West Will Be Hopkins' Kawasaki MotoGP Teammate In 2008

No danny in here LOL

http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2007/Aug/070830.htm

The Kawasaki Racing Team confirmed their full rider line-up for the 2008 season today at Misano, with the announcement that 26-year-old Anthony West has been signed on a one-year deal to ride alongside Kawasaki's other recent signing, John Hopkins, next year.

Nice. That takes away Pedrosa's last bargaining chip.

Well, they kept mentioning the possibility of a 3-rider team though.. hmmmmm

I'm kinda leery about Hoopper leaving Suzuki..but there's gotta be a reason why he's moving. I hope West does good.

I think Hopper will take Kawi to the front just like he has done on the Suzuki but, with a lot less struggle. The Kawi is in top form and needs a rider who is willing to push it to a podium finish and we all know Hopper is willing to push the envelope if necessary.

i do agree... hopper has got to be the hardest if not in the top 3 working riders out there. Rossi makes it look to easy.

I think it's a great signing for Kwak... West has proven his ability to ride countless time. I mean, the guy jumps right into World Super Sport and wins 2 of the 3 races he enters!!

Remember... he won on the R6 at Misano earlier this year. So he is the only rider with race experience on this track going this direction.

You heard it here first, he'll finish in the top 3 this weekend.
