First off get well soon hopper ! Here''s to a speedy recovery ! Your an inspiration to everyone with the way you bounce back and get back to business ! Its been a rotten first half of a season for ya but all your fans know you can come back and stand on that podium before the year is out ! Last year you had a runaway 2nd at brno and a 3rd in misano so you have that to look forward to !!! Can''t wait to see ya back on track dragging elbows and pulling the best stand up wheelies in moto gp !!!''

So for how long is Hopper the rising star of MotoGP? Ever since 2002? He sure isn't lucky. Mediocre machinery and injury prevented him to get to the podium for what, four years? I really hope he can finally live up to the expectation next year, but Kawasaki doesn't seem the place to be. Maybe 2010 then? Doubt it... Don't get me wrong. I really like the guy and have utter respect for his toughness, the guy really is hard as nails. But he also must be one of the most frustrated riders in the field (bar most Duc riders ofcourse :) I'm afraid he will be replaced by a 250 or WSBK star in the forseable future.

It must have made good sense to Hopper to switch to the Kwak last year. He will have to stay with it because his CV looks grim for anywhere else. Still always the AMA to go back to. Someones going back thats for sure to replace Spies. Gutsy,hard and a tryer for sure but 6 years is enough.

Can I be the crew chief. I know FA about running a pit crew - but I do top brew and bacon sarni and I know a few naughty girls who would be only too willing to hold the brollies in their bikinis... :)
