Crash.net, the first website to publish the often uncompromising reports of Desiree Crossman, girlfriend of Suzuki star John 'Hopper' Hopkins, presents her latest news flash, as she reports on John's injury setback...

"Hey everyone,

"On Sunday morning, we were recommended to fly up to Dr Ting's office to confirm John's injury, so, I booked a flight that afternoon. Of course, if you book a last minute flight, it's not cheap, but we needed to know for sure, so we flew that evening to San Jose.

"We saw Dr Ting's assistant, who took some more efficient X-rays, which showed a small hairline fracture in both ankles. We were told John needed surgery the next day. I don't know how Dr Ting and his assistant, Twan, schedule operations because we fly up that evening, and the next day John's in the operating room. Damn good system going that's for sure...

"Today, John's taken it easy and is recuperating from the operation. He's already had some rehabilitation this morning, and we're up here until later this week. It should be a speedy recovery, but it's unlikely he'll make it to Sepang in two weeks.

"But we'll be ready for Phillip Island - woo-hoo! Opposite seasons means sales, sales, sales, so I'm looking forward to that. John and I think of it as saving money rather than spending money...

"Well, anyway, just wanted to update you all on the situation. It's been kind of hectic. It was a spontaneous injury because John rides MX all the time - and then this happens.

"Until then,

Desiree
