WSBK » WSS: Lascorz win forces Crutchlow to wait

Cal Crutchlow moves tantalisingly close to the 2009 World Supersport title after finishing second to Joan Lascorz at Magny-Cours; Eugene Laverty can only manage 13th after a fall.

Excellent, measured performance by Crutchlow on track...

...followed by an equally ungracious, undiplomatic and mean-spirited post-race interview.

Cal, it's not necessary to remind everybody you would have won the championship already barring mechanicals. Nor would it be amiss for you to congratulate first-time race winner Lascorz - even if you believed you would have beaten him had the race run to its full length.

I've been very impressed with the way Crutchlow has gone about his business on track this year. But interviews like that will win him no friends at all. He should take a leaf from Spies' book and learn to both win and lose with a little grace and humility.
