Cal Crutchlow backs Dall’Igna to lead Ducati revival

British rider Cal Crutchlow has backed new Ducati boss Gigi Dall’Igna to lead the Bologna factory out of its current slump. Crutchlow and Dall’Igna got their first opportunity to size up the task of making the woeful Desmosedici competitive again in 2014 when they began their new Ducati adventure together in Valencia last month. Crutchlow found the going tough on the current...

Oh......And tnx for the big Money Marlboro. Seems Marboro has more money then brains.!! maybe marboro doesn't see what is happening through all the sigaret smoke?!!!!!!!

BTW....very smart line. going to work to make it work!?!?! but what Cal was asking is: new bike! So just like from 2007 nothing but lies from the blablabla factory. the only thing duc did was design a new duc logo.

Oh dear,oh dear, oh dear

This really does sound like the blind leading the stupid here. If the man Ducati have employed to provide machinery to win races can't commit to building a new bike (totally new not some rehash of old ideas) then Cal should be hoping he can escape back to WSB in a couple of years without incurring serious injury. Ducati seem to be one long Italian joke these days. Their obsessions with outdated ideas is so funny.

Proof reading?

Read your articles before you publish them! Disgraceful, it looks like it was written by a dyslexic gibbon on crack.

"New bike"

 Lets give Ducati the benefit of the doubt for now. They are constantly changing frames and swingarms throughout a season anyway and in my mind those kind of changes are effecively a new bike.

IMO, it's wishful thinking on Cal's part. It's still too early to give up, but by induction, he probably can see the writing on the wall. I just hope Ducrapi paid him enough for his retirement.

2 messed years by 9 TIMES GOAT

kicked stoner out of ducati harshly, and spend billions on the 9 times lucky ass chicken champ resulted in bancruptcy. well, maybe that's the karma for ... what his name...mmm.... the owner of previous ducati... **** i can't remember it. LOL.


now, in history of ducati. the only rider can bring such greatness, made ducati known worldwide, even in my country, casey stoner, will be miss forever.


you like stoner or not, ducati would never be the same again even in 10 years more. chicken champ revamped that bike, mutilated it, but still, the monster still stand still and waiting for the right one to claim him back again. such sadness.

how hard can it be

 swingarm frame carbon aluminium. Ecu fairings etc. The japs listen the italians get angry. Change little and way to late. But it non of them they should be changing, because like i said for over a year it is the engine that fails. Its a heavy engine with to much vibrations.
