The motorbike constructor duel is starting to take shape after two days of racing in Season 3 of the W2RC. Ross Branch, in command of the overall for the last two days, raised the white banner of the Indian squad in his role as team leader, aided by Sebastian Bühler's fourth place finish today. Cornejo netted Honda the stage win, but the red banner shines even prouder in the general standings, where Nacho, Brabec and Quintanilla rank second through fourth on their CRF 450 Rally motorbikes. It is the kind of teamwork that has already brought the reds two manufacturers' titles. Even so, the fresh recruit Joan Barreda could be just what Hero need to throw HRC into disarray. As "Bang Bang" chases his thirtieth stage win, it could be a good idea to start engraving the letter H on the FIM Manufacturers' Trophy to save time.
