MXTV on Foxtel Tuesdays
MXTV’s first 2008 episode goes to air on Foxtel’s Aurora Channel 183 tonight.
There are only a few hours to go until MXTV’s first 2008 episode goes to air on Foxtel’s Aurora Channel 183 and Brendan Bell is one proud man. Bell, who started the program from very humble beginnings seven years ago, said he was "extremely excited" this year would mark the 100th episode of the long-running favourite among Aussie dirt bike fans.
"It’s always been about making the show that I’d want to watch on TV," Bell, who produces and hosts the program, said. "I’ve always been a dirt bike person, so I guess we always had a hunch that if I liked it, then so would other people who loved the sport." MXTV has been popular among the dirt bike community and general public alike, gaining praise from some highly respected figures in the sport. Bell said he was "exceptionally proud" of what had been achieved, with the show now in its eighth big year about to air its 100th episode.
"But we are still clearly focused on the road ahead," Bell said. "Producing this many episodes of any show is a huge feat and believe me, we couldn’t be happier – but we’re not about to rest on what we’ve already produced. "Our goal is to make this series of MXTV our best ever and we’re confident that’s exactly what we’re going to do." Bell said dirt bike fans were in for some "great viewing" when the 2008 season of MXTV kicked off tonight.
"The first two shows are USA Specials and have some fantastic segments, exclusive interviews and coverage from the AMA race scene," he said. "Then we launch into heaps of race coverage from Aussie events, including the MX Nationals and the AORC, and all the viewer favourites including (co-host) Lee’s rider tips, mechanical tips, rider interviews, ‘Factory’ Matt Manning’s products review and much more."
MX TV will air every Tuesday at 8pm on Aurora (Foxtel Channel 183). The show will also be repeated throughout the week. Make sure to check out www.mxtv.com.au for all airing times, plus heaps of news and dirt bike info.
