I didn't think BSB would have been competitive at Silverstone when Hopper did the wildcard but i was wrong and said so at the time.
Now given that the Swan bikes are bought from the Yamaha WSB team i would imagine they'll be getting all the data they need from them. Laverty got two 2nd places and Melandri got two 3rd's i think, both scored higher than Hopper.
It's going to be an interesting weekend for sure, haven't a clue who is going to win but the usual suspects will be up at the sharp end i would imagine, hope the racing is good and everyone stays upright :)

Aaaahhgh, I don't know who to support....
Hill came so close on the Suzuki last year and has shown real talent in the last couple of seasons

I've always liked Shakey, great guy even better rider. Be nice to see him get another title

Hopper, come back from no where and genuninely seems to be grateful for being given the oppotunity and is doing his best to repay the team with a title...

And between them they've given some of the best racing I've seen in ages - Unregistered

I really am torn on who to support this year.
I've always been a fan of Shakey's, even going so far as to buying one of his race helmet's (ouch!).
Hopper has got to be the nicest guy in the paddock. I recently ran a competition on my website and asked him to tweet about it (giving away BSB passes) and he was more than happy to.
And Tommy recently redesigned my website logo (not on the site yet).
On reflection, I have to go with Hopper for the way he has rebuilt his career when it looked like it was over. To even fight for the BSB title at the first attempt is amazing, let alone winning it. And the way he has acted in every interview I have seen has been an example to all.
Good luck to all of them though, it's a shame there can be only one!

Saw Eugene yesterday at the premiere of Fastest and asked if his team were passing over the data from WSB to the Yamaha's....he said he was only going to give the data to Michael lol
BTW it is only showing at selected venues for one or two nights so if you want to see it on the big screen then i suggest you get them tickets booked...was rather good :)
