We’ve known about it for some time. We’ve even known the air dates, but ESPN has finally dropped more details on their coverage of Primal Quest. The network will begin airing the one hour episodes at 7:30PM Eastern Time on Monday, October 9 on ESPN2. New episodes will be aired each of the next four nights, with the final episode airing at 2 PM on Saturday October 14 on ABC. Adjust your Tivo schedule accordingly. The episodes are also slated for EPSN2-HD, but I haven’t seen confirmation yet that the show will actually be in HD. I’m hoping it is however, as it would be a wonderful way to watch the race.
I’m really, really looking forward to watching the show. Not only did this years race seem to be one of the best ever, the mere fact that it is being shown on ESPN2 will expose a much larger audience to the sport than it has ever had before. Plus, the way they are handling the coverage reminds me of the old days when the Discovery Channel and USA Network would air coverage of the Eco Challenge back in the day. Perhaps ESPN’s coverage will help to draw even more people to the sport and I can’t wait to see what they have in store.
