Pain is a pain. Get yourself fit and well and find yourself a seat in a championship that you can surely still make a decent impression upon - no question about it. Good luck.

Hopper, hang your leathers up dude, you have smashed yourself up too much and your body is now too fragile to take many more falls.
It will get to the point of when you are riding you will be thinking 'what if' all the time which wont be good for your mind and also the riders around you.
Go car racing or fishing and look back on a very good career with some great times.

Hopper won't be racing next season. He's taking next year out to fix his hip (possible hip replacement) and get back to full health physically as well as mentally. Good luck to him.
