Exclusive: Cal Crutchlow ready for Ducati challenge

Cal Crutchlow has admitted the challenge of making Ducati’s struggling factory Desmosedici machine a winner again in the MotoGP world championship will be the toughest of his career. Speaking for the first time since the British rider signed a two-year deal to join the Bologna factory from the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 squad next season, Crutchlow told MCN in an exclusive...

What has he got to lose...

The factory seats at Yamaha are out of reach for a fair few years, Pol is coming on board and who Yamaha, for whatever reason obviously see as their future (why not Aleix???!!!!) and Honda are keeping Bradl now after he realised he better get his finger out... hey ho... everything in life is cyclical... especially in Motorsport, so Ducati are now at the bottom and can only go up... well lets hope it's the bottom... PLEASE PLEASE MR DUCATI :))

Is he Mad?

They shit on him last year and still he signs with them this year, they must be paying him well, but we are constantly told that top racers don't do it for the money, they do coz they are racers.

wish he'd kept the M1...

...just so I could watch a fast, competitive (and quite cheeky) rider battling for the top positions in MotoGP.  But things don't always go the way a die-hard fan wants in this Honda/Yamaha billion-dollar motorcycle world-championship.

There are some on here who can't forgive Crutchlow for taking the money.  A certain lizard comes to mind.  But I think maybe Cal did it just as much to give the finger to Yamaha.  From what I've read, (and who knows how true it is) the "improved pay" and "factory contract" that Yamaha offered to Crutchlow for 2014 consisted of $300K salary and a contract "with the Yamaha factory."   That means that right now in 2013, he is earning less than that and finishing ahead of riders earning millions, including Yamaha factory team riders.  I call bullshit on your 300K/yr offer, Yamaha.  You low-balled that one.  Also, a "factory contract" may not necessarily mean he would get all the shiny new bits sooner.  In fact, their new Spanish hope would probably get them first; he apparently got the "factory contract" first, even having never ridden a MotoGP machine, while it was only offered to Crutchlow as a deal-sweetener. 

That being said, Cal was arrogant to demand that he get a factory Yamaha seat in 2015.  Win some races before you start crying to take a world-champion's ride (oh wait, that's exactly what you did).  Seems that both sides have self-destructed our chance to see good racing.  Good luck to you anyway, Crutchlow.  You got the biggest balls in the paddock, next to Marquez, of course.

Win some races?

Who you talking about willy? Cal hasn't won or led a race in motogp. Can we get some clarification on the size of gonads? The prerequisite these days is to just fall off a lot, like Cal's doing?
