Cal Crutchlow not upset to miss out on maiden win

Cal Crutchlow may still be seeking to end Britain’s 32-year winless run in the MotoGP world championship but denied he had missed a golden chance to claim a first premier win in Germany yesterday (Sunday). The British rider produced one of the best performances of his career at the Sachsenring to fight his way back from sixth to second, passing Assen...

Rossi and Cal have beaten each other 4 times each, while Pedrosa and Marquez have beaten each other 4 times. So no, they are not knocking the nails in their coffin.

Interesting. Cal's bike certainly doesn't seem to be lacking in pace. I think he mentioned after the race that the fuel load at the beginning wasn't such an issue this week. Either way he really excelled himself. Especially compared to his level last year. I think it will be interesting to see if Rossi will improve his setup & pace as it's mid season almost. It won't look good for him if Cal continues to place higher. Great for Cal obviously to be ahead of the factory bike.

If Cals form sticks and he manages to beat Rossi at  years end why hang about and if Dani again gets beat by another team mate to a chamionship why would he want to hang around.From what I see Danis hurting and Rossi aint gonna add anything to his tally.

Possibly but I think Rossi has room to improve but I may be wrong. He may not become a title contender but I think his pace may improve over the next few races. He definitely seems a tad better of late. Not sure what to make of Dani - I think he surprised everyone last year with his 2nd part of the season pace. However, he is not having much luck this year so MM may well surpass his this year.

No idea BUT

I'd be willing to bet its not JUST the bike that makes a difference , but the team as well and the things a rider doesnt have to do for himself which all gives the rider more time for setting up the bike to her/his liking , but as i said  i dont know .

oh dear wosi....

"The Ex van driver thinks everyone is as simple as he is" What has being an ex van driver got to do with being a faster MotoGP rider than valentino rossi? Would you care to expand on its relevance to the story?

Exactly noddy

They didn't tell Martinez they would give them the same engine as Lorenzo.

Whatever, in any case. Perhaps Cal is the only satellite rider for 7 years to really have a full factory bike. Even if this is the case he is doing very well, and I suspect the way he is riding has more to do with him doing quite a deal better than Bradl and Bautista than a marked bike advantage over them.

"If he were Spanish he'd have a factory bike by now but he hasn't,but he's not only learned to ride a GP bike but also the politics of racing..."

So if you had to choose between Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa you would bet on Cal Crutchlow to bring you home the Championship?

Or if you have an good enployee but not your best, talking bad about you and your company, threatening to go to the competition if he doesn't get a raise, would you get him promoted?

Rev, sorry Wosi

we all know Vales sexuality is a little.......... dubious but i think he's a little out of your league mate and you'll be handbag thrashing with ED as well.

still, i like a good eye scratching battle between 2 such strong "men".

Cal's doing a fine job and is on the up on all the evidece, Vale is improving but not back to full form, i think they're both shit hot riders as are the other aliens but one's in dire condition twisting his titanium plate, one has revealed his inate fragility again and Marc is, well Marc, what can you say.

Cal is doing what any racer worth his salt would do (unless you're Dani) and making hay while the sun shines, you'd castigate Vale if he didn't capitalise, be a man and admit that Cal isn't the dog eared no hoper you always claim he is, is he not allowed "tyre issues" like all the top runners do(with no discernable problem found on inspection by the manufacturer)?

there are none so blind Wosi..................................................
