The Stiggy Motorsports Honda's are damn near as fast as Ten Kate's. Their engines are definitely up there so Hopkins should be able to set it up well enough to be challenging in a race or two. I doubt he has a shot at the championship though.

Hopper has always been a good rider, perhaps on the wrong machinery and perhaps more interested in the $$$ than the trophies but... who wouldn't be?

Now, being said that, Haslam was able to Podium on the Stiggy Honda, something that none of the Ten Kate boys have been able to accomplish so far.

I am sure that 3rd bike Hopper will get is no slouch and he can definately help the development of it, perhaps by Miller we can witness some good dicing... perhaps even before? I am up for that!

Good to see Hopper doing something. He really got the short end of the stick. You may see him run near the front at some point in the season.

And his teeth bleaching ! Youve got to be wearing shades when that guy smiles ,its like a HID hearlight it is !

But really, the real question, DOES Hopper want to win ? Id love to see him up there battling with Spies, Biaggi and Haga-san, but, I really dont see it happening. Unless hes gonna be like Checa @ Miller -
