What to watch on Motorsport.tv this weekend

As we reach the peak of the summer, Motorsport.tv has not one but two bouts of live motorcycle racing for your viewing pleasure this weekend.

The Red Bull Moto GP Rookies Cup moves on to the Red Bull Ring in Austria. Despite a non-finish in the second race in Brno, championship leader Can Oncu’s margin at the top of the standings was extended by three points to 17 thanks to his fourth victory of the season in race one.

Spaniard Aleix Viu could lament not being able to capitalise on Oncu’s non-score, with only five races remaining to close the gap to his championship rival. Could he make an indent this weekend at a circuit where he won last year?

The action is live on Saturday at 14:35 GMT and Sunday at 13:25 GMT in all Motorsport.tv territories.

And after a visit to Belgium last weekend, the FIM MXGP World Championship heads down to Switzerland for the series’ second visit to Frauenfeld, the setting for round 15 of the season.

As Antonio Cairoli closes in on his ninth world motocross title, the Italian will be in a confident mood having swept to the round victory 12 months ago. With only six events remaining, can anybody catch him?

Find out by tuning in to Motorsport.tv in the UK, France, Europe on Sunday from 11:00 GMT with MX2 action too.
