"pre-DAKAR/HRC" rumour some of our attention for just a moment... and draw a parallel to this latest "development"
Let's assume (however unlikely one would think this eventuality would be... on the back of this; his fifth
win with the Austrian mother company) that Cyril Get'spaid move's to the land of the rising sum and signs with Mr Who'sazuki's team for an obscene amount of spend yen...?
What's the odds (and how paradoxical would it be) if this "new" bike turns out to be a ladder framed CRF engined bike with a moulded unibody rear subframe/fuel cell... EFI (sorted) and a "brains trust" (behind the rider) that would otherwise take ten years to educate/refine in house at eh? (H)
In other words... if "Cyril" defects... it WON*T be just Cyril... cause in wasn't "just Cyril" what won dakar 2013...?
