Hopper back to GP in 2010!!

God knows what he's done to deserve this ride but there you have it...

Hopkins back in MotoGP for 2010

FB Corse announce new signing for next year's premier class motorcycle series

Posted: 22 December 2009
by Visordown News

JOHN HOPKINS is back in MotoGP for 2010 riding for the newly-formed Italian FB Corse team, the squad has announced.

Details are scant right now, but Hopper will be riding a machine cobbled together using parts (most notably a triple cylinder engine) from the now defunct BMW MotoGP effort. Hopkins will be in Milan on January 21st for the teams official presentation of their 2010 squad.

Hopkins endured an injury-plagued 2009 season, while riding in World Superbikes for the now defunct Stiggy Honda squad.

FB Corse has also secured Simone Gorztkyj to ride the teams Moto2 bike. It's reported the team will run both MotoGP and Moto2 machines during European shakedown tests in January.

No kidding eh?

I fear that Hopper's career is going downhill fast and that he'll be without a ride of any sort next year.

Anyone want to start a pool on when he (once again) has his season-ending crash & injury?

I'll admit, I kinda like the guy...but he keeps hurting himself so badly and so often, he needs to seriously think about retiring before he kills himself. Dude's not even 30 yet and he hobbles around like a decrepit 60-year-old.

I like him too but you're right; he's really kicked the shit out of himself these past couple of years since he left Suzuki GP. I'd like to see him turn it around but my concern (and prediction) is that he's gonna be on an underfunded and largely uncompetitive bike. If that's the case hes' gonna be over-riding the bike's capablilities and we all know what that means...

Ya that's more like it..... back where he can ride with a smile rather then a frown.

Good move I think.
