Gruesome crash for Cal, the TV footage showed it looking all bloody and red raw on his thigh where the leathers had ground away. Nasty to see, and a sobering reminder that there isn't much material there to protect the skin when these guys slide at speed. Glad to hear he is ok after seeing that. (Though I had to laugh when some wit suggested that the red was actually the Ducati leathers he had on underneath).

Doesn't speak too highly of the kit Cal's wearing does it. Boots not providing adequate protection and now his leathers tearing apart. Maybe time to find a new leathers and boot supplier.

And Cal does know what he did wrong, so why is he saying he doesn't'? Here he says he wasn't doing anything different yet the interview with MCN he says he approached the corner faster than before with a little more lean angle.

I just hope Cal makes a decent start this time. He's got to do it a least once this year surely?

Was the red under the leathers not just a pair of undershorts/all in one undersuit? I always have 2 more layers under my leathers with my all in one and padded shorts

"If Crutchlow crashes so often with the sweetest-handling bike, the M1, what the hell is he gonna do with the Ducati?"
- I think the man is trying hard, beyond the setup limit to stay with Dovi and catch the factories. I'll give it to him he is trying hard, standing backup, jumping fences to get back to the garage, a fighting British Bulldog!
