Cal Crutchlow braced for tough Argentina after double surgery

Cal Crutchlow has undergone double surgery to his right hand and arm after his heavy crash during last weekend’s Circuit of the Americas MotoGP round in Texas. The British rider underwent a double procedure in San Diego on Wednesday after the learning the right little finger he dislocated at COTA was also broken. He has a pin inserted in the digit...

Rev..

The women are just great thanks....  They have bodies like buttermilk, tiny tanned waists with dental floss as underwear.  Large natural heaving breasts and blonde locks.  They usually insist on bringing their twin sisters . Both of them.  The hairy armpits I can overlook...

Dennis hopper? Is he still alive...

 Your pretty much spot on there. One thing is certain though, Cal has to beat Dovi over the course of this season to seen as a serious Moto GP rider, he has the experience now its time to do. I think he is capable even if it is a tall order

If Bradley beats Pol..

 ..over the course of the season not many people would be surprised. And why should they, Smith has had an extra year on the bike, getting used to the team structure and having the time to analyse the factory data. However, ask the question, 'who has the most potential to do best in the championship ( over the course of a career )?' and the answer would quite likely be different..

 

The same allowance has to be applied to Cal for this season. He's come from a satellite team, with arguably the best bike on the grid, to a factory team that has been struggling for years. He's bound to struggle at first, they all have...

Does Crutchlow have the natural ability of his team mate..? probably not. But to my mind he has more potential because he's a fighter and has the belief to be the best. Andrew's nothing more than a safe pair of hands, he's had his chance and has shown very little. Give them a good bike and my money would be on Cal every time..

 Im a fan of Cals but the Pol comparison is off the mark. Cal is in his 4th season now so can no longer be considered a newbie. He has to beat Dovi this year to prove his credibilty as a serious moto gp rider. There will be no shame if he gets pipped over the season but no team will consider him a serious prospect if he cant

Well, I was waiting for that obvious response you little tinker...

 ...when Cal and Andrew were team mates at Tech 3, the Italian already had 3 years more experience than Crutchlow on GP machinery. 

 

..Time's have changed and Cal's stock has been on the rise, where as Andrew's has flat-lined. In 2012 when they were team mates, the Englishman out-qualified the Italian 14 times!!!!..His lack of experience and silly errors gifted Dovo points and places on numerous occasions that season. Andrew brings the bike home..great! but he never leave's it all out on track and that's where Cal will have an advantage..

Dave, you've missed my point..

 ..I'm not saying for one second Crutchlow should be regarded as a 'newbie'..of course he shouldn't. I agree with you, at points this year, he has to show he can beat his team-mate. But there's already a clamber for his dismissal from some colder, wetter, darker quarters of this great land.

 

I'm just pointing out the fact he's on a new bike, one that has seemingly numerous issue's and it's only fair to judge him at the latter part of the season and not now.
