A Message From Hopper

Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>This just in from Red Bull Yamaha's young American GP star John Hopkins, who, along with girfriend Desiree Crossman, has relocated to Clermont-Ferrand, France, near the team's trainer:<BR><BR>Hi everyone, can't talk long due to the no-phone-hookup-in-apartment dilema and using the internet cafe. We are good, it's beautiful here and the weather is lovely. We leave for Spain next week for a week and then off to Italy. We bought a car the other day, it's an Alfa Romero. It looks like a Ford Focus kind of. It's alright. Parking here, though, is a bitch!<BR><BR>We've been kept busy and we like our apartment. It's right dab in the middle of the city center so it's busy! We have a great view, problem is my camera died so I have no battery to take pics. I will find one ASAP. We will keep in touch whenever we can. We're trying to get internet access ASAP cuz these French keyboards are irritating. Salù.... John and Des
