Before I start, I AM a Vermeulen fan from way back, but.....When is he or the team going to realise his career at this level is over... He seems to be non stop injured and unable to get anywhere near the sharp end. He should go to a domestic series if he still feels he needs to race and vacate that factory seat to a young up and comer.

I keep hoping with every meeting that CV will start to make an impression again. It would be really great to see another Kawasaki mixing things up in the top 10.

At this point though you have to wonder how patient Kawasaki Japan are going to be. It's all money after all, and they're not getting a very good return on it right now.

I think he needs to call time on this year, then almost forget next year, agree with the above, Kawasaki japan isnt getting much for all the money they have invested in him.

All the best to him though, whatever he chooses to do.

Like the posts above, I too am a CV fan but I agree that it may be time to bow out of world supers and go to a domestic series - BSB would be a good alternative and a way to rebuild his career, just ask Hopper !

So what do you expect him to do? Do you really think any rider would just give his bike away to someone else? After all he has signed a deal and has every right to ride the bike, all you CV 'fans'.

Its truly sad to witness the decline of a former champion and true gentleman racer. Chris is going through a bad patch in his career. Maybe he should review things and take time off to allow his injuries to heal properly. I'm sure that it will do him the world of good because he won't lose his edge. Once a racer, always a racer. Hopper is steadily rebuilding his career and is well on "track" to either get back into MotoGP or WSB.Chris should take a leaf out of Hopper's book before launching a full onslaught on the WSB title next year. The present scenario is only serving to dent his confidence and harm his reputation. I hope you get well soon Chris. All my best.
