MotoGP: Crutchlow to remain with LCR Honda for 2017

Published: 23 June 2016

Brit Cal Crutchlow will remain with the LCR Honda squad for the 2017 MotoGP season, after confirming today at the press conference for the Dutch TT that he will remain with the squad for another year.

Crutchlow has had a difficult start to the 2016 season on the satellite Honda, but with improvements finally coming into effect on the bike he has finally started to make the progress he wanted – perhaps influencing his decision to remain.

He had been previously linked to a number of teams, including the factory Suzuki and Honda squads, while the LCR team were also linked to a switch to satellite Suzuki machines – a move that Crutchlow’s signing definitively rules out.
