Cal Crutchlow displays fighting qualities again at Assen

“Like in Silverstone I was right at the back but just decided to get my head down and recover as many places as possible,” he said.

“I had a really good battle with the Ducatis but I had a faster pace, although I had one big moment when I lost the front on lap eight and had to do all the hard work again.

“To be at the back and still come through to fifth is a fantastic result. But there is no doubt I should have been in the battle with Andrea [Dovizioso] and Ben [Spies],” added Crutchlow.

“With my ankle still causing me a lot of pain and coming from last to fifth, I can't be too disappointed and I leave here still fourth in the world championship and that is very important.”

@English Alan, hmmmmmm. Cal has probably performed more overtakes in his last 2 races than any other rider on the grid has all season! Cal's overtaking is just fine. Regarding the Ducati's, you obviously missed the Ducati's pulling away from Cal out of the corners? Cal took 3 laps to get past all 3 of them, 2 of them experienced MotoGP WC's. Not bad for the least experienced guy with a injury id say. And so do all the people who know their stuff.
