American rider John Hopkins will be back in Rizla Suzuki motorcycle clothing this season as he is set to compete in the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Hopkins has been given a wild card entry to compete as part of a two-man team alongside Alvaro Bautista.

The 28-year-old has already turned out twice for the team so far this year, deputising for Bautista after he was injured in Qatar.

After missing out in Brno due to a crash, Hopkins is desperate to take this chance in Malaysia to prove that he is capable of competing in MotoGP.

"I am really pumped to get this chance to ride in a MotoGP race with the Rizla Suzuki team. I thought after Brno that I wouldn't get the opportunity again," he said.

It is to Hopkins' advantage that the Suzuki GSV-R is significantly more competitive than it was when it last rode it.

In the last race at Aragon, Bautista finished comfortably ahead of the Ducatis in sixth place.
