WSB needs a Suzuki next year. If he wins the BSB title or not Hopper has done enough to make a move up.

Id rather see him riding for Crescent in WSB than back in motogp.

I just hope the bike is up to it. Just remember that the front runners in BSB last year were nowhere in WSB. HM Plant were running around in 18th or so last year at Silverstone. They might have a similar spec but i spose there is a big difference in the electronics between BSB and WSB as the rider quality is definitely not that far apart.
I did wonder what Tommy's Yamaha would be like given it came from the Motor Italia Yamaha Squad...anyone know if they are going to throw their hat in with a couple of wild cards?

Mike i heard he was going to get a couple of rounds more with the Suzuki GP team, didn't realise it would be Brno....are they giving him another bike? Can't see them taking it off Bautista as he is doing rather well imo

It was annouced some time ago that Hopper would do Brno (IIRC he tweeted it) and since his replacement ride earlier Suzuki/Cresent/ Denning want him to do a few more if the money can be found.

Mabe there will be a Monster Suzuki at Indy/Malaysia/Valencia??
