The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season is just around the corner, so it’s time to start planning to watch some races. For the dedicated fan, the Supercross season will have all the races live on Peacock Premium. That’s a $ 4.99 per month streaming service that offers a wide variety of sports and entertainment; NBC Sports Gold is no more. Since you only have to subscribe to Peacock Premium for four months, it is a much better value than NBC Sports Gold.
If you don’t have broadband access, and five dollars a month ruins your budget, you can still watch all the races for free on NBCSN, as long as you have a cable provider offering it and it’s part of your cable package. However, you will not see all the races live. While NBCSN will primarily offer live broadcasts of the 17-round Supercross season, five rounds will be shown delayed on the same day. If you rely on over-the-air bunny ears to watch Supercross, you’ll get access to three rounds on NBC; only Atlanta 1 will be live.
There will be a new broadcast team doing play by play. Longtime Supercross announcer Ralph Sheheen is gone, and Ricky Carmichael won’t be at the booth. They are replaced by Leigh Diffey and Todd Harris. Diffey played play-by-play in the early rounds of Supercross in 2020, while Harris has announced experience in IndyCar, X Games and college football, among a wide range of other sports. Carmichael will continue to be part of the broadcast team, albeit in an unspecified role, along with the return of Daniel Blair and Will Christien.
For a shot at the 2021 Supercross season, there will be a preview show on January 9 at 3:30 pm (ET) on NBC. Expect to see Eli Tomac (Kawasaki), Cooper Webb (KTM), Ken Roczen (Honda), Zach Osborne (Husqvarna) and Justin Barcia (GasGas) on the show. If the first broadcast is missed, it will air again on NBCSN at 5 pm (ET) on January 10 and 11.
