Blake Young would make a nice stand in and is an experienced Yoshimura contracted rider. I hope Hopper heals quickly, the guy just can't seem to catch a break, except for the bad ones.

What a tragedy. Im afraid its not the first time its happened to a rider and it wont be the last...That much said Im sure we'll see 'Hopper' scoring podiums if not wins later...All the best 'Hopper'

Hopkins needs to take a page from Stoner and Pedrosa's play book, get that hand healthy, then start risking injury. As much as I like the guy's ethic, hes got to taking care of himself better otherwise he wont make it. His departed finger is a testament to his will to succeed in racing over his own welfare. Take care of yourself Hopkins!
