To me, Moody and Rider ARE motorbike racing. Fantastic commentary duo. I hope this doesn’t affect their Eurosport MotoGP partnership, though I admit I’m not familiar with how Eurosport stand with MotGP at the moment.
If he can translate to BTCC with that same infectious enthusiasm as he has for MotoGP, that’ll be a great decision.
Toby said on his Twitter feed that it will be a lot of work, but he’ll be able to commentate both on MotoGP and BTCC. With Ben Edwards off the the Beeb, they would have had a hard time picking someone better than Moody for the commentary.
