Looking Forward to Next Years MotoGP Already

I can’t think of a more deserving MotoGP championship winner than Marc Marquez who wrapped it up intelligently and in style at Valencia today. I think its safe to say it won’t be his last. Neither can I think of so many exciting changes coming next season including:
    Valentino Rossi without Jeremy Burgess
    Cal Crutchlow to Ducati who are reported to be investing heavily on radical changes
    Replacement of the CRTs by the production racers which should level the playing field.
    Scott Redding to Gresini on the Honda production racer
    Pol Espargaro joining Bradley Smith at Tech 3
    A record 19 rounds in the provisional 2014 calender

    However the dark cloud on the horizon is that BT Sport now has sole rights for MotoGP. I’ve watched MotoGP on Eurosport and the Beeb over the years - I will miss the coverage on both channels and I don’t like the general trend of subscription viewing. At least I have BT Broadband so it won’t cost me extra, but I always seem to have issues with BT and I have very little confidence in them. This is after all, the company who tried to install and bill me for two telephone lines and broadband accounts and sent me two modem routers when I moved into my new property mimicing their efforts at my previous home.
    Theres post race testing at Valencia for the next three days but the real action starts at the Sepang on 4-6 Feb 2014. I can’t wait and if I get any technical problems with BT I guarantee you’ll read about it here!
