They should have moved Bautista onto the production bike hes already had his chance and while hes quite a good rider hes not going to improve.

Redding is 20 and he could be not far from Marquez level and this bike will only hinder his performances.

Does anyone know if Gresini is now dropping the CRT entry?

This is good news IMO.

Gresini are a quality team and have a good relationship with Honda.
Sure it ain't a factory bike but if Redding impresses next year honda & Gresini could decide it is worth upping the spec.

I feared Scott would end up on a Duc, which might have been a career killer.

I don't know where all the celebrating the demise of CRT has come from. They're going nowhere, they're just being renamed.
Aspar and Paul Bird will both be running essentially the same bikes next year as they are this year. They'll be CRT in everything but name.

As for Scott, fantastic news!! The lad deserves to be in the top class and on machinery he can show his skills on.

The removal of the claiming rule means Aprilia can upgrade their motogp engine without the risk of it being claimed for 20k meaning the Aspar has the potential to be much quicker next year. Ducatti should be worried.

Back on topic it is a good move for Redding... if it all goes to plan it should be him and Marquez on the repsol bikes in a few years.
