The guy came 4th in the MotoGP World Championship- give him some respect!

Hopper is doing some trackdays, eh?
Could you imagine doing a trackday and having Hopkins come past you 40mph quicker?!!

I think I'd have to drop down to inters, otherwise I'd get swept up in his backdraft!

He's stuck his head up out of the trenches to be shot at.. If this works out for him he moves onwards and upwards.. If it doesn't he has nowhere else to go.. If nothing else he deserves respect for that.. Personally I'm not a fan but I am looking forward to seeing him at work.. I don't think he'll win the title but I'm sure he'll be a threat.. I just think Brookes is in a better position for Suzuki, better track knowledge, better bike, better back up.. Not so sure if Brookes the better rider but I am sure he's the one with the least to prove.. If Hopper is the better rider he still has all the other gaps to bridge.. If he can do that then he deserves to be back on the world scene.. And I won't mind eating the slice of humble pie coming my way..

I expect Brookes to be awsome in 2011, but I don't think he will have a better bike - Crescent have more experience and Jack Valentine is an excellent manager.

like Guru I am looking forward to seeing how Hopper gets on. So many things to look forward to watching in BSB - rider and machine changes etc.
