    There's going to be a mile race here in Stockton in September. I've never seen a mile in person, should be good. It's not an AMA race, but I'm hoping a bunch of the pros show. I'm planning on mounting a few remote cameras for some interesting angles. Probably see if someone will let me mount my VIO POV video camera on their bike too. :)

    obviously valentino rossi is a hero, and the race from spain today was awesome. that being said, i had goosebumps for the entire springfield mile, just as i did every time i was there, either as a racer or a fan. it gives you an indication of how special it is when depain comes out just for that race. thanks to speed for getting it on tv again.

    i agree, but i think it is more appropriate to say cool to see so many dirt trackers roadracing. i remember larry pegram at the amateur nationals in binghamton, ny back in like 85? he had the fastest 125 i had ever seen.

    I thought the coverage was excellent as well.....the camera angles were great....the overhead, and how did they get the moving shots on the backstretch...truck or something?....camera on a rail?

    Very cool stuff :up:

    Mav TV (if you get it) did the Springfield TT and will be doing Peoria and some other races as well.

    IIRC, the camera is motorized and on a wire flyway for the horse races at the fairground. That would also explain how come it kept getting passed by the bikes. :D

    Very cool, good coverage. BTW, Despain should be announcing for all the roadraces too.

    not sure, but i read somethng i thought was funny. a comment about getting nicky back out there. someone said, "ducati should build one for hayden so maybe he will finally have a chance at winning on a ducati".

    E-bay Sport 1000 with a modified frame.

    i think that is assuredly a money thing. when nicky was a kid his nickname was 'mr. dirt' because he wanted to be a dirt tracker, not a roadracer. back in 2002 (boy am i old) the hayden brothers swept the podium at the springfield tt. if i remember correctly they were all on different brands, just like today.
