I'd love to know where Cyril's new motor is coming from, ASO helicopter? I'd also love to know how many engines with the same motor numbers they have. On the flip side, it is pretty exciting that social media uprise has made it much more difficult to cheat without everyone knowing, just imagine the things that go unseen and unposted.

If you're not cheating, you're cheating yourself I guess.
I'm staying tuned for this one.

Think it is just Pyn reporting the swap, not donating.

If he is donating, they're gonna owe him big.

See, it's like HRC vs. KTM. The amateur media concerns are fighting a very ugly match.










Plus I have another in my back pocket that prefers anonymity.

He cannot change his engine for Faria's as well, it would be good for nothing and they have not enough tools out there anyway.

RR's gearbox is sometimes cranky, PAU's exploded this year in Egypt and Coma took his last year at day 13 in Dakar as all of you remember. Since Coma accident KTM developed stronger gears (we have them inside as well) but apparently something went wrong.

With PAU's Egypt engine, side teeth on third cracked and destroyed half of gearbox, so there is little chance CD get anywhere near San Miguel tomorrow. If he cannot kick in fifth, definitely something is there flying loose. Of course there is always possibility miraculously repair the engine along the stage :) but I doubt KTM would take a chance with all this attention at the moment. I can confirm big teams has done it before (simply rode out there to some coordinates and changed what needed), but cameras will follow CD too tight tomorrow to take the risk.

Great stuff, thank you. We've been waiting for your opinion. Added to the Cliff Notes.

Not ready to tweet it, but it's good enough for the F5 mill.
