Read on to make sure you know how to catch the action Saturday at Freestone. And if you miss any of the races, or are unable to watch it in your area, we'll be uploading all the 450 and 250 motos from Freestone to our archive section early next week. (NOTE: 2nd motos can be viewed online everywhere except Australia and Latin America.)
Time: 2pm ET/11am PT
Watch on: FUEL TV, AlliSports.com
As always, the broadcast of 1st motos will start at 1pm local time relative to each track, which means that coverage of this weekend's race in Texas starts at 2pm ET/11am PT. Both Moto 1's (450, then 250) will be shown live on Fuel TV, and will also be live streamed - FREE of charge - on allisports.com.
In case you missed the Hangtown live stream, the player has been enhanced to include an alternate camera angle, DVR capabilities, replayable highlights, and a live twitter feed. Make sure that you have Microsoft Silverlight installed on your computer ahead of time, if you did not already install it last week. SIlverlight is a required browser plug-in in order to play the live stream. For more information on Silverlight, including a list of compatible browsers, click here.
While the Fuel TV broadcast will end at 4pm ET following the conclusion of the 250 Moto 1, the AlliSports.com live stream will continue running until about 4:45pm ET, covering the 2nd WMX moto of the day.
NOTE: You'll be able to watch the live stream from a mobile device or iPad, however it won't have the access to the Silverlight features, including the alt cam and the archived highlights.
