Share your congratulations for Cal Crutchlow

Cal Crutchlow became the first British rider on a MotoGP podium in 12 years with a fantastic third place at Brno on Sunday. His first reponse to the result was to think of British fans, so we thought you might like the chance to return the favour. Post your congratulations for Cal in the messages below and we'll pass them on,...

The pain is easier..

I was at Donington 12 years ago, stood in the pissing rain, to watch a proper old school 500 race that was significant for being Valentino Rossi's first win in the big class as well as the last time a Brit, Irishman McWilliams, mounted the podium.

I was there 1993..where Foggy should have been the last Englishman to podium until his Cagiva suffered fuel starvation and he was pipped by McKenzie, a Scot...Doohan skittled the Suzuki's and it was the last time we saw Rainey ride a bike here in anger..Team boss Kenny Snr. was livid when Cadalora ignored orders from the Marlboro Yamaha camp to finish behind a battered and title chasing team mate, to nick his first win on a 500. Rainey was 2nd and closed the gap to Schwantz in what was to be a fateful run-in.

As an Englishman..I believe you have to go back to Leon's Dad, Rocket Ron at Germany in 1987.

That my friends, is a Silver jubilee..a fkin lifetime, pre-dating the internet as it does. Cal himself was a toddler.

WTF is the problem with us and GP success?

Cal Crutchlow gets respect for bringing a little bit of this Englishman's heart-ache to an end..the Full Monty and Bazza's last win, 31 years of hurt ago, would be bloody marvellous.

Well done lad..now crack on.

good enough?

whilst i am the first to say congrats  to Carl, i am also quite sure , as he no doubt is, that he has still to find .5sec per lap to be contesting for a win.He has always had qualifying speed as we have all seen in his 600 days , sometimes pulling a whole second faster than 2nd place , but this is a new ball game and he has to keep his feet on the floor, davisioso will keep him honest because he is no mug, but to find another .5sec on race setup will not be easy. Just look at Spies he couldnt produce anything like his regular brilliance in WSB. But fingers crossed for Carl I hope he can. It was certainly lucky for him that Ducati chose Dovvy, the Yam is a far better bike.
