Motocross is back! Are you ready to watch some racing on Saturday?
The Lucas OIl Pro Motocross Championship has a new television package this year, so read through this article to make sure you know where and when to catch the action this weekend.
Time: 4-6pm ET/1-3pm PT
Watch on: FUEL TV, AlliSports.com
1st motos will be televised live on FUEL TV again this year. Tune in starting at 4pm ET (1pm local time at Hangtown) for the coverage of the 450 Class, followed by the 250 Class.
For those without FUEL TV, both races will be streamed live on AlliSports.com. You can watch the live stream starting at 4:00pm ET. The live stream will run through the 1st motos in the 450 and 250 classes, and then - as an added bonus - will also feature the 2nd moto of WMX immediately after.
New this year, we have a brand-new player with an alternate camera angle and replayable highlights. We hope that motocross fans across the world enjoy the enhanced experience!
Now in order to run the new player, you will have to download a plug-in for your web browser called Microsoft Silverlight. We recommend downloading Microsoft Silverlight ahead of time to make sure you don't encounter any issues on Saturday. The following browsers currently support Silverlight:
- 32-bit Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9 for Windows (2003, XP SP2 or greater, Vista, and Windows 7)
- 64-bit Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 SP1
- Firefox 3.6+ for Windows (2003, XP SP2 or greater, Vista, and Windows 7) and Macintosh (Intel only)
- Safari 4+ for Macintosh (Intel only)
- Chrome 12+ for Windows (2003, XP SP2 or greater, Vista, and Windows 7)
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.
