The 2018 MotoGP season is underway, and we have the 2018 MotoGP television schedule on BeIN for you.As always, the times are subject to change and preemption, so do not set your DVR early in the year and forget about it. We will do our best to reflect any schedule changes.
However, not all 19 rounds are broadcast live in the United States on BeIN cable channel due to soccer conflicts. BeIN will show some races live on its auxiliary channels, with delayed coverage on the main BeIN channel.If you have cable access to BeIN, you can watch the other BeIN channels at BeIN Sports Connect USA on a web browser. You will need to have the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in installed, as well as having your cable sign-in username and password ready.All times shown are Eastern Time in the United States.In addition to watching the MotoGP races on BeIN Sports, you can also get a MotoGP VideoPass at MotoGP.com. The MotoGP VideoPass runs €140, and we think it’s worth it.In addition to streaming the races in all three Grand Prix classes live, as well as on-demand later, the MotoGP VideoPass also gives you live coverage of all the practice and qualifying sessions, plus the post-qualifying and post-race press conferences and plenty of other original content—it’s a must for fans of MotoGP. The live streams and replays are quite reliable, and of 1080p HD quality.Strap yourself in for another exciting year featuring reigning MotoGP Champion Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda), as well as past MotoGP Champions Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team).

KTM RC 390 and Gordon McCall of Quail Motorcycle Gathering
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the new KTM RC 390. The entry-level KTM has always been an impressive motorcycle that has sold extremely well, however the factory has now taken the bike to another level, with top-spec features that are typically found on flagship machines. Clearly KTM has realized that even smaller engined machines should have high spec suspension, brakes and electronics packages. Nic tells us how well the new RC 390 is equipped, and what he thought of riding the smaller displacement rocket.
In the second segment I chat with automotive and motorcycle industry icon, Gordon McCall. Gordon is the Director of Motorsports at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California.
This weekend of Saturday May 14th sees the annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering re-start after its Covid-forced hiatus, and having attended every one of the previous Motorcycle Gatherings, personally I’m very happy that the event is back on the schedule. Gordon chats about the event and a little of what’s happening this year. It’s a great event and if you feel like a trip to the gorgeous Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, you’ll get to meet Gordon, Roland Sands, and of course a large number of stunning motorcycles too.
From all of us at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
