Hodgson would have to be the front runner by far since he has raced the bike this season and is looking to ride a superbike next season. I wouldn't be surprised if American Honda offered him a ride of some sort next year. Of course they'd have to give him a pretty damned attractive offer because I think Ten Kate will offer him Toseland's seat.Who do you think is going to finish out the season for Honda? I've heard talks about Neil Hodgson and possibly Hayes but he's kind of wrapped up in winning a couple championships. I even heard guys on another forum throwing Kurtis Roberts around lol.
Anyone know the average weight of these riders? Or somewhere near it. Trying to figure out if dudes who are over 200lbs can be counted out in this sport?
Leon Camier is 6'3" so height is not stopping you from being a pro rider, at least in superbike He probably weighs somewhere around 160 though.i'm 6'2 220, evil3:CURSED FOR LIFE:icon_lol. but i still can tuck in and keep up with the best. but i really want to be at 200lbs by March of 08. so i would not say count 200lbs+ riders out. then again i think my height is more troublesome than my weight... glad i'm not 6'5
I've never heard that from Mladin. There are guys in motogp that are bigger than him. But size is really important with the new 800's. just look at that little bitc* Stoner lol.I saw Leon Camier in the flesh at Oulton Park recently - he may be over 6' but it looks like there's nothing to him at all - checking his website tho he's actually 170lbs but I wouldn't have guessed it. That's what a top fitness regime must do for him.
Doesn't Mladin say he's be too big for MotoGP? dosen't stop him winning in AMA though.
