Cal Crutchlow will start from the front row of the grid for the third time in the opening five races of 2012 at Catalunya tomorrow having qualified his Monster Yamaha Tech 3 machine in third place. The British rider was in contention for pole position throughout a session run in scorching hot temperatures that peaked at 31 degrees and 10 minutes...

No need to remind us, stig

... FIGJAM takes every opportunity to remind us, himself.  He'll also tell you how much he rides like Jorge one week, then how much he rides like Stoner the next.

Also took a pot-shot at some "dickhead" (his words, not mine) who dared asked him why he lacked pace in a session.  Just like he took a shot and Nick Harris and Gavin Emmet a couple of weeks ago, and they're as pro-Cal as they dare.

Good start to the season, but he's proving to be the biggest wanker in the paddock by a mile.

It's efforts like this...

Er!!....whats a FIGJAM ? .

Yes , he did tell some bloke he is a " dick head " on twitter , not the way to go as a pro-racer or an ambassador for the sport .

I see he got a full page to himself in the SUN news paper today .

FIGJAM is an acronym (Fuck I'm Good, Just Ask Me).

The under pressure Texan just 0.004 seconds off the front row I am slightly frustrated but I do think a podium is a possibillity tommorow that would be a massive confidence booster.

Confidence and ego

"Dont confuse confidence and ego , theres is a difference ."

I'm not. If he was confident, he wouldn't have to tell us how good he is.

FWIW, I think it's exactly the opposite.  I don't think he's a confident guy in general.  Hence the need to reassure us (and himself) of how well he's doing, and come up with wild statements when things don't go so well (eg. Dovi was pulling 10 bike lengths on the straight).

He certainly ran out of confidence last year.

He's not a bad bloke ... just a bit of a figjam.

Settle petal

As a card carrying member of the Rossi-n-Uchi-4-eva club, I thought it was all about the personality.  Or that doesn't matter now that your best guy is the biggest wanker in the paddock?

He should do alright on Sunday, as long as Dovi doesn't pull those invisible 10 bike lengths on the straights, again.   Hahahahaha.
