talk about a huge gamble!!!!!!
Maybe he will get his ass back in shape and find the determination he once had even though he is far from a front runner...

Not even sure he ended up on the world scene being he never won anything significant.

hmm, interesting. If hopper could just stay healthy he would be great. I suppose they will be a wild card entry in at least a few races so hopefully he can put things together on that bike.

He ended up there cause he could ride the shit out of a two stroke, if 4 strokes would have never made it to the main stage I think we would think of Hopper in a whole different way, he never really got on with the 4 strokes the way he did on the two stroke, he showed great promise IMHO. I personally wish he would have stayed in WSBK, I would have liked to see him healthy on a decent machine.

Anyone see his crash in WSBK where he got run over?

I thought he was a dead man.

Hopkins is an amazing rider, he was great on the suzuki which sucked. I believe he probably developed the bike singlehandedly since krjr had pretty much quit well before he retired. He just seems to have such terrible luck with crashes and injuries. Hope he turns it around and can make some type of comeback.

Amazing he made it through that, I though "if not dead, he'll never ride again" Crazy!

I Tivo'd it, I watched it over and over and in slow motion, how he walked away relativelly unscathed is beyond me. Right up his crotch and over his belly. A few years ago he had a footpeg go right up his ass. Not the best of luck for Hopper.
