Why go back to MotoGP next year when he can stay and dominate for years to come. Kind of what like Mat Mladin did in AMA Superbike. He was offered a GP ride but refused. Hopper needs to set his footprint in BSB as the best racer in the series ever and he's doing an excellent job so far.

I bagged on Hopper couple of weeks ago saying he was flattering to decieve but seems a little humble pie is in order - and i will eat it willingly . I am very supprised but happy 'squeeky' is doing the biz and hope it continues , hoever it will take some big results for him to be the greatest BSB rider ever .In the mean time - GO HOPPER!!!.

Awesome weekend for Hopper this one, his best in BSB i think... if he's competitive at a rainy croft he'll be fast anywhere! Totally changed my opinion of him this year...

He's going great, and good on him. He's my outside for the title with Shakey my favourite. If he keeps this up I'll have to swap Shakey for Hopper in my MCN fantasy league!

I also think if he wins the title there'll be two 1000cc Suzi's in MotoGP with him and Bautista on them.

@ Juice - Please give me a link yo info that shows that Mladin ever refused a factory GP ride. I think you're full of ****e. Mladin had a Cagiva GP ride as a kid, but he never got another offer. Even if he had, I wouldn't blame him for staying in the US. He was making a lot of money and winning in a team that he built, which included many Australian friends. Why should he leave? If he had left for GP's, he would have done very well. Get over it.
