John Hopkins: Joe Roberts Deserves to Be in MotoGP

RiderTua.com – In the final Moto2 race at Jerez, Joe Roberts managed to lead the standings. John Hopkins, who was one of the last American riders to have success in the premier class and was responsible for training the riders at American Racing, firmly believes that it is only a matter of time before Roberts takes a permanent place in MotoGP.

“I’m very confident that Joe can win the Moto2 world title. He’s got the talent, there’s no doubt about that. Now Joe has the experience, now he just needs to get the confidence. If he believes in himself enough, I’m very confident he can win the title, Hopkin said optimistically.

Since the re-entry of the American MotoGP team with Trackhouse Racing owned by Justin Marks, an American MotoGP racer has also been on the wish list of MotoGP promoter Dorna Sports. Not only from America, fans also think that racers from America must appear in MotoGP.

The focus isn’t on whether it’s a kid from Kentucky, a surfer from Malibu, or a cowboy from Texas. American professional racers always shine with their racing qualities. And sometimes with their sideways style, entire generations of premier class are formed and dominate the championship.

John Hopkins is not just empty talk. With perfect performances in the first 4 Grand Prix of the season, Joe Roberts currently leads the World Championship standings. The fact that the Kalex rider finished in the top 5 against 3 Boscoscuro riders underlined the 26 year old rider’s excellent performance.

John Hopkins continued that he believes Roberts can finish in the top 3 of the championship, which could earn him a place in MotoGP. What this means is that this sport needs an American racer and he is the only one capable of achieving that for at least the next few years.

Hopkins thus serves his own racer and world championship leader to the Trackhouse Team. But despite all the enthusiasm, the young MotoGP team led by team director Davide Brivio has yet to complete the discovery phase. The highest priority right now is the progress of the sport regardless of the driver.

However, with the Trackhouse team committed for the long term and Joe Roberts who has developed in the best way possible, the chances of an American rider in MotoGP are better than ever.
