    Thanks for finding that. Glad Ten Kate and their second rider (cough, cough Jake) will have a crew chief bringing recent experience with the MM system.

    I hope Honda has something for PJ besides Bold New Graphics.

    The question has to be asked , why did Honda persist in running Cosworth over MM for so long when they were clearly having trouble getting it up to the level of the others?

    Private team, not factory Honda. But why the private team decided to keep going that route? Maybe the team had more experience with Cosworth, of Cosworth was a sponsor.

    I find it odd that the Red Bull Honda team has still not announced who will team with Camier.

    Who else besides Gagne is in the running for this spot on the grid? Or has Gagne been eliminated as a option?

    When and where is the next test? January?

    Probably waiting for the year to run out on Bradl. Gagne could be under some kind of contract restriction as well. Many contracts don't end at the end of the season, but at the end of the year.

    WSBK? You can buy the package from Dorna, or figure out how to get Bein Sports TV on your cable/satellite/streaming service. I get Bein via Sling TV.

    Finally.

    Will be interesting to watch the progression of both Jake and P.J., as they will be on similar bikes, or so I assume.
