John "Hopper" Hopkins (c-eniconˈdʒɒn_ˈhɒpkɪnz; born May 22, 1983) is an American motorcycle racer currently racing in the British Superbike Championship (BSB). Hopkins has raced previously in MotoGP, AMA Superbike Championship, and Superbike World Championship. He first raced in MotoGP in 2002 for the Red Bull Yamaha WCM team on a two-stroke 500 cc bike, and joined the factory Suzuki squad a year later, for a five-year spell. He raced for the Kawasaki MotoGP team in 2008, but they dropped him for 2009 due to the global economic crisis and the company's uncompetitive showings.

He was born in Ramona, California to English parents.
