McCoy would be a perfect choice. Vastly experienced, a consumate professional, plus after being so unfairly dumped by BE1 like that, he's gonna be hungry as hell. Plus can't hrut to have him develop the bike with an eye toward the 1litre bikes...

Big mistake. Hopper would be the class of the field if all the bikes were equal. The man is a riding god.

Those of you who think the Aliens (and I include Spies) are the best are sadly mistaken. I recently ran a computer simulation containing factors that the typical 'know nothing' fan could not even begin to comprehend.

I used Michel Fabrizio as a baseline. He scores 100. He's a select few from the list. It delivered a result like so..

John Hopkins 374.4
Ben Spies 278.1
Casey Stoner 262.3
Rossi 217.9
Nori Haga 216.4
Jorge Lorenzo 199.1
Daniel Pedrosa 189.2
Colin Edwards 124.3
Fabrizio 100
James Toseland 32

Thus proving Hopper is an incredible talent.

Wow. Just Wow.

I'd never have thought John Hopkins would actually end up top if the riders were scientifically judged. But there you go.

I wonder why the top teams aren't hiring him? He must have ticked someone off.

In other words he knows Jack about computer simulations or entering data and made the figures up himself
