As part of the agreement between Alli, the action sports division of NBC Sports Group and MX Sports Pro Racing, which manages and produces the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, there will be more than 63 hours of TV on NBC, NBCSN and MAVTV and flanking live-streaming coverage of the circuit this season. Financial terms were not disclosed.

All told, NBCSN will air more than 20 hours of race coverage throughout the year and 15 hours of exclusive race recaps, while NBC will present more than six hours of live coverage, notably the Red Bull Tennessee National, Red Bull RedBud National and Red Bull Unadilla National. MAVTV will present all 12 rounds of live Moto 1 coverage to enthusiasts unable to attend the races in person, as well as an additional 24 hours of original programming.

He will be joined by analyst and two-time AMA Pro Motocross champion Grant Langston. Georgia Lindsay will serve as the pit reporter for all telecasts.
