One or two odd comments on here. Crutchlow went down while in a straight line when he hit a patch of wet track under the bridge in the braking zone into turn 4. It could easily have been any of the riders because the damp patch was hidden under the bridge, and it's a good thing the session was red flagged and the problem spotted before any more guys went down. Nothing more to read into it than bad luck.

Bad luck, brave of him to get back out there all banged up. He will have time to heal up before the Brit GP. It's been great watching Tech3 this year, good team battles and great job getting up there in between the factory riders.

I'm not saying either are better.

I always support the Brit, but actually in 2010 Dovi was my fave, i actually like him, I think that with them being on the same bike and bar 1 round being so close together they prove there as good as each other.

Tho as this story is about the fall and not other riders, he tweeted earlier that he has taken skin off his "ar*e, Back and Shoulders" - his words lol

but he went back out so :)

For those posters who claimed Cal has been demoralised by Dovi's performances, how do you explain todays testing times, when Cal was quicker than Lorenzo. The mind boggles at people who clearly have nothing better to do than spew hate on forums.

More funny comments on this board. Crutchlow is fine, his recent performance overall has been pretty much awesome. Considering he walked away, one mean fall in practice doesn't mean squat.

Seems an expensive and potentially dangerous way to find an obscured damp patch. Perhaps in future tests the track should be checked before the riders go out? Seems like common sense, they do it on track days.

I think his fall last year at Silverstone was in part due to over confidence. Hopefully this will temper him a little. Just a little. That's all he needs IMO.

It's a funny old game innit! Although I'm sure there are plenty wanting to cheer him on at his home race the flip side is that it must increas pressure to perform and may actually cloud his mind a bit.

I will be egging him on from the sofa tho!
