If you’re an MX fan, real MX — 2-minute laps, turns that not 180-degrees, off-cambers, uphills, downhills, simple things like that — you owe it to yourself to check out the freecaster.tv live coverage of the MX GPs. It’s really teriffic — great technical quality, nice user interface, and solid overall experience. SPEED TV, are you watching???

Oh, they have archives too, if you can’t catch the race live. But watching it live is very good.

b8fdeb69-fcc2-4012-9b0a-1d0e0f25ec2cI saw this announcement FIM Motocross and Supermoto Live Online in ’09 on RacerXIll.com today. I haven’t really kept up with the World GP scene and so wasn’t aware that freecaster.tv already have video highlights of all the GPs on online. According to the release:

The FIM Motocross World Championship promoter Youthstream and the online broadcaster Freecaster.tv have reached an important agreement to broadcast the series for free live and delayed on www.freecaster.tv from 2009.

There’s no press release on either the FIM or Youthstream web sites so I don’t know where it came from, but RacerX is a pretty reliable source.

There are a lot of changes in store for American MX in 2009 and beyond. It would be cool if a similar webcast arrangement was one of them.
