John Hopkins in WSBK? Maybe Not

With still no news about Kawasaki and the fate of riders John Hopkins and Marco Melandri and official MotoGP tests starting on Thursday, Hopkins is now being rumoured to be considering a move to the WSBK Championship to partner up with Leon Haslam at Stiggy Honda Motorsports and replace an ailing Roberto Rolfo.

The Italian rider is having plenty of problems with a dislocated shoulder and has postponed recommended surgery to test at Portimao and start the 2009 season opener on March 1st at Phillip Island.
However it seems that Roberto Rolfo is unaware of this latest rumor because this is what he had to say on his website:Hello boys!In these days I am receiving a lot of mail regard to my injury, I want in the first place say you “thanks” for your support! During the tests of Portimao I completed only a few laps, the lesion was still too much fresh; I knew that it would not have been immediately easy, but it has been however important for me to enter in track, to better know the bike and the new team! I’m happy because the upgrades them is very high!The days before the next tests in Australia are enough for being able to recover the form with a lot of motivation and training! I am not losing not even a minute of time, therapy, race, bicycle, swim, always with much music: thanks special also to Diabo for the songs of the “El Canto del Loco”! I will take advantage of every day at best, in order to arrive to the top in Australia for the next tests!By by… and always… Gasss!Roby44
