Cal Crutchlow impresses on Yamaha 1000cc debut

Cal Crutchlow made an impressive start to the new 1000cc MotoGP era in Valencia this week when he ended a two-day test session at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in fourth place. The British rider finished less than 0.2s behind factory Yamaha rider Ben Spies with a best time of 1.32.550 as he quickly got to grips with the new YZR-M1 machine. The...

Jeremy Mcwilliams

IMO was the only "British" rider with the right attitude to win at 500 lately He knew he was as good as the rest of em .Most of the British riders seem to make a big deal of being British its more pressure they don't need . The Union flag seems to be all over their leathers and bike , not so much the Italians and Spaniards

Smith or Redding

One of these 2 as they are both proven winners at GP level will win in MOTO GP. IMO, unless lucky CC will not be a GP Winner. Mc Williams was good but not as good as Carter or even Mackenzie.

McWill v MacKenzie

I dont want to compare one against tother cos they were both good riders ; but McWilliams didnt get the chances MacKenzie did in so far as Yamaha Honda and Suzuki works bikes were made avaliable for MacKenzie , where as McWill got a private RS250 run by the excellent Queens University Belfast team ,satellite Aprilia in 250 and a 400 twin Aprilia in 500 gp which was far from fast, Carter yeah he won the French GP in 1983 , his best season in 85 I think when he managed 7th in the championship , McWilliams got 6th in 2001 and a win and some podiums along with that , so ......, anyway thats how i see it . I still think the pressure of being a British rider is too much extra baggage .

Right place, right time

Cal looks to be doing well, though it is early days yet with the new thou. Being in MotoGP now that the 800cc era is over should play to his strengths so you could say he is in the right place at the right time.

Such is life. It's a shame the change didn't happen when James Toseland was in that team, though. Maybe it would have suited him better, too. Then we might have had James and Cal in MotoGP.

Let's hope Cal's fortunes aren't marred should it turn out that Lorenzo can't develop a bike after all.

Backpage MCN

This weeks edition read "Rossi Slower Than Cal On 1000's". Come on MCN, get behind our man. Cal was great and seemed real comfortable. It should read "Cal Faster Than Rossi".
