Edwards, Crutchlow head for catalunya

"If we can continue where we were at the previous race without the mistake I would be happy" - Cal Crutchlow.
After falling during the team's home French MotoGP at Le Mans, Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mates Colin Edwards and Cal Crutchlow are looking to get their season back on track at Catalunya this weekend.

Rookie Crutchlow suffered his first DNF in the premier-class when he hit the deck at Le Mans, while veteran team-mate Edwards was at least able to rescue three points for 13th place.

Edwards was only eleventh at Catalunya last year, and has never finished higher than fifth, but is looking forward to trying his new chassis set-up at the Barcelona circuit.

"I am looking forward to Barcelona and to some heat," said the Texan. "It has been a little cold at the previous race in Le Mans. I never really had what I would say a great result there apart from 5th or 6th at the Dorna tests. But I like the track and I am looking forward to riding there with the new chassis set-up that we have been running. It feels good but we should see how it goes there.”

For Crutchlow, Catalunya represents yet another new track, but having proven to be a quick learner the Englishman has little to fear.

“Catalunya will be another new race for me. I am looking forward to going there as the track looks good," said Crutchlow, who qualified an excellent sixth in France. "I had a strong result in qualifying in Le Mans and it was a shame that I crashed in the race, but if we can continue where we were at the previous race without the mistake I would be happy. I think we are going in the right direction and as always I will be doing my best."

I hope for a good showing from Cal, his skills/mindset/work ethic deserve good results. Having said that 8th is the target if the 4 Hondas, 2 Works Yams and the lead Ducati perform as they should.
