i'm pretty sure Cal will do a great job with tech3 for the next year ( probably not the same season as spies this year ) but will fight with bautista and co...

Cal did a super job in his farewell race in WSBK he will be a good asset to Tech 3 next year but when he jumps on the M1 expect a culture shock as Ben once said.

Wtf. Finished behind two other british guys who beat him hands down. I am sorry but will someone please tell me what this guy has done to warrant this chance. One season 3 wins. Come on guys. Add to that the bloke is a plumb. His so called celebrations on the podium today were pathetic. Never been a huge biaggi fan but show the guy huge respect.

Finished in style my ass. Yeah one the first second in race two fair play to the midget but gp rider. Dont think so finishes fifth. Bloke is punching way beyond his weight. You want a brit with talent and balls the size of footballs then step forward mr rea. Enjoy next year mr crutchlow as mr rea and haslam right up your chuff

@ Flossy,

People tend to forget that Cal was a rookie in the WSBK paddock this year. To expect anyone to match what Spies did in their rookie year is insane. Yes, Cal finished behind Rea and Haslam, but how many years have they been in WSBK? And besides Spies and Cal, name the last rookie to win a WSBK race? Biaggi only won one race in his first 2 years of WSBK racing.

I think people's expectations of WSBK rider's earning MotoGP rides have become unrealistic after Spies performance last year.

I'd have to agree with Lloyd. Haslam has loads of world championship experience compared to Crutchlow and as much as I am a Rea fan, Cal does have a World title under his belt already. Those guys don't.
He has only improved through the season this year, and frankly why shouldn't he go? Corser went with only one WSB title, Haga with none (even if he didn't want to go, he was still selected), Xuas with none, Vermulen went with one WSS title.
