript of the interview broken into three parts, two of which have been posted so far. As expected, there are some great insights from Forcada about life in the GP garages.


Part 1: Using just two engines for most of the 2020 season


Part 2: Working with the 2019 Yamaha M1 and some history of engines in GP.


I'll add Part 3 when it is posted.

Yet another reason to buy the MotoGP (and WSBK) video pass in the future. The NBCSN cable network will shut down at the of 2021.

Motosport.com: American sports cable channel NBCSN, which airs many of the nation’s top racing series including NASCAR and IndyCar, is to be closed down at the end of 2021.


Quote:
Parent company NBC Universal confirmed to staff in a memo on Friday afternoon that much of its programming will be migrated to sister channel USA Network.

NBC holds the U.S. broadcast rights to half of the NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series events, which it shares with Fox, as well as fulltime coverage of the NTT IndyCar Series, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCars, NHRA and Moto America. It also broadcasts national coverage of MotoGP events and the Dakar Rally.
AFT races are also shown on NBCSN as are some NHL games. I saw on Twitter that MotoAmerica's highlight program is moving to FOX Sports.
