Nicky Hayden unsure Cal Crutchlow’s style will suit Ducati

Nicky Hayden says he is not convinced that Cal Crutchlow’s aggressive and all-action riding style will match with Ducati’s factory Desmosedici like some people have predicted. Crutchlow himself has spoken of the fact that his riding style is similar to that of reigning MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner, who remains the only rider to master the Ducati after he won the...

imho

hayden to wsbk ... fine with me ... at least he will have finally a good bike again and have some fun ;o)

cal to duc ... will be fun, however good or bad he will do.

also duc should stick to their motor and pay a good frame builder, like KALEX, to construct a complete new frame ... KALEX should suit rossi pretty good

My thinking!!

If Cal goes to Ducati next year through his own choice this is crazy. the bike is shit!! Hayden has rode it for many years and done nothing. 2 or 3 podiums in 4 or 5 years....2 in the wet = Nothing!! The chassis is already made by a good manufacturer in FTR England. fair enough designed by Ducati but the chassis is no longer the problem. The "offer" of Bradley Smith in Motogp isnt just a "offer" its a signed 3 year deal with tech 3. We should be encouraging young talent into Motogp and out with the no hopers Edwards, De Punuet, Hayden, all they do is make up the numbers and take away a ride from another up and coming young star. look at Moto2, how many awesome lads are waiting for a chance Redding, Iannone, Marquez, Smith, Luthi. Pol epagaro, this is the future. Edwards like hayden was good in his day but its over for them. they wont win another race with Lorenzo and Dani and Casey and Cal, Dovi ect around plus next years young guns. Bradl has ridden awesome this year and nobody has even mentioned him.

Something what Hayden has in the dry but Rossi does not.

MASHWREN Hayden got two dry podiums on the Ducati Indy 2009 and Aragon 2010 two third places.

Yeah whats the go with Herve, Smith & Tech3. 


I was kind of surprised at Herve's comment about Smith having to sue if he wants the ride. Not a nice way to deal with people. Makes tech3 look bad. Hard to suppoort a team with that sort of management. Boooo Herve, what a tool. 

If Herve and Tech3 signed a deal with Smith surely they have to honour it. I know smith probably isn't up to speed at the moment. He was a child when he signed the contract, Tech3 wasn't. I hope at the very least Smith gets paid out in full for the value of the contract.

"no hopers Edwards, De Punuet, Hayden"...?

First up chump, learn to spell properly and you won't look like a twat. And secondly, All of those riders have been on the MotoGP podium so get a grip mate.

Crutchlow ain't going to ride the Duc as he ain't that stupid, he will be with Jorge in the factory team as both Ben and Dovi have had their shot at the title on a factory bike and have not delivered. Yamaha want a number 2 rider and Cal has already said he expects at least another season before he can take on Jorge mano a mano, and they also get on well which is good for the team.

More likely Hayden will stay and be joined by Scott Redding.

YES!!

Spot on "thepornstar" everyone seems to be forgetting how much interest Ducati have shown in scott and they desperately need a hope for the future in a young rider. i get what you are saying YamahaGYTR but Hayden only actually won one race in 2006 didnt he? fair play he took the championship but Rossi lost the title that day in Valencia, Hayden didnt win it! i say move over and make way for fresh fast lads from moto2 hungry for success.

2 + 2 rule

anyone else think this rule might be there to force more quality riders into a CRT (Hayden, Spies, Cal, Dovi, Bautista, Redding, Iannone, Luthi, etc)? As for Hayden, I think he should stay where he is or put on a satalite Ducati (not sure if Pramac or AB are gonna be around though). Barbera should be put out to pasture, doesn't seem like he can put a race distance together and only gets his "fast" laps on a tow.
