Neck injury relief for Cal Crutchlow

Cal Crutchlow will finally undergo surgery on his broken left collarbone today having learned he has no neck injury as a result of his high-speed crash during qualifying for last weekend’s British Grand Prix. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider broke his collarbone in four places when he fell heavily at the second corner in the early stages of Saturday’s...

Damn Shame

It is good to hear that Cal may be soon on the mend. The British GP seems to hold a curse over all the UK MotoGP riders (remember the trials of James Toseland). Maybe it is trying that little bit too hard in front of the home fans (and lets face it we would all do it if we had the chance),

Personally, I didn't think Cal would do so well on the Tech 3 after watching James struggle last year but he has surprised me and is obviously fulfilling the potential that the team managers could see in him. I think Cal's perfomances to date have been brilliant and a real reason to watch all of the warm ups, qualifying and racing.

I did find the racing at the weekend a little flat without Cal being there and if Colin Edwards can get a 3rd place with his injuries then what would a fully fit Cal have done on the day. A real shame.

Get well soon mate and get taking it to them again.

You only have to look at Cal's performance in last year's superbike race at Silverstone to appreciate his potential here in a performance that would have put most of the MotoGP pack to shame... so sad he didn't get to realise it. Get back racing soon Cal.

Hope he gets healed quick and returns to full racing with no fear. The country he comes from did not fare well with their last entrant, after his many crashes. Seems as though a lot of fans was hanging their hats on Cal getting a podium or dare I say winning the Silverstone race.

 

Cal Crutchlow is in 13th and is hailed as though he is giving Rossi a whoop ass because he somehow manages to beat him in a few FP and QP.  Thank god that Rossi helped him with the development of his WSBK ride last year, otherwise we may have seen a chap here in Motogp with no wins and some stupid WSS championship.

Here's to  30 barren years in Motogp with their best rider, a 2 time WSBK champion not managing to even bag a podium. Much less a 3 win, 5th place finisher named Cal. If this was supposed to be his crowning glory to getting that win or podium, well Rookie of the year is already out of his grasp. And he is riding and award winning 2010 M1. Carry on good man. Heal and come back ready. No fear!!

Glad he's ok, it looked so innocent...

At least he's ok. Shame for our Brit entry. Seems we're jinxed, or Brits riding the Tech 3 Yamaha's are!!!

The fall looked quite innocent. Crazy how some get away with it and others don't.

Cal

I'm amazed at the recovery from surgery for broken clavicles these days.  Cal's teammate did a fantastic job a couple of weeks after breaking his.  As to WSS being a "stupid" championship, Milkybars, how wrong can you be?  The 600s always provide brilliant racing - Moto2 or WSS.  Rather a full grid of really motivated racers, on pretty competitive machines, than the processional bore that a grid of 17 is currently providing in MotoGP.  It only gets really interesting in the rain.
