Cal Crutchlow: ‘I had to take risks’

Cal Crutchlow could not convert his second career MotoGP pole position into a fifth podium of 2013 after the British rider tumbled out of a battle for fourth in Brno on Sunday. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider was trying to pull away from Gresini Honda rider Alvaro Bautista and nine-times world champion Valentino Rossi when he crashed out of...

keeps underrestimating Rossi although Rossi is constantly beating him in race where it counts... staying on the bike is also important to finish the race...

He was moaning about the gas tank all year and now that he has it he saw that it is a compromise. As always you win in some place you loose in other. Now he starts better and he finishes worse.

He is already 16 points behind and keeps talking trash... Enjoy while it last cause next year on the Puke Dovi will take care of you again...

 I agree Rossi is outracing cal, but dovi ain't exactly lighting fires at Ducati is he now,until cal swings his leg over after Qatar next year I won't agree with that one,personally cals aggressive style could suit the duke more than dovi Rossi and co(baring stoners),to early to predict even if u want him to fail.

ow...

Even if it sounds weird, I would like to see Cal ride the Duke well. The truth is it won't happen. The Duke was riden "well" compared to the lethargic japanese bikes on those years. Today the game has moved on. No matter how agressively the Duke is ridden, it is not enough. Rossi got it and Dovi got it (although evrybody was stating that Dovi's style suits more the Duke than Rossi's...).

The bike is not good enough, riding it to the limit will result in Cal hurting himself, nothing more.

I critisize Cal's way of talking. He said that if this year Dovi was still in Tech3 he would be years ahead of him... Dovi was also in his 1st year with the satellite M1 and perform fantasticaly. What makes him think that he wouldn't also upgrade his game? Isn't this year sat bike better than 2012's?

The Duke broke everybody. Stoner left when the ship was sinking... clever. Cal will follow the same faith as Melandri, Hayden and Rossi unless Ducati Motor Co. decides to really invest in their machinery.
