...they should shorten the TV broadcast. We should be seeing more racing than filler/ads.

We're 4 races in and we've seen ~40 minutes of racing during the 120 minutes of broadcast time. So 1/3 of time has been allotted to racing. Doesn't that seem backwards?

The races have all shown great racing and interesting results so far but the massive amount of downtime between each event really makes the show seem boring overall.

Yes, it's kinda backward. But if this were a regular event, we'd only now (midnight in the east) be getting to the first points-payimg race after two hours of qualifications. Doesn't that seem backward?

F1. MotoGP. MXGP. Screw the rest.

The downtime = track prep and rider recovery. Can't cut that. Would be great if they found some filler besides commercials. Or you can use the commercial time to do something else.

Not really since they were all a build up to the points paying position much like how all these races are a build up to the points paying position.

In a regular broadcast we would have had 38 minutes of racing in 90 minutes of broadcast time. So 42% of the time would've been on track racing.

I'm all about change and the racing has been more exciting but simply put, there has just been too much downtime.


If they showed the LCQs, we'd be pretty close to the amount of racing we'd get to see between each format. They have enough time during the traditional format to fix up the track between races, so I don't see how that should be an issue here.

You guys realize people (aka racers) need to rest and recoup, right?

You really think they asked the athletes 'how' they wanted the format to work?

Supercross is an event, not just a race. Relax and enjoy it?

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

I am, but if the motive was to get new viewers... I don't think showing more ads than racing is the answer.

Loved the format and chose not to watch the ads, worked out great.

The races didn't seem to have as much meaning and intensity to me as if there was only one main event. I had company over though, so maybe I just couldn't watch as closely as I'd have liked.
