Brilliant job by the HoneyBadger!!
If he gets top 5 at Assen with a 2 week old broken ankle then Lin Jarvis should be at his motorhome with a contract and a pen!
The old saying goes...you can stop them crashing but you can't make them go fast...
I had my doubts on saturday but ive been silenced.

@ rumours

Cal has been offered a factory Ducati ride that was confirmed on BBC

Do you really think on this form it will be the only factory ride he is offered before he decides where to ride?

@ MKpom

I too have been dumbfounded by Tech3's eagerness to get SMITH of all riders up there. But I think there were conditions to the contract for next year, and I do not think he has fulfilled them as the commentators said yesterday there is now doubt about it happening. I would much sooner see Scott Redding go up than BS.

@ justforfun

The British fans do seem to be fickle, very fickle. They love you when you're up and stomp on your face when you're down (Cal and Spies, perfect examples) but I don't agree about Cal being a Casey wannabe. He's agressive yes, and goes for it at the slightest sniff of a result, but that's where it ends.

LOL

What form? So if he doesn't beat a defending world champ, the 2010 world champ (ON THE FACTORY VERSION OF HIS BIKE) or the other two guys up there (one on a factory Honda and the othere his teammate) in his second season, when all 4 have AT LEAST 3 YEARS on him in MotoGP, then he's done nothing?!?!

He's qualified ahead of his team mate and beaten him 3 times this season. His MUCH more experienced team mate... It's not always about winning, specially when you're in no position to win.

he s on the best bike on the gird, ffs ... satellites and factory are pretty much the same in the first year of development. dovi has started the season njured and in a new bike. he s doing fine but look at ben . yuou don t get a "well done" in thefactory team for doing 5ths. you re either on the podium every single weekend or you re out. and having lorenzo as a teammate is a real pain.
