That was a great ride from Cal.
It does worry me that he has binned it 2 years running at Silverstone, his appreticeship seems to be taking a little longer.
But he is still improving all the time, this is Britains best hope for some time.

@OZPOM Watch the crash then watch Rossi and Haydens crash, no worries there mate, just bad luck.
I was lucky enough to be there today, awesome GP racing frm all 3 classes, but notably the way Crutchy went about business, nice one lad, me and how ever many 1000's of other brits there are way proud of you, scotty and the whole british effort!!

"Word in the paddock is Crutchlow to factory Ducati next year."

You mean you read in MCN that Cal was "interested" in riding for a factory team and spoke about Ducati... That isn't the word from the paddock mate. That's MCN

Passed all CRTs in 2 laps... Goes to show how far behind even a satellite bike they are. I think Ben's ride is surely under threat from Cal.

This is great experience for Cal, there was no real pressure on him and he proved to himself what he can do, it will boost his confidence and self belief...Good work mate.

Amazing ride by Crutchlow, starting from the back of the grid and finishing only 5s behind Spies on the factory bike, despite his injuries. Unless Spies turns his season around and starts regularly finishing on the podium, or at the very least, consistently ahead of the Tech 3 bikes, then his seat really ought to be up for grabs, unless having a US passport comes into the equation. Even though the the vast majority of Americans don't give a damn about bikes and bike racing, even a small percentage of such a large market is worth more to the manufacturers than a larger percentage of a small one.

I'd love to be Cal's boss when he retires and gets a "normal" job.

I'd give him a fooken hard time every time he took a sick day. He'd need to be in a coma before I'd accept him as being "unfit for duty".

Great effort Cal.....

I was surprised at how easily Carl caught Rossi and flew past. It can't be too far away before he is up on the big step on the podium...fantastic ride Carl...

All hail the Honey Badger!! Nice one CC, so proud of your performance yesterday.
"Hey Crutchlow, leave those Dukes alone" sung to the tune of a well known Pink Floyd number.
If you ask me, Tech3 went for the wrong Brit for next year, surely Scott Redding would have been the better bet?!?
