Yes, I think there are several people who can keep up in MotoGP, but the problem is none of them will get a Honda/factory ride, and would rather race in AMA and win or try their luck at finding a good WSBK ride

@ racerxxx

Did you watch him in bsb ?
He was superb, and very unlucky not to win what is a very competitive championship so to say he was finished as a racer a few years ago is utter tosh.

Well said Realfan! The final race between Hopper and Hill for the BSB championship, with the guy who finished in front declared "BSB 2011 Champion" was every bit as exciting as Baylis and Edwards at Imola... In some ways even better. Several changes of position last lap with Hill taking it by 0.006 of a second.

Hopper is class!
