New Motorcycle Series on Speed

New Motorcycle Series on Speed
-press release-


February 5, 2007
SPEED today announces its new motorcycle lifestyle series, Epic Ride. Hosted by seven-time Motocross and Supercross champion, Ricky Johnson, and produced by Pipeline Digital Media of popular network series, The Motocross Files, the show makes its premiere Feb. 20 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT.
Each episode, Johnson will be leading a diverse trio of unsuspecting celebrities or famous motorcycle personalities on a variety of two-wheel adventures throughout the United States and abroad. What’s an Epic Ride? How about a cruiser ride to Las Vegas or an off-road excursion through the Baja? Every episode is designed to take on a life of its own.

“Perhaps more than any other motorcycle program SPEED has yet commissioned, this one is most specifically designed to convey the sense of outright fun and freedom of the open road,” said Robert Ecker, SPEED Vice President of Programming. “The look, the feel, the entire concept and execution of the show is intended to inspire the audience to get up and get out there.”

“When viewers watch this show, I want them to say, ‘Man, I wish that was me,’” Pipeline’s Todd Huffman said. “This is an opportunity for the audience to witness all the different activities, breath-taking backdrops and amazing roadways or venues where enthusiasts can enjoy their motorcycles.”

The ‘Epic Riders’ will also be trying out some of the newest two-wheel creations from leading motorcycle manufacturers, while outfitted in the latest riding gear from industry leaders. According to Huffman, he wants the show to reveal a total experience.

“I also wanted a show that we could integrate a lot of the great motorcycles and products that some of our partners are offering,” Huffman continued. “This is definitely a show for the motorcycle enthusiast.”

In addition to Epic Ride, the network offers a variety of popular motorcycle lifestyle programming, such as Super Bikes!, American Thunder, The Motocross Files and V-Twin Motorcycle TV. On the competition side, the Amp’d Mobile Supercross Series, MotoGP and World SuperBike also have a home on SPEED.

SPEED is the nation's first and foremost cable television network dedicated to motor sports and the passion for everything automotive. From racing to restoration, motorcycles to movies, SPEED delivers quality programming from the track to the garage. Now available in more than 74 million homes in North America, SPEED is among the fastest-growing sports cable networks in the country, the home to NASCAR on SPEED and an industry leader in interactive TV, video on demand, mobile initiatives and broadband services.

at least is sounds like it's going to be better than Super Bikes, maybe they can go one episode without showing someone breaking a law and getting pulled over

I'll watch any show about bikes, good or bad. I even used to watch that stupid show with Rick Fairless. God did that suck...

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

didnt you know? this is how every responsible rider acts. They just wanna let the rest of the country know we all go 180 on the expressway and we all do wheelies and stunts in hidden areas.

Watching the Cubs lose is the opposite of appreciating a fine wine — it’s like watching a car accident in progress. It’s horrifying, yet gruesomely riveting, and you can’t help but watch and sympathize with the poor souls inside.
