Re: Tetley
Well, I wasn't the one to disagree with your post but I would say one possible explanation was your leaving Bradl out of the list -- he is supposed to be on a factory-spec Honda this year. Other than that omission I think your logic is sound.

Actually, I wouldnt be at all surprised if Dovi beats Crutchlow again this coming season. What would surprise me is anyone staying with Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Marquez, in that order.

This was bound to happen With the new rules coming into force last season. Last year the none factory teams would have started with almost the same bikes as the works riders. They won't have that luxury this season.

But then again, you've about reached your full potential in motogp so its understandable...jerginz.

What a stupid statement.How the hell do you know how far Crutchlow will progress?

He is on a satellite bike for Christ sake.When was the last time a satellite bike won a race?
A podium is all he can realistically reach for.If he manages a few of them,all well and good.Noone can ask more than that.
And with Dovi on the Ducati,i think he may well achieve them.

It must be pretty tough for Crutchlow. Realisticaly to win he needs a factory ride. He is 27 years of age and a factory vacancy is not available until 2015.

Will Tech3 resign him for 2014?. His options to advance are slim.

I wish him the best.

@ aussie warrigal

I think Tech 3 will go after Pol Espargaro to partner Smith for 2014, so this is probably Cal's last year with that team.

I can see him being one of Suzuki's factory riders for 2014 if they decide to come back though. Especially if Denning manages the team again.
