beIN Sports Holiday Refresh | MotoGP, WorldSBK & MotoAmerica Recaps
2016 World SBK Champion Jonathan Rea leads the grid

The slowest week within the motorcycle industry, along with many other industries, is between Christmas and the New Year. Many people take vacation that week, or they are off for the holidays.

beIN understands this, and will provide some extra holiday cheer for motorcycle racing fans December 26-29. beIN Sports will air four days of Pit Lane specials, which will look back at the 2016 motorcycle road racing season. Each night will cover a different series—MotoGP, World Superbike, MotoAmerica—and one night will be a “Best of” Pit Lane.
