Read on RacerX they are working together next year and Suzuki is throwing in support too. Will they be on factory bikes next year?

I hope so, they have earned it.

Wow.... I missed that last part in the observations.... RC and H&H???

I am very interested in how this all will come together... very cool I think!

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

no, think about it. Suzuki is basically out of mx/sx. they let yosh have at it. Now, they dont want the GOAT on the payroll, but dont want him on someone elses..... they have 2 riders.... costs them very little to give it to H&H and the GOAT and KDub get along along with Hart. makes sense

I knew about them working on this deal since back at A2. I kept throwing out hints about it on a different forum, without spilling the beans. I was hoping that RC was going to come back to the nationals and race this season tho on the HH team. RC needs to stay in the racing aspect of the sport, he is good for the sport. Wish he would race a few nationals.

How have they "earned it"?


Don't get me wrong, they are a great team, but a SX only deal and extremely poor results isn't really "earning it".

If RC is involved with the sport at this level, it is a good deal for the sport and H & H just upgraded their personnel significantly!

He will most likely be the riding coach/tester. And if he can bring factory support thats an added bonus. Who knows, maybe he comes out for a race or 2 like Hughes.

IMO Suzuki needs to have a team like H&H alongside their factory team. Kawasaki has Jeff Ward Racing, Honda have TwoTwo, and Chaparral, Yamaha - well they have JGR, Star/Valli. Suzuki just have their factory team representing in the 450's, that hurt them this year in SX.

They did have BTO... but yes i would like to see H&H on them, With the kind of budget and big sponsors they are bringing in it be great to see... Especially to finally see the team go outdoors!

Oh yeah, I forgot about BTO! I guess they weren't a huge presence in the main's this year though...

Either way, I can't wait to see what H&H has up their sleeve for 2013, Watson seemed really excited about next year already a few weeks ago!

If H&H went to Suzuki, wouldn't that be a conflict with their Dodge sponsorship?
