    "Hutchinson was taking part in a rehearsal for a mini stunt display on an off-road bike at the Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show in London on Wednesday morning when he appeared to twist his left leg."

    I am guessing Kawi are glad they retained Sykes now...Checa right there too.

    Way to go Laverty!

    Did Hopper really break his hand like I heard?

    Yep. Right hand. Highsided on entry to turn 2. Already back in the States for advice, and talking about giving the first round a miss. Bloody.

    Brookes was on Twitter, trolling for someone to put together some race leathers for the PI race (no leathers contract for 2012). Crescent confirmed that he'll betaking Hopper's place at PI.

    I'd say that's 1199 Panigale for SuperStock1000 as 1199 was not homologated for WSB this year and won't be raced in the superbikes. Looks neat.
