So do they actually let them run the bikes or do they have to push them to keep the eco-freaks happy?

The company is in a tough position. Multiple users, in all sorts of activities, with several different political opinions. I'm glad that they have attempted to balance thier support by supporting our hobby. I'm also glad they are involved with Gas Gas. Makes you think that maybe they are really smart, I mean they sponsor a team with the toughest most dependable bikes out there.:)
