Cal Crutchlow savours career best second in France

Cal Crutchlow’s fantastic start to the 2013 MotoGP world championship continued in Le Mans yesterday when the British rider stormed to a career best second position. Riding with a badly swollen right knee and a small fracture in his leg after a heavy crash in Saturday’s FP4 session, Crutchlow mastered tricky conditions on a wet and then drying track to finish...

Give it a rest Bulto ...

... okay you're from the Midland's but that's no reason to sound like a granny. You're missing the point as ever with your double standards - who cares what loud-mouthed idiots like Crutchlow say? 


You've said before that things can be reported out of context so why the change now? Let Crutchlow say what he wants - he's like you in that no-one takes any notice of what either of you says. 

The point that you dismally fail to see is that Crutchlow started 4th and ended-up chasing his tail and Dovi for the entire race. 

Do you grasp the concept of learning? If so, explain it to Crutchlow because he made the same mistake as last year. 

Of all of the dickheads to post on this thread, you are the most disappointing because you should know better - only Noddy noticed the obvious. Crutchlow had the fastest bike on the grid and failed because he screwed-up the start - again.  

Hush your mouth, think a little more and give Pol a go.

What is the Status Quo?

considering his qualifying crash and his injuries. However the next dry race will see the 'Status Quo' - 5th at best and 6th if he can't pass Dovi.

So far he's been 5th, 4th, 5th and 2nd. Each one on merit.

5th should be his best shot on paper, given the presence of two factory Hondas and Yamahas, but the reality may be somewhat different. Not to mention the sound beating he's handed out to Bradl and Bautista so far on their near works Hondas - you know, the Hondas that are so superior.

Give the bloke some credit, he's riding bloody well at the moment.

Don't get me wrong I love to see Crutchlow and any Brit doing well (even Welshmen Benny) - but we have to face reality - given a normal dry race the best CC can hope for is 5th unless there's problems up front - no doubt he is by far and away the 'best of the rest' but what does his future hold ? If it's true and he loses his place to Pol where the hell is he going to go ?    Suzuki ? their return may see them no better then the current Dukes.  Ducati ? in their current form mid-field results. Bradl or Bautista's Honda's ? a sideways step.  He's between a rock and a hard place. The only rides which will really give him a 'winning chance' are either Repsol Honda or Yamaha M1 and unless Rossi or  Pedro quits at the end of the season that ain't going to happen.  Yet the guy does deserve a ride of that calibre.

What do you think ?

... check through this thread and see who flags-up nationality. 


Just like on the Redding thread, it's always the English who raise nationality as an issue. Oh, and it's going on on the Dovi thread too. Is every English person is a right-wing racist?

I hope not but the evidence is alarming - just like Crutchlow's failure to capitilise on good luck like: 

suffering only minor injury after his 3rd heavy crash in a fortnight; 
a good grid position; 
a crash by Rossi; 
an off-day from Lorenzo;
the first race in the wet from Marquez;
the fastest bike in a straight-line. 

Can't ever see him getting a better chance of a win - a strong ride, but he blew-it (whatever his nationality or gene pool).  Get Pol on it.
