    I bought the MotoGP video pass this year, and I love it. I especially love being able to watch complete race coverage on demand. There's only one problem: to get to the race video, you have to get through a couple of pages splashed with race results.

    Anyone have a strategy for dealing with this?

    Make sure you watch the races in the right order though (if you're interested in Moto2 and 3, and can't catch the live broadcast), because they don't seem to be able to keep their goddamn mouths shut during the motogp race about what's happened earlier during the day...

    :nod I have mainly fallen into watching Moto3 with MotoGP-- missing Moto2. Watched the MotoGP race on Saturday (recorded the broadcast) and I know who won Moto3.

    Fuckers. :bluduh

    I'm sure it will still be a cracking race to watch, they all have been this year.

    the commentators should get substantial electric shocks any time they start to mention what happened in earlier races.. :lol3

    Yeah, Moto3 is the action this year, lots of very talented, brave and sometimes crazy riders guarantee it's never boring!

    lol. They used to put some effort into not sharing the results but don't seem to care any more. I watch things in order anyway, after the races are over.

    It's been the last two races, and even in the Assen GP broadcast, someone started to mention Moto2 results and then caught himself. I think I know why they violated the usual radio silence, but it's still a bit annoying. I'm hoping they can get back to behaving for the next race. At least this weekend's Moto3 race was full of surprises even knowing the winner before it started playing.

    I have been in the habit of watching the GP first, as I usually don't get to it until Sunday at the earliest, and every so often someone posts something on Facebook about the weekend's results. That tends to be less of an issue with the support classes...Motorcycle Superstore and Revit aren't pushing their brand based on Moto2 and Moto3 results.

    Yeah, I now watch the 3 races in order, even though I am using the no-spoiler link.

    I also read several racing websites (here, crash.net, Motomatters, Soup and a few more) and have to remember to avoid them all on race day until after I have seen the actual races. A couple times I have forgotten and...DOH!

    I've watched with only the ambient sound running.
    Makes it so you have to pay attention.
