MotoGP » Crutchlow ‘never gave up’, closing on elusive win


Cal Crutchlow proves once more that he is increasingly deserving of 'alien' status as he scores a fourth MotoGP podium in five races, ahead of factory Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi.

i do not agree with the post...its biased.....

the only reason he had a chance to win today was the fact that the 2 most consistent riders are not der, and without them too marc beat him.

I don't mean he is less of a rider, but a satellite can never win a dani, marc and lorenzo 100 percent fit co'z the factory is always stronger...yes if we were to give him a factory honda or a yamaha,,,,,,,,mmmmmm ,,,, things could be so much different for him,,,
but alas it's just a dream and a topic we fellow posters will keep debating...
none the less... a superb race for cal, to beat rossi by more than 8 seconds....

year after year stuff can change a lot.. is not only for Rossi, every year that other riders experience Motogp they learn and start to become better riders!! Shure you can say and if Jorge and pedrosa where there, but they miss the race because of there on mistakes.. Where not Marquez or Cal or Rossi that whanted for them to crash!! Cal is right like i also had speck from Rossi pace at Assen, this where very good races where even if Jorge was the and Pedrosa was here the same result could had happen.. thats true!! Track afterTrack we have many stories

Cal has gone from having a frankly pretty awful first year into making himself a damn good MotoGP rider. Not quite 'alien' status yet because he hasn't won a race, but he's getting closer.

I just hope it doesn't all come to a sour end next year with a Ducati contract.

Give me a satellite Yamaha over a factory Ducati everyday. I am sure Dovi would have given back the extra £1m to ride his old bike this year. Remember, you are a long time retired, get the best bike while you can.

He'll take the Ducati contract he'd be a chump not to, go to Ducati put money in the bank lifes goes on and he gets to live pretty comfy. Stay at tech 3 and get shafted by the factory everytime a Spaniard in moto2 wants to give the premier class a shot. Tech 3 wont always have this level of parity when it comes to machinery and I'd doubt his contract with tech 3 would pay as much as a contract with Ducati. But if Yamaha does offer him a factory ride it's a different story.
