Cal Crutchlow plays down Jerez speed

British rider Cal Crutchlow played down his eye-catching performance on the second day of testing at the Jerez track in Spain today after he finished third quickest behind factory Yamaha duo Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. After yesterday’s torrential rain the surface didn’t dry out until after 1pm today, but former World Supersport champion Crutchlow was immediately fast and found himself...

What you on about? At the start of lasst season Cal's bike was almost identical to Lorenzo's.Most knew that apart from you it seems.
As the season progressed as usual the factory team get the upgrades before anyone else but even then there is not a great deal of difference especially engine and power wise.
Why do people presume there is so much difference?
It's not the case anymore.

Put it this way....who is the best rider out of CC and JL and who has most experience and 2 wc's?
So if Cal's bike was that bad how come he can get so close to Jorge's time?
Or is it Cal rather than the bike? Somehow doubt it.

tell me why

winger are you related to the late 3358 by any chance?

So I presume you can tell me the main differences between CC's bike and JL's bike last season?

Can I also remind you when CE did better on the sat bike than the factory one and he is not the only one.How does that work then?

Come on Einstien tell me why JL's bike is so much better than Cal's.

shush now

all i can say is im a big cal fan and one crash from jorge or rossi could put him on a factory bike, but why worry about that when cal's on jorge's used engines and nipping at his heals, great solid testing from cal.

hope not fogno

Dont like to see anyone crash especially if they get hurt.
Would love to see Cal on a factory bike if anything just to shut him up but I think he needs the practice more than the bike at the moment.

I'm amazed we've got this far without the 'Tell me' get off your arse and find out instead of shouting your mouth on here about a subject that you haven't a clue about.

Hey Choccy cams

Let's add irony alongside humour, fact and reality as topics you have a tenuous grasp of at best.

As a subspecies you'd have to say 46'ers have an I.Q significantly below the rather disappointing 100 median.

Mutton chops

Carl's secret is his '70's hair and his penchant for A mixture of the late Joey Dunlop's barnet mixed with a bit of Rocket Ron stylee. Yeah, he's a gobby little scrote, but he can deliver. Regardless of Jorge, Dani, Marky Marc and the Doc, he will win races. Read it and weep all you Yankees, your boys are washed up and Brits are coming back. How do you like them apples?

looking better because of the bike nostro?

Nostro, I take it that we can assume that you believe that rossi is now on a better bike than jorge danni or marc then,? After all if he is as bad as you say he is, and can only do well with a bike advantage then he must be?! Or maybe he just needs to be a bit more careful where he puts things, after all didnt you say he'd lost it, maybe he found it again, perhaps it was down the back of the couch?
