3 weeks
3 mains
35 race laps/week
(I'm quite sure he's the -ONLY- guy doing that! 6/5/4 & 20...right? Might have only done 34 laps at A1 &/or SD1)

So, after 2 years of Physical Injuries that were Very-Serious, we may want to look at the accomplishments and ask ourselves if there's any week-to-week improvement...?

I'd say so: 17th, 16th and 11th if I've looked at things correctly?

Comparatively, it can be argued that he's doing better than expected...especially in-light of the last 2 years.

I thought of this due to some of the things people say without thinking: sure, he's not "Crushing It"; but, after all the bones he's crushed over the last 2 years, I'm kinda stoked to see his perseverance and absolutely Awesome Attitude. The guy is a smile factory and seems awfully damn positive...again...that's pretty damn cool after the couple of disastourous years he's had.

So, let the Negative Nancy's rant all they want. I see a success story and I'm glad Kawasaki saw fit to give him a shot at 2016.

Wil, let's have some top 10s.

Good Luck!

I think he is doing ok considering he has been injured badly 2 years in a row and hasn't been able to race SX all that much.

I was hoping someone like Wilson could do the same but...

He looked really good in spots. Did not seem to be chasing the bike quite as much. He absolutely hucked some huge shit last night on a few laps and looked to be up for some rubbin and racin.

Im sure every factory team digs the extra tv time with their guys in the lcq. Will is getting better. He will score a couple top tens if he stays healthy.

Will Hahn. Great guy, great rider. Big fan.
But, he's in an industry that is too competitive for him to keep his job with the finishes he's getting. Battling with his brother in lcq's doesn't cut it. Don't expect him to have a factory ride after supercross.

I don't want to a pessimistic or anything but when more than 5 riders are recently out due to injury, it is quite obvious that Wilbur gets some better results ...

Your negativity has diminishing returns.

I'm happy with Wil's progress so far. It has been a long road back. It's still so early, he could post some great results up before the season is over.

Hate to be a Negative Nancy but Wil has probably been the worst backup rider in team Kawi's history - cannot think of a worse wing man ever. That said, I hope his results continue to improve.
