Crutchlow rues first race off

Crutchlow thinks a double podium finish was in the offing had he not been forced off the track in avoidance of Jonathan Rea during race one
Cal Crutchlow says he is satisfied with his and Yamaha's performance at Miller Motorsports Park as he comes away from the seventh round of the World Superbike Championship with a third podium finish of the season.

The Briton bounced back from a disappointing result in race one, when he could only manage 11th position after getting caught up in Jonathan Rea's accident ahead of him, to claim a third place finish in the second.

Although disappointed not to have been able to challenge up at the front in both races, Crutchlow was otherwise pleased with his pace over the course of the weekend as he continues to make up ground in the overall standings.

“I think the first race should have been the same as the second one, unfortunately I got caught up in Johnny's crash and lost some valuable places. We've not had the pace of Carlos Checa and Max Biaggi this weekend, they did a fantastic job.

“I tried my hardest and I think we've done the best job we can. All credit to the Yamaha guys we've worked really hard for this result."

Absolutely, and he was always going to be. Yamaha have big plans for CC, and if you go back and read Meregalli's comments at the end of last year, he was obviously far more excited about signing Crutchlow than JT. Toseland has 7 years' experience on superbikes compared to a mere 2 for Crutchlow, yet JT is being regularly outpaced already, and you're going to see that even more as the year goes on. CC is on a steep learning curve right now but taking everything into account - age, experience, etc. - it doesn't take a genius to figure out which rider has most future potential.
