I'm getting a bad feeling about this....
I see a 'not 100% fit angry Honey Badger' starting at the back of the grid, who then goes like a possessed man only to crash out again, further ruining spot in the championship.

Please prove me wrong Cal.

I liked the assessment from the commentators toward the end of qualifying-- "He'll just go home tonight, chew the foot off, and come back in the morning with a boot on the stump." :-)

At the end of the day, all riders start within a few meters of each other. Back or front makes no difference. If cal can get a good start, and weave through some slower traffic, he'll be in with a shout! Come on Cal

Ok clearly someone here doesn't like cal.

I said i hope he doesn't crash and wished him well and someone disagreed.


its easy to just disagree do you wanna explain why you want him to crash?

I hope he's okay for tomorrow - I was at Chapel when it happened and it looked nasty, but Cal's a fighter and (fingers crossed) he'll battle his way to the front of the grid and get a good result regardless!

Starting from 20th position is not a great advantage from an injured rider. He don't have chance for the podium, but if he can avoid trouble he can get some good points. I'm sad to see how unlucky he is at his home track, it's hard to believe it is the same place where he did his best ever WSBK races.
