Get em Hopper!! Looking forward to the first race I don't expect a win but a top 5 or podium would be nice to build upon. You will see Hopper win a race at some point.

I I think he might struggle at Knockhill and Cadwell.

If he's is commited as he says he his, the bike is up to it and other commitments allow I see no reason why he wont be in the the three or even win the championship.

With due respect to the rest of the of the riders in the championship, they dont have his pedigree, do they?

After all he's one of the few people to have beaten Rossi in a straight fight and finished fourth in MotoGP.

Im sooo looking forward to this year in BSB...

Hopper seems to be a changed man who's now off the drink and has been training like a madman...
Add to that the addition of Shakey on the Honda, Laverty and Hill on the Yamahas etc.
I think its gonna be an amazing year. Cant wait until Monday

P.s. Ill forgive the cheesy one liners as hes a yank after all :)

And finally BSB has worldwide credibility. Now our American friends will have to take notice and i think that we will see more riders coming over to join the bandwagon !! BSB has it all now, great tracks, great crowds, a massive grid with great riders, and an un-interrupted 6 hour live tv coverage. things are not always better across the pond !!!! shame they will struggle to watch it !!

Yes indeedy, BSB is the place to be right now !!
i recently watched an out of date AMA race on Britsh Eurosport and there was absolutely no spectators, and there were cones stopping the riders going the wrong way, and pit lane looked like a camping site where the teams had to prepare the bikes in tents !! Whats that all about ???

Hopper needs to win the BSB title to regain some credibility as a top shelf rider. Hopper crashed his brains out on the Kwak GP bike, then went to WSB and got beat by Haslam with Stiggy before crashing his brains out again, then went to AMA and got his **** handed to him. If he wants to get back to GP he needs to show he's still good enough.
