June 29, 2011 – Fullerton, CA - Pipeline Digital Media – the producers of “The Motocross Files” and “Epic Ride” – are proud to announce “The Moto Show with Jim Holley.” The all-new roundtable discussion show, dedicated to motorcycle racing news and entertainment, is currently in pre-production and will make its official debut to web viewers in August, 2011 exclusively on YouTube.com.
“The Moto Show with Jim Holley” (TMS) is a weekly 30-minute video broadcast featuring exclusive coverage of all things motorcycle-related – dirt, street and everything in between. Former Supercross World Champion Jim Holley will highlight the cast of the all-new show, and joining him in hosting will be Cycle News Editor, Paul Carruthers, and Motorsports Announcer, Laurette Nicoll. TMS will cover the wide spectrum of motorcycle racing, featuring in-studio guests, event updates and news as well as information on new bikes, product reviews and plenty of other surprises.
Pipeline Digital Media producers are headed in a bold new direction with plans to broadcast TMS exclusively on the internet. With content that will appeal to motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks, this format will allow viewers around the world to view episodes of TMS at any time. Because of this global reach, TMS has the potential to cultivate an audience much larger than anything a domestic cable carrier could.
“With the current technology available and how motorcycle people were using it, we felt it was time to produce a show like this,” said Todd Huffman, series creator and executive producer at Pipeline Digital Media. “Our goal is to build on this platform to not only offer weekly news-talk content, but to also provide in-depth motorcycle entertainment you won’t find anywhere else. We won’t be breezing across the top of motorsports news like traditional cable networks do, but bringing details, personalities and perspectives to race fans everywhere.”
TMS host Jim Holley is no stranger to the motorcycle racing community or being on camera. As a factory Yamaha rider, Holley won the first Supercross World Championship in 1985 as well as Ultracross titles in 1988 and 1989. He parlayed his talents on a motorcycle into a successful career as a Hollywood stuntman, with films like The Italian Job and Wild Hogs to his credit. More recently Holley has been the voice of live webcasts during the AMA Supercross Championship for Feld Motor Sports as well as the on-screen talent for SupercrossLive.com’s behind-the-scenes coverage. His knowledge and enthusiasm for motorcycle racing and his personable demeanor make him a fan favorite, and his role as host of TMS will put him in a well-deserved spotlight.
“It’s a great opportunity to host this ground-breaking series about something I have loved since I was a kid, watching my dad, Al Holley, race flat track around Southern California,” Holley commented. “I love the concept of the show and look forward to having some fun with Paul, Laurette and all of our guests.”
The motorcycle industry has already started showing support for this groundbreaking new series. Companies such as Matrix Concepts, Motion Pro Products and Pacific Panel Products are already getting involved to decorate the TMS set.
