Misano MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow storms to fifth front row

Cal Crutchlow stormed to his fifth front row start of the 2012 MotoGP world championship in Misano this afternoon. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider set a best time of 1.34.001 that had put him on top of the timesheets in the final two minutes of a qualifying session that took place on a full dry track after intermittent rain...

By the way, according to Sport1 where bike fans have to watch racing here in Holland. Lcr Honda and Bradl will get factory HRC engines next year. Ever closer to a full factory ride for Bradl. Hopefully Audi can help the Ducati engineers in the right direction. And there might just be 10 competative rides out there in 2013!

Good stuff Cal

Maybe Dovi has thrown in the towel as far as tech3 is concerned. He's so p!$$ed that Rossi was given the ride that he was battling Cal and Spies for and who can blame him for feeling that way? ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Best chance in a while of a decent result for Rossi tomorrow. Maybe the new chassis/swingarm is responsible but it is more likely from the lack of running that the big players have had due to the poor weather...

Epic stuff from Cal

His MotoGP saga began so humbly, yet is now on its way to something approaching epic.

I brought  a Superbike mag a month or so ago for the first time in a long time. Still a pretty good rag but they need some epic work on their editing.  I read of epic gloves, epic tyres, epic brakes and epic lunches.

Anyway here's hoping Cal has another epic race, another epic battle with his team mate would be nice. Certainly he's got his mojo on and anything less than third would be failure of epic proportions.

Anyway this epic tale of the travails of the low hanging fruit tax exile is sure to run and run.

Yeah..it's a right shame Stoner's not around.

To get his arse whupped by 4th alien Pedrosa on the same bike..hahaha.

Dovi best save all his big factory wages..he'll need every single penny after being forced into retirement at 28..fkin great move. Greedy money grabbing bastard.

Cal rules OK..haha.

Crutchlow rules what exactly?

well he rules Dovi in qualifying thats for sure, problem is he's been mugged off the line and Dovi is so late on the brakes he's been unable to get back past but give them open track and its Crutchlow every time

zero, point well made, at the moment Dovi is the better package as the championship table bares out but on pure speed its Cal and he is the guy with more to come in my reckoning, just look at the amount of corner speed Cal can carry compared to Dovi. dovi is a great rider no doubt and right choice for Ducati but Cal is quicker and i back him to prove it for the rest of the season.

Dovi

Has had his chance at the top and failed. He was on the best bike at Honda and still finished 122 points behind Casey. He couldn't beat Jorge either so Yamaha and Honda both know he's not as good as their top rider. That is why he's at third choice Ducati. WSBK is calling.

A funny expression, Flob

What is a hollow Podium ?

I guess you are implying that without Stoner, the first three past the line are somehow not as valuable as if he was there.

If so, it's an Interesting theory. I guess some people might apply this "Hollow Podium" idea to post Ago/  Duke or Kenny R GP's etc etc ad infinitum.

You can only race who turns up.
