Cal Crutchlow targets podium return in Misano

Cal Crutchlow is confident success starved British fans won’t have to wait too long for another MotoGP podium success as he goes in search of a second successive top three in Misano this weekend. The Coventry rider made a huge career breakthrough in Brno last month when he became the first British rider in 12 years to stand on a MotoGP...

Perhaps

Bradl, in his rookie year, is on a better specification bike than Crutchlow was in his rookie year.

After all, Edwards, with all his experience, faired little better last year, did he.

Flob, you want answers from others..

..and yet you choose to vanish when reply's are given that you can't argue back to. Yesterday, on another thread, you mentioned that Cal has crashed at 75% of races. I replied that he's presently 5th in the championship which makes him roughly 75% better than the rest of the grid. We didn't here a peep out of you after that...

Flobaloba..

Mr Flob.  You seem like a reasonable sort of chap to me.  So am sure you'll join my thinking that comparing rookie seasons for Bardl & Crutchlow isn't fair.  Bradl is a Moto2 champion (no mean feat) with intimate knowledge of the same tracks in the premier class.  Therefore he should be expected to spend less time learning the track and concentrate on set-up and different braking points.  He's also on a superior machine than the 2011 M1 satellite bike.  Crutchlow was a rookie on the 800's which (by most expert admission) requires a very specific line.  So not only was Cal learning the tracks, he was learning the bike, the set-up, the tyres, correct lean angle, braking points corner entry and everything else.   Bradl is on a different bike altogether therefore I would expect him to place higher in his 2012 rookie season than Cals 2011 venture.  Which he has.

Had Bradl entered last year on the Honda, then I'd take your points as valid.  So would Bradl when Cal came charging past him with a broken ankle at Silverstone earlier this year.  Sorry mate, just seems like your clutching at Dunlop ditch finders with your comments...

Your persistent and obsessive dislike for Calvin is fascinating.  "Slower than Crutchlow" - WTF ?  I'll grant you that WSS champion is not up there with the highest accolades in this sport but that only makes his achievements this year all the more admirable.

The only way that Crutchlow and Bradl can be compared as Rookies is the simple fact that it was their first year in the class but there can be no doubt that coming up through the 'feeder' MOTO classes is a far better and beneficial grounding and preparation than coming from WSS and WSB (as many have proven) - if I'm not mistaken WSS tyres must be road legal FFS.

Crutchlow is now looking to be 'our' must successful GP rider since Bazzer.  I used to piss myself with excitement watching Niall Mackenzie getting in the top 5 back in the 90's (even though he was Scottish and I'm English) and CC is now doing that regularly - why bemoan it just because you are Welsh (if you actually are) ?  Let's face it, you're unlikely to be seeing any Welshmen on MOTOGP podiums in your lifetime, or winning cricket, rugby world cups, football, tennis so why not get behind him since he's from the country that pays for your social benefits.

what pie is it..?

For dinner (or supper if you're public school educated - although I don't expect to find any of them on this forum) I like Steak & Ale, Steak & kidney, Chicken & Leek (firm fave).  For dessert I like Key Lime and Banoffee. Blueberry and Cherry.  Then apple.  In that order.  Served hot with ice cream over custard.  I saw a shark swimming in custard once - it looked quite dangerous.  Just like the boys on the edge of the rubber.  Hard bastards.  Pork & apple Sausage anyone?

What's cooking?

Cal has out qualified Dovi 9 out of 11 (he missed Silverstone) and..has a faster race lap than him in 8 out of 12 races.

In his own words I’ve rode well this year without being spectacular, trying to improve his consistency..learning. A lot of the time he's been battling it's been with his team mate, no sense in taking them both out? 

It's clear Crutchlow is as fast or faster than Dovi but Dovi is Mr.Consistent in the races, he's cute..we all know this, he was 3rd last year without a win on a Repsol ffs..
