The boy seems to have lost his cockyness. he must be learning by his mistakes of the past, which is a good thing. But i've seen it happen before where riders change their attitude based on what others say and lose their edge. It happened to JT in motogp when other riders did'nt like the fairing bashing in the first few rounds.
just a thought ????????? :rolleyes:

I'm not a fan of Crutchlow but wish him well for Monza. Well we've seen Toseland of old in the last couple of rounds, he looked threatening at Assen. More of that at Monza please JT. :)

Or maybe he's stating the problem to sound like there's something they can do about it?

Like he says, its a fast circuit. And the way Toseland's bike bucked in that high speed chicane at Assen - I'd make sure I was wearing brown leathers before I tried that again.

What's needed is to concentrate on a good race setup and not one that only allows for a single amazing QP lap. Get that right and it will make all the difference to earlier performances.

Oh and a decent start might help too.

Mr. Crutchlow is a really fast guy. I think he probably expected to come out guns blazing. Winning races much like he did last year in WSS.

I think he has a lot better idea of what it is going to take to win a SuperBike race. Just thinking he should and what it takes are two different things.

I wish Call all the best for the 2010 season.
