Hey Guys,
I was just wondering, since Honda doesn't have a factory 125 team, who will race the CRF250 when it comes out. Do you think honda will run it under the factory or let another team like Plano pick it up. Just curious cause Yamaha let Troy run the 250F's so I just wanted to know if you guys think Honda would do the same type of thing.

I was thinking since Honda recently signed Ernesto Fonseca for next year, maybe he'll be on it. He is supposed to be racing 125 Nationals next year. Sounds possible to me.

He signed to race 250 SX and 125 MX so the crf250 may be a possibility for the outdoor season. Timing is about right based on this years introduction of the crf450

I would almost bet money that Fonseca will be riding the CRF250R in the 125 nats next year. Although, after his less than stellar outdoor record, I don't know if that's the best move.

Maybe keep Ryno on the team and put him on the CRF250?:think

do we know for sure that a crf250r will be on the market next year?
I mean the rumor has been around, and that can be said with all manufactuers, but has any one seen any spy shots of a crf250r to confirm that it is in the works... it would make sense, but you never know...
