I'm betting on it -- the lack of factory teams (Ducati are the only one -- they would have pulled out also except for contractual committment with Fila -- and it looks like their support is substantially reduced) means that the serious privateer teams all have a good shot. I am thinking that the Ten Kate CBR1000RRs could be the team to watch (expectation is that they will get "back door" technical support from Honda) and with Vermullion as rider....plus the recent rumors in European circles have Lavilla talking with them for the other spot.



I am disappointed to see only one R1 entered -- based on how fast the Supersport R1s have been at Daytona tests, I think a Superbike spec R1 could be extremely competitive!



Can't wait for the racing to start!

Hopper trains on MX several times a week, as do many other GP and other roadracers. This is an even that Suzuki have been trying to get Hopper to participate in for 3 years.



Could have just as easily happened in one of his training exercises. I suspect, however, that being jet lagged from having just flown in from Malasia could have contributed to the miscue.

Hey Sean,

Cycle World is claiming they've done the "first test" of the Vulcan 2000. You gonna sue?

I can't we didn't have the "first" test either.

But hey... Cycle World does have deep pockets and this is the USA, so what the heck... lets sue anyway!
