Fretigne as with team Yamaha - France, now with Speedbrain - BMW.

Does anyone know how these "factory" teams, which are country or region-specific, are organized? Does this mean that the funding does not come from global HQ, but rather the company's national HQ? Do they get engineering help from the factory? If anyone has first hand knowledge, I'm curious?

Patrick was the only Canadian to finish the Dakar in 2010 and he does a bunch of different work projects with honda. He's on his way to check out the Shamrock but not as a competitor in October.
