Not if the contract you signed contained clauses as ‘First right of refusal’. Plenty people in this thread view the ‘FRoR’ as a negative thing. But what about the positives to it?? It works like this.. Rider signs contract with Yamaha for $500k Contract ... more »

You really believe it was the BIKE that was the advantage?? Its an irony that you say it looked so ‘dialled’ when it actually spat poor Eli off ending his season.

No. Grown ups know and appreciate how business works. Holding a grudge isn't going to work out well for the rider and he knows it.

You don't know what you're talking about. I rode one (The KTM) on baked hard clay, the feeling of connection you get between the twist-grip and the rear tyre is like nothing else. Its not "Max torque" or "max power", its linear, its smooth, its confidence ... more »

At the beginning of SX Kr was saying the new bike was amazing. Before the end of SX he was saying they were “searching for settings” You can never believe a word they say to the press.

I’ve ridden the KTM. Granted, not the most powerful example but it was on a small track, dry hardpack clay- I’ve never felt safer or more in control! The connection between the throttle and the rear wheel is incredible.

Remember Henry’s YZ400 being bump started behind the start gate? Remember Roczens CRF being started before the Main event? People have short memories.
