Bike or rider?? Always going to be a difficult one to answer, but I think it is down to both. Factory bikes are the elite, the best, or supposed to be, so the teams running these bikes want the best riders on them. However, what makes a rider "the best"? Is it down to the fact that they have shown how good they are whilst riding a factory bike, or what! If a rider never geats a chance to ride a factory spec bike, what chance has he got of proving himself on one? The top teams are always going to want riders that win races, and let's face it, the only ones winning races are the ones on factory bikes!!
