Nail on the head. Weston earned it the hard way...he rode his tail off climbing the ladder until he made a name for himself. He wasn't signed right out of the amatuer ranks or basically "gifted" a factory ride. I think he's the kind of guy that won't let the factory-rider deal to go to his head. He'll ride hard for JGR or whoever signs him in the future because he really appreciates where he's at.

I wonder if other teams were persuing him, and JGR cock blocked them?. Anyway, thinking out loud. Good for JGR and Peick..!

I tend to believe that most the top pros earned their rides the hard way. Even if it was at a young age. No one is gifted a factory ride, they rode hard and got good results.
