MotoGP » Dovi emerges on top in Crutchlow podium battle


'I knew Cal would be pushing very hard at the end of the race because a few times we have battled together like this and I have beaten him, so I knew he would not be giving up without a fight' - Andrea Dovizioso

dont be surprised if Cal doesnt finish in front of his teammate either next year. Yamaha most likely wont have the tire advantage next year so dont expect Tech 3 to be able to challenge for podiums either.

Not generally recognised but Dovi's only 3 Kilos heavier than 'Little Dani'.....strap 12 Kilos onto Dovi and we'll see how difficult it will be to pass Cal.
Need a level playing field before we start judging peoples performances on the same bike...

Dovi has taught Crutchlow a lesson at virtually every race. Simple fact is that hes the better rider and yet hes not even considered one of the best. Make your own conclusions.

Dovi has been racing over 10 years at world championship level at these tracks. If all that experience buys him is only 1/10th of a second over the finish line then Cal is doing just fine in less than 2 years.

@ Never Say Never

I actually quite like both Cal and Dovi so I don't really feel I was defending Cal. I simply stated some facts and the laws of Physics cannot be disputed.
The embarrasment must surely be yours, to have reacted so negatively to comments simply aimed at highlighting the difficulty of comparing Pasta with Fish and Chips.
