Scanning through the report, I accidentaly read one part as "...Crutchlow will be retiring to satellite status next year..." . Oops - Freudian slip, if ever there was one :)

mrfill: "Cal is a professional, reliable, and top performer as CWMFX.COM is. Perfect synergy."

Is he saying Cal is a bit like a banker?


I reckon many people here have already started feeling skeptical about the credibility of CWMFX.COM by the company's CEO saying it. lol


As professional as Cal, who remains reluctant to adapt his riding style to the bike given to him and just keeps complaining about his equipment?

As reliable as Cal, who announced leaving Ducati just a week after the Ducati's official announcement of staying another year at WDM?

Top ranking as Cal, who is ranked 14th on board a factory bike?


It's really hilarious....

better watch out Cal, commentators might start talking about how you like to set your bike up like a chopper. I guess Bradl dumped it too many times.

Lets be realistic,

To those who say Cal deserves a repsol ride.

These are the questions to be answered:

What has Cal achieved in his premier class career? lower class? the NOTHING itself!

Is he talented than the likes of Iannone, Espargaro, Vinales...etc?? Definitely NOT!!

Is he a hard working rider? He is NOT!

Is he consistent?? He is NOT!

Has Cal ever beaten his team mates?? NEVER!

Has Cal ever challenged any of the top guys? NEVER !!

and WHY Cal is getting a Honda ride? The answer is because of th ebritish sponsor and his nationality !! NOTHING ELSE !!

I am absolutely certain that Cal won't be able to do any better than what he did at Tech 3 simply because he is not that skilled and on the top of that he is NOT e professional rider.

Actually I'm not sure what to make of this. I also have no idea how CC will go on the LCR.

The LCR is not capable of winning. It could be, but the Hondas that get dibs on wins have to have Repsol on the Fairings.

But its good enough to run top 5 with odd forays onto lower podium steps with a little bit of good fortune imo.

In other words, better than the current Ducati (& I say that as someone with lots of respect for Dovi & what he's doing on it).

I agree with many others who say Cal has to do better than Bradl to stay in MotoGP. I also think that hes got a mountain of reality to get over before he will get another full factory ride, there just arent enough and he's more likely to be passed over or one will never come up in his remaining MotoGP seasons.

Tetley: He had to leave Tech3 as Herve had pre-signed Bradley which meant there was no bike for Cal


A fact that everyone seems to forget! Honda wanted Cal for 2014 however the team pushed to keep SB, meaning that the only 'ok' bike was the Ducati. Where else would he go? Forward racing?

After all, Cal did use his exit clause, which is there for a reason. Let's face it, the Ducati is dog. I don't believe that Cal used the media well, which disappointed me, but then he did go from being the top non factory rider last year to going nowhere, which can't have been easy.

I honestly believe that Cal could very well be the top bike after the two Hondas and Yamahas again in 2015.

However, he does need to be at that level otherwise he won't get another chance.

Cal is at least as good as the others on sat bikes.
