Injured Hopkins to Miss Donington

Wednesday, May 9, 2012
Crescent FIXI Suzuki's John Hopkins will be forced to miss this weekend's World Superbike race at Donington in England due to the injuries he sustained in a high-speed crash last time out at Monza.

Hopkins high-sided during the first race at Monza on Sunday and suffered a broken bone in his right foot and torn muscles in his left hip. It was originally expected that Hopkins would be fit to ride at Donington, but a further scan revealed the injury to be worst than first thought and he has no choice but to miss the event. It is hoped that Hopkins will make a full recovery in time for the US round of the World Superbike championship on Monday May 28th.

Crescent FIXI Suzuki will make an announcement on a replacement rider in the near future

Hopkins is such a load! Retire already. No one cares to watch you finish in 10-12th place and break a bone or two each week. Bye Bye
