"Sorry to say it but this video does a huge disservice to the great sport of MotoGP. Dorna (MotoGP right holder)as a generally savvy media company should take the production from SRO and take it inhouse. The DVD is 180 minutes long but the pre-race and race reports account for only about 120 minutes. While the picture quality is excellent, the coverage of each race is maddeningly inconsistent with in several cases the pivotal action being left out. The other 60 minutes is taken up by video tours of the participating countries (in most cases they used the exact same footage from previous year's DVDs) and the obligatory camera onboard lap which again differs little from previous years. Overall very disappointing, if I wasn't such a big bike fan I wouldn't buy it. If you want to see a really good racing bike DVD check out the World Superbike year review, its a far superior product (the DVD, not the actual racing)."

"Hi MotoGP fans. I am the Director of Sales for Standing Room Only, which released this DVD.
First. thank you for your interest in the 2006 Review. It was one of the most exciting years in some time.
Please allow me to address a misapprehension on the part of one Amazon reviewer; that this title might have been better if developed and produced by Dorna, the rights holder. In fact, it was produced in its entirety by Dorna; Standing Room Only distributes the finished product without any modification, straight from the source.
Customer comments are always important to us, and we communicate them promptly to the actual producer. Needless to say, we want to put out the best product possible. In this case we have no authority to alter the program in any way, should it be appropriate.
That said, I think you will all find this to be highly exciting and enthralling viewing, with a close contest between Rossi and Hayden, and a large number of extra scenes and interviews. Thanks again!"
A gripping battle with the Doctor and the Kentucky Kid

"3 hours of excellent footage (a lot of which you don't see on TV) featuring defending champ Valentino Rossi's uphill battle (particularly after getting knocked off the bike in the first race!) against series leader Nicky Hayden that came down to the final two races of the season. Lots of interviews and behind-the-scenes extras put the season into a pretty concise package. Recommended for anyone who likes the best in Grand Prix bike racing.

"what is up with the quality of image on this dvd, it looks like a cheap VHS image, whats the point of DVD??? Moto gp needs to take a page from NFL films and properly document their history, after all it's only 16 races or so. I could understand in the case of hockey or baseball with 1000+ games to cover. the worlds most exciting sport deserves better!"
