    I saw this picture on Transcend's Website (he has a lot nice shots from the Worlds). It looks like someone else is riding the Honda; the rider doesn't look like Minnaar or his teammate, and the bike has been given a paint job.

    It's probably one of the Japanese riders. Minnaar and Lehikoinen are not the only guys riding the Honda.

    Just noticed the Japanese flag on his left shoulder.

    Good point. I missed the flag on his left shoulder, I bet you're right.
