John Hopkins suffers potentially career ending injuries
John Hopkins has been through some horrific injuries in the past, only to bounce back and race once again. The former MotoGP star had a huge crash during this weekend's Brands Hatch BSB at Paddock Hill bend, losing the front of his Ducati on the brakes.
The 34 year-old suffered a broken lower vertabrae and two fractured knees during the frightening crash.
Back in 2012 he was forced to take a year out to recuperate from previous niggling injuries which threatened to prematurely end his career. The likeable American would leave a big hole in the BSB paddock and we wish him the best with his recovery.
