I'm surprised there are no cartoony designs akin to his mostly (IMO) clown diarrhea helmets, but title sponsorship money rules.

when your team brand is so toxic you literally cannot get a rider to sign, somethings gotta give

I'm pretty sure that the contract ended this next year anyways, so this was planned.

Well I guess that isn't happening. Sounds like Tech3 has the deal inked with KTM for five more years.

So Gresini is crossing their fingers for Suzuki?

Latest rumor mill is AD04 takes MM93 place in 2021 on Repsol Honda for one-year contract

If MM93 makes a comeback somehow. Run a factory Honda under a different team and sponsors, but full spec third bike

Well, that certainly seems like the plan Dovi had as far back as mid-season when he was turning down whatever random offers came his way.
