I want to see Bradl and Bautista succeed but I just don't see it happening. Maybe they'll both be moved aside for Nicky and Cal? I'm going to dream.
They (B and B) could be demoted to Honda supplied production 213s, maybe?
I am quite curious to see how the production racer goes.
I would rather see that happen over NH going to WSBK or Cal going to Ducati. Cal needs to be on a factory ride at this point. As for Nicky, I would really like to see what he could do on a decent bike for a change. The last time he was on one his results were a hell of a lot better.
The Suzuki made him look good because a lot of people thought the bike was a POS and he was doing something extraordinary on that bike when in fact the bike wasn't half bad as proved and stated by Hopper. Not that I wish the guy to be jobless but there are others more deserving of that seat.
Truth. I can see CC doing much much more with bautista's bike. I'm still unsure of Bradl and even Bradley Smith but will see for next year.
When is Hopkins coming back? If ever.
I wouldn't expect him back in Moto GP. Maybe AMA/DMG if he is lucky.
He is currently occupied with having re-married his ex-wife and having their first child.
Would be nice to see him healthy and able to ride again, but his best days are long behind him (IMHO).
He had that great BSB season a few years back and then was hampered by some serious injuries in WSBK. I bet he still has something left.
He's pretty beat up. In fact so is Ben Spies, who battled with Hopper in Aprilia Cup. I hope Ben can come back, but I'd like to see Hopper retire.
HRC's timing with Bradl couldn't have been worse. Bradl, as the sole German rider brings revenue streams that no other rider can. Perhaps an Audi owned enterprise would find synergy with Bradl? I don't really want to see Dovi and Cal on the same team again.
A couple of the most secure seats could unexpectedly open up this weekend as career ending injuries are a greater possibility. :eek1
Let's hope not.
Bringing Brad Smith to Tech 3 is a head scratcher. Maybe, they knew they were going to lose another Brit revenue stream soon?
Certainly, the fates of Cal and Nicky are more important to me than those of Pol, Bautista and Smith.
Yes that was what I meant. Just that he'd be contesting in the top 4 or 5! And yea seeing him at the Mile was a great bonus to my holiday weekend in Indianapolis!
People are too quick to write off Smith and forget what a mediocre rookie season Cal had. Smith is pretty much where Cal was.
Completely agree. I've kept quiet on the subject for this reason. You do have to remember the trouble those tech 3 bikes were having with the front end his first year though, even Edwards had a hard time. Nonetheless, Smith is showing well and consistently.
IT'S JUST A FLESH WOUND!!
Behind the rabbit?
I agree bautista is right there i beleive the fact he is using the lessor brakes and suspension masks his efforts and i think bradl also uses either showa or nissins not both, smith is doing ok for a rookie

Don't even get me started on Silly season and riders deserving better bikes.
Some of my riding pals have even started a petition to get Iannone on the Gresini bike
True, but MM has raised expectations, and Redding is a match for MM. I know who I'd want.
