Maybe Cyril thinks winning with KTM is too easy and wants a REAL challenge - like getting a Honda across the line.....

There is an old saying in racing - Cars 90% car and 10% driver. Bikes 90% rider and 10% bike.

+1 as long as the bike is reliable I don't think it would matter what he was on.

Now I'd start 26 threads about this if he was on a kwaka.
Good luck to him and the red team.

If Cyril can lift another manufacturer to the point they can take on the KTMs with a few other guys following him over, its got to be good for the game.

As I have recently re-ignited my love affair with big red, I am hoping Despres can make the Honda a winner!!

I think Kawasaki need him more.

But thats right they dont support their own bikes, just kick them out of the factory's back door.

Might make the result less predictable.

The actual racing should be as entertaining as ever.

I hope it's a win for the fans, anyway.
