Good men do finish last....
"Food makes people fat - look at the people in the concentration camps... they went in fat but they weren't fat when they left. It's simple innit."
Should have given him a friggin carriage clock insteadI bet a few up and coming riders would have walked over burning coals for that ride in that race and he goes and wastes it
yep, what a tool.
Agreed. The only bigger tool is Hodgeson, for turning the ride down in the first place. What an idiot. "Concentrating on my Superbike career". WTF is that. Neil mate, you aint got a superbike career unless you have a bike to ride. He'd have more chance getting a factory WSB ride next year by finishing last in a MotoGP race than he would by finishing 3rd in an AMA race. No one in Europe watches AMA anyway, hence Jamie Hacking is still over there and will probably never get a ride at world level.Oli
WTF?! Hodgson turned it down?! That is an almighty fuck up! Jesus christ, who is his manager?!

at the end of the day duhamel and his father/brother(not sure which)doug duhamel. have been honda men nearly all their lives and honda needed a yank on their bike,he is still a fantastic rider that would still out ride most people if he was on a blade, maybe the bike didn't suit him as he only got his first ride on the friday.as you can see hodgson didn't want to make a fool of himself on a gp bike again.duhamel is not young and not stupid,so if he crashed he could have been out for a season or even finished his career,which is something people for get about.hodgson is racing in the states for the money now as do most of the riders.like duhamel,maladin,hodgson,ben and eric bostrom.would you say no if you was a racer,but then if it was harder than you though would you stay out and crash,seeing that you had already done 2 superbike races and a 600 race.where as toseland being young,said yes to the suzuka 8hr race went 110% and crashed out on the first lap and his race was finished.if he had hurt himself he could have lost the championship this year so is he stupid ?
