WSBK » Whitham: John Hopkins can run at the front

I'm in broadish agreement with open pipes & Marc on this ..... but for a slightly different reason. I reckon Hopper can adapt to the team if they're good - & they seem to be. Harder is to get straight up to speed on such a different type of bike. He'll be better than 90%, maybe better even than 95%, there. But To get on the podium he has to be getting at least 99% out of it. And it takes time - simply hours in the seat - to get that down to an instinctive level of flawless performance. Unlike some I'm very sure he *is* up to doing it. He has the background & experience & he has the mindset. I don't expect it to be immediate. A few race weekends, a familiar circuit, then watch.

MotoGP » Rossi, Gibernau put past behind them.

PR stunt? - Totally Pointless? - Absolutely Handy for a 'no news' day - obviously Sete is (or recently was) a hugely talented rider. But he's a playboy. With something else to look forward too he won't take it quite so far across the ragged edge. (Smart bloke & neither would I). But it means when he comes up against riders of Rossi's - and for that matter Stoner's - calibre he's disadvantaged. He *can* beat them ... but not on equal machinery. Some tracks the Duke might have the Yam. But now he's got Stoner on another Duke. Be interesting to see how Capirossi affects the equation on tracks where power's not the main issue, cause that smiley bloke's a tough little gitt too.

WSBK » John Hopkins 'confident of closing the gap'.

Its stupid to focus a lot his positions for the first couple of meetings - Given the gap since he rode a similar bike you're not comparing like with like 'cos he can't be fully up to form straight off. Look instead simply at his times and that's genuinely impressive. If he stays smart and doesn't chuck it up the track over-reaching himself before he's fully dialed-in then having him in WSBK is going to add to the competition.

BSB » ITV secure BSB terrestrial TV rights

I genuinely wish I could believe that MD09 but I really don't see it that way. The bitty coverage you get with 'highlights' means even if even if you're well aware of what's going on its annoying because positions alter 'out of the blue' etc.. If you don't have half a clue what's happening apparently its an incomprehensible jumble. That leaves race fans frustrated and has very little chance of bringing in new viewers. I'd be dead happy if you were proved right. Sadly I just don't think your prediction's the way it'll work out.

WSBK » Hill: I must strive for better results

Will you please stop posting that omflyingvee's a knob. He'll have to climb way further up the ladder to make it to knob. Tommy. You won't win because you 'hope'. You won't win because you 'must'. You will get on the podium when you believe you can and will. Start with believing what's ambitious but reasonable - eg, you WILL finish in the top 8, later the top 6. Kaizen mate - bitesize. You do have the talent - you showed that in BSB - so you can. But you have to stop forcing it first.
