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.
