So your a endurance racer for CMRA? Wow, I've always met really cool endurance racers.
A lot of people said that, but rossi has won more than 3 races. Someone obviously thought he was worth getting another factory ride.

It sounded like it was sarcastic because everyone is attacking me because I don't think Nicky Hayden deserves a factory spot. I enjoy endurance racing and hanging out in the pits and then riding a bike for as long as the gas tank will allow me.

Have you guys considered that a contracted rider is probably not even possible and not the first choice for contract / sponsorship reasons.

Second I expect Honda park the bike and don't even crate it for the next two fly away rounds in the Americas.

They need to give Dani time to get it sorted and try to come back for Spain.

Yes I have but mainly focused on deserving of the spot. I saw an article that said Honda is expecting to have Pedrosa race in Austin.

With The lead that Yamaha and Ducati have after the first race? I think Honda needs all the horses at the line they can muster for the Manufacturers Championship.

Dani Pedrosa is going to do another surgery and aoyama will take his spot for the next two races as he recovers.

http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2015/0...gentina/173122

I guess repsol Honda agrees with me that Nicky Hayden doesn't deserve the spot. If I were nicky Hayden I wouldn't ditch my team for two races anyway.

No, Repsol Honda just doesn't like Nicky. They also wouldn't sign Rossi if he were available, does that mean he's not deserving of a factory honda ride?

Honda has a history of bad breaks with their top riders.
