Cal Crutchlow praises ‘unbelievable’ Jorge Lorenzo

Cal Crutchlow hailed Jorge Lorenzo’s Catalunya MotoGP victory as one of the best of the Spaniard’s premier class career after the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider’s challenge was ended by an early crash. Lorenzo led home red-hot pre-race favourite Dani Pedrosa by 1.763s to cut the Repsol Honda rider’s world championship lead to just seven points with a third of the...

Rossi in his prime, not a chance, but the Italian isn't the force that he used to be. Crutchlow is hungrier and out performing him this year and all but his most ardent fans can see this. As it stands Rossi is not longer one of the "Aliens", but you never know, he might turn it around.

Oi Diablo, El burro sabe mas que tu..

What makes you think Crutchlow wouldn't have been challenging the Spaniards? - he was on the front row, he was fastest in warm up and he's beaten these boys before... Stop trotting out the same old tired cliches and accept that he's got the gonads to now make him a contender.


Muppet.

El'D...

"If MM had falled, Rossi would have won a podium "a la Crutchlow" but the lad still thinks he is at the same level as the aliens..." 


Crutchlow gave full credit to the fact that he inherited the podium at Mugello, but it only took 1 person to crash for him to do so... it would've taken yet another person to fall off in front of Rossi for him to get a podium yesterday. At Le Mans Cal did no such thing & in both he fully deserved the podium. Maybe not an Alien yet but he's bridging the gap on a satellite bike.

At least Cal took full responsibility for a silly mistake & didn't blame a bump in the road that everyone else managed to avoid lap after lap.

Crutchlow demonstrated he has the speed and the more I read about this funky fuel tank that George uses the more I think it might well be a/the solution to his early lap flakiness. At least he's got there using his own money eh? The Spanish love of spending money that doesn't exist is what will kill the sport for everyone no?

epithets don't really advance the discussion.especially considering the sense of what ElDiablo is trying to say. The race WAS boring. With the exception of MM nearly wiping out DP where was the action? It can't be taken away from JL that he rode a very fast disciplined race but he was in front of Dani who even now is still not aggressive in the overtake. Dani however was able to successfully block Marquez and come home second. MM himself seemed less aggressive and may have been warned off by his team, who knows. Rossi has done more for the sport than the rest of grid put together times two I just hope we aren't witnessing the end of his competitiveness. To say the sport will be poorer with out him doesn't even come close.

Maybe, but he also must take the blame for bringing us Rossi fans. :D

Yes, Jorge rode a perfect race without a mistake, but when the leading three didn't change places from beginning to end, it hardly made for entertainment. I won't miss it next year.

We are, the results are fading like the memory of his glory days

Cal wasn't fast enough this weekend he was already falling back and holding Rossi up, instead of using his nouse and taking the points available, he panicked. His entire season is built around kissing Jorges arse and finishing ahead of Rossi to further his cause.(he's probably thinking he'll beat Jorge when he gets the factory bike that must be half a sec a lap quicker)!!. Nothing wrong with that, but beating Rossi isn't gonna get any easier this year, as Rossi is clearly getting quicker. Yamaha also need a lot of help in the development department at the moment and they'll look to Rossi before Cal I suspect.. Cal should be a shoe in for Bautistas ride.
