Hopkins shakes up championship with double podium at Snetterton

John Hopkins was the name of the day Sunday at Snetterton for the sixth round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike series. After becoming the first American to take a British Superbike pole Saturday, Samsung Crescent Suzuki’s Hopkins won a hard-fought battle with Swan Yamaha’s Tommy Hill for the race one victory.

Foul Play

It was a dirty move. Hopper has been riding bikes long enough to know that he was a beaten man and that going up the inside with limited space (at best) wouldn't turn out well. Poor show John, poor show. If nothing else he robbed us of shakey's awesome showboating after the race!!

Foul Play .. KAPPS

I think the fact that Hopper made the move shows he didnt believe he was beaten .... Perhaps why he keeps being offered MotoGP rides and Byrne keeps coming back to BSB after constantly under performing at world level ... Just a thought ... !!! ...

Ave it..

Fair play to Hopper, it was a hard move but i love riders who'll do anything win. Nobody wants Byrne running away with it anyway.

Witty title, fair play

Since fair or foul seems to be the theme of the comments, I'll go with Fair Play for 300 Alex (Jeopardy). It was a hard move, but racing. Plus, he apologized for its execution, so he knows it was a harsh pass. Either way, it gifted a win to Kiyo. And I use 'gifted' loosely, as anybody in the lead pack could have won. Brooks did well to capitalize on the incident between Hopper & Shakey. Jake Zemke represented the AMA well. Good weekend of races.
