Yes, Geico is on Honda. He was testing two brands of bikes; Honda and Yamaha, and decided to sign with motoconcepts Yamaha

Or you could say Honda decided not to go w/ him, which is what happened. Honda didn't want to pay him what he was demanding.

What? And motoconcepts is going to pay his demanded salary? That's a little hard for me to believe there was deff negotiations on a price but it seems he made his own choice, just my thoughts

Maybe after he lost the Geico and another ride due to his monster sponsorship, I can't remember the team but all of this was posted on Racer X, he finally decided to settle before he missed another season.

In the previous quote you said it was because he wanted too much money. Monster sponsorship or contract demands? Which is it? I read that he wasn't thrilled with the Honda 450. Isn't fellow frenchman David Vuillemin Team Manager of Motoconcepts? Maybe that and the bike had something to do with it. Do you think Yamaha might have endorsed this move? Maybe get motoconcepts more factory support..or any at this point.

oh and monster energy is the sponsor for the quasi-factory Yamaha team in Europe, so there is a tie-in there as well.

Sources say Pourcel talks "dead" with GEICO and "nothing going on" with Valli source so what now? CP peeps asked GEICO to triple win bonuses

Sources say Monster Helmet deal killed Valli talks, bonuses killed GEICO talk--they must have an ace in the hole deal with someone

Well I guess the most recent sightings of CP without a Monster Energy Logo or any other gear from a "supposed" done deal...leaves Matthes looking like a blowhard that tried to scoop what wasn't a deal and present it as fact. Bad journalism.

Motoconcepts had CP himself at Vegas and his bike in the pits all decked out with 377 and posters and everything.

i feel that he signed for money and that there are only 2 teams that have proven that bike (2010 + yz450f) outdoors JGR yamaha and Stews team (kinda)

i think motoconsepts is a good team with some bank behind it but i do not feel that they are a team that is on the top level of teams that will be winning a MX or SX championship
