You guys did see Rodrigues at Dakar didn't you?



I'll try and find a bigger pic so you can read his helmet.

Yep, I believe Helder may have had a personal agreement with them when he signed for Honda, but that may not mean it had the HRC blessing?

The possibility that Despres will be back at the 2014 Dakar Rally riding with Honda’s Factory Racing Team has been discussed extensively on ADVrider. In fact it was discussed as early as while Despres was still racing in the 2013 Dakar Rally. Magnificent chaps, those inmates.

Seeing as nothing is confirmed about Cyril going to Honda, why wouldnt he join Speedbrain just as easily??

Those bikes are pretty good.

So Honda, KTM, ect., all want to sell bikes to all of us. What is SpeedBrain's driver. Where does their money come from?
