Glad there was no broken bones! good to see the brits at the top.

Where was JT? Hope all the brits do well. Cal is my fav rider, but Leon should give him good run, along with rea.

Shakeys kool, if he gets the equipment he needs?!

Camier should be gettin sum podiums by middle of the season.

Brits

Great to hear that cal's doning so well on the big bikes and to of gotten away with that crash without any injeries.Glad to see all the brits doing so well. To answer Motoxmad80 JT was 6th fastest so not that bad. hope Rea, Sheaky,Cal, JT, Sykes and the 2 Leons going so great. Camier will be fast on the Aprilia well faster than Nakano last year and hope to see Sykes to get closer to the front this year he did great on the 2nd day of testing in the wet with the 4th fastest time. Good luck to allRiders for the coming season.

Top Man

This is why I love this sport, the guy has a huge crash, and then jumps stright onto his second bike, no fuss. These guys are so determined to be No1, much unlike other sports where most people would have rolled around in the gravel holding their ankle whilst crying

Crutchlow just ticks all the boxes, simple as that. Built a bit like Pedrosa as well, but not fragile like the Spaniard and as brave as they come (well he is a Brit).. He is going far but then pundits like Larry Carter of Road Racer Magazine tipped him for MotoGP stardom long ago.

Cal is a Nice guy and a Great Rider, but he is prone to making mistakes and crashing on the Superbikes, In BSB he made quite a few mistakes mostly clipping kerbs with the engine casing etc. I think he may finish approx 6th at the end of the year.
