Ten fails Aussie Moto3 rider


A petition has been started to get Network Ten to get behind Australian motorcycle racer Jack Miller.


Channel Ten televises the MotoGP, but doesn’t broadcast the Moto 2 or Moto3 which not only often show better and closer racing, but also feature 19-year-old Jack of Townsville.

Jack is currently leading the Moto3 points with two wins from the first two rounds and a third place overnight in Argentina. His hopes of posting a hat-trick went out the window on the second last corner in Argentina thanks to a controversial bump from a rival.

It is disappointing that the young racer is getting no free-to-air coverage in his own country. Yet Network Ten’s website says “live sport is a vital part of Ten”.

Jack races for Red Bull KTM and has raced for Honda, KTM and Aprilia in previous years, coming seventh in the Moto  championship last year for FTR Honda. He is one of our best prospects of becoming the next Casey Stoner who also came up through the ranks of the 125 and 250cc classes. It would make sense for Network Ten to get on board his career early and show some support.


  1. Sack the programmer he’s lost the plot. Who wants to watch nascar shit instead show moto 2@3. No wonder they’re going down. A patriotic Aussie. GO JACK MILLER. Lets stand agaimst Channel 10 at Phillip Island.

  2. Who are the companies advertising on 10 during MotoGP? Is it not time to give feedback to those companies. Truthfully, I have not seen one MotoGP this season on TV. There is no advertising and I do not normally bother to look up TV guides. Last year, I was glued to the TV watching all 3 races.

  3. Yet, should there be a spectacular crash (and let’s hope that doesn’t occur) Ten will have it on their news.
    Get behind all Aussie sportsmen and sportswomen Ten.

  4. Ch10 have done a great disservice to fans of MotoGP & the supporting categories.
    For me, & many I imagine, Pay TV subscriptions are an extravagance that the household budget cannot afford.
