calls done a faster race distance than anybody today all on a satellite bike.. rossis getting all the plaudits as usual but cals improving in all the right places AGAIN this year and has focused on consistant fast laps and improveing his riding technique... we all know he had the speed but now ,at some tracks at least , he may just have slipped under the radar as a possible race winner.......

This is IMPOSSIBLE! All the "insiders" know that the satellite bikes are lights years behind the performance of the factory bikes. This must mean that Crutchlow in reality is actually a much faster rider than Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez and Pedrosa!

Awesome job Cal! You have a bike with race winning potential...make it happen!

"I could pick up some things about riding technique and I could understand that I need to be a little smoother."

'A little smoother?' ... a lot smother Cal!!! I like Cal, I like that he rides the bike really hard but he's definitely not smooth at all, if he could improve that I think he would crash less and could become a serious contender in motogp.

I'm sure that Cal will be reading your suggestions on riding smoother and will go away and work on his technique. His unsmooth riding style has just not been working for him at all up to now.
