All GP´s will be shown live on : www.mx-life.tv

New for this year is that saturday´s qualifications also will be shown live.:thumbsup:

Only minus : It´s not for free anymore :bonk:

About the KYB/Ohlins deal: From what I have heard, Rinaldi Yamaha and Ohlins had some problems dealing with each other. The Rinaldi crew didn´t want to listen to the Ohlins suspension technicians. (and maybe vice versa)

Maybe the deal with going to Ohlins in 2010 wasn´t so well planed. A totaly new bike and also starting to work with a new suspension crew wasn´t the optimal for either part.

But the Rinaldi team decided to insteed use stock KYB for 2011. And so far so good. The team won the italian internationell mx championship today. In the MX 1 class new Rinaldi yamaha rider, Steven Frossard wraped up the title ahead of his teammate David Philippaerts (3rd was Antonio Cairoli). In the MX 2 class Rinaldi Yamaha rider Gautier Paulin won the title. So I guess stock KYB is good enough ! :lol:

Can´t wait to see their new 2011 bikes !:ride:
