There is still bigger news looming which is a pretty strong rumor, bombshell-ish even to be floated, but it's not time for that yet....still not Cyril related.

Haven't we had pretty strong rumours for months? French frog to hrc then it falls on its tits. So glad we dodged a escargot on that move!!

I reckon the rumour is Colton udall to ride a few dakar stages ala Caselli. He is blindingly fast.

Which would be ironic since the Honda Crf motor came from a husaberg like design (including bucket of bolts noise) in 2002

Mugello is the time there is supposed to be some announcements made. Marc Martin (RTE?) let loose with some of it but as I understand it, there is more to come. Martino Bianchi simply told me to watch his facebook page.

so depray to husqvarna/husaberg under speedbrain. 2 manufacturers into 1 rider means 1/2 cost and still big bucks for depres. good way to market a new ktm brand.

From what I understand, I would be very surprised is Despres ended back up with any connections to Husky/Husa/KTM. In fact, I don't think we will see any rally effort from the Husky/Husaberg melding. This has been a very interesting game of musical chairs and oddly enough, I think Cyril may have danced his way out of a competitive seat.

Without the full factory backing from Japan, I don't see how a move to Yamaha can be viewed as anything else but a step backwards for him. Honda looks to be sewn up and less and less likely as I don't think they plan to make enough bikes available for another rider and I would highly doubt that Japan would release enough budget for Helder, Barreda, AND Despres.

And if your speculation, tips, and intuition is correct Where would all of this leave Quinn Cody ?
