In a way the actions of Honda over the last six months support this. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch of the imagination to wonder if they've been employing Sam, JC, Helder etc to beta test for them (albeit with a view to continuing to employ them on a future more successful evolution of the rally bike). Could it be that the mysterious new bike and Cyril's signature on the dotted line will be announced simultaneously later this summer? History shows that CDP is a winner, once the new bike is a proven winner it'd be "safe" to put Cyril on it.
