This report is a little misleading - it gives the impression that Crescent are doing extra testing above the other teams. They are actually catching up by staying on in Spain to do Gaudix - other teams such as Swan Yamaha and HM Plant Honda tested at calafat before Cartagena plus some earlier rain affected testing. No choice for Crescent due to the late announcement of the sponsor and signing of Kirkham.

Good luck John and Jon - I am looking forward to Brands.

I'm not expecting much from Hopper. Just being honest. :)

I don't believe he's ever recovered from having his hip ripped from it's socket then a year later being mauled down and having his chest crushed by Tamada's Kawasaki.

Good luck and stay healthy.

All this he can hack it / no he's finshed job ...

So I thought, 'Well, let's take a look at how he did last season in AMA.
And its pretty weird.
Far as I can tell, Hopper was 10th overall (out of 45) but he only seems to have run in 10 out of the 19 races.
And he was on the podium in each of the last three races but not 'til then.

I think he'll do OK in BSB
But I won't put money on it just yet :p

P - He was fit for the last three races and was on the podium three times - that is why Crescent hired him.

He didn't run a full season last year due to injury / operations.

If he is fit I see no reason why he can't podium in BSB.
