Cal Crutchlow

Cal Crutchlow is the most rider to come from the R6 Cup ran alongside the BSB championship a decade After finishing as runner up 2011 British Superbike Tommy Hill in 2003 he in the British Supersport championship.

In he finished joint 3rd overall in the BSS with Stuart Easton champion Leon Camier and up Craig Jones. The following he clinched the title easily 70 points clear of current WSB Tom Sykes before moving up to the Suzuki in the British Superbike in 2007 as Chris Walkers mate.

After a mediocre 1st in British Superbikes with 8 Cal scored his first podium in the race of the season at Brands He finished 9th in the overall standings and to the Factory Honda sponsored by HM his new teammate was Leon Haslam.

second BSB season was much consistant, he finished on the podium 12 in 24 races with 2 wins and 3 DNF’s. Shakey Byrne was on form with his new Ducati winning the title and finishing 117 clear of runner up Leon who was Cals team mate, who in 3rd, 39 points back Haslam.

In 2009 Cal made his debut on the scene riding the factory World Supersport R6. The championship a two horse race between Cal and Laverty which Cal won, the WSS title with 9 podiums included 4 race wins. Not bad for his year in World Championship

For 2010 Cal joined former 2 World Superbike Champion and ex GP rider James Toseland in the Yamaha superbike team the R1. James Toseland was a little when Cal pointed out that he was the former champion in the first at Porimao during an interview. He being arrogant, just that he was beating such a profile rider as Toseland on the machinery in his rookie season.

Toseland was possibly still after 2 mediocre seasons in GP and history tells us that an JT is generally not that competitive. WSBK title defense).

Cal 2010 5th in the Championship with 10 3 of which were wins to teammate Toseland who only up a couple of 2nd’s and 3rd’s. finished down in 9th position Such an impressive performance Cal a ride in the Yamaha Tech 3 GP squad where Toseland had the previous year alongside Edwards.

In 2011 Cal had a year learning how to ride the GP He crashed out in qualifying for his home GP at breaking his collarbone and missed in front of a home crowd for the 1st on a GP bike. Cal struggled with the tyres all season but finished 4th on a at the final round in Valencia.

This put him 12th in the overall meaning he beat Karel to take the rookie of the year

2012 has started much with a front row start qualifying 3rd in the 1st round at Quatar. He to have got a bad start because his couldn’t touch the ground in the post race interviews. Cal moved up through the field and most of the race behind new Andrea Dovizioso.

Then he a move in the latter stages of the to finish in 4th position.

At Jerez he he is a genuine front runner as he 4th even after a mouse him awake half of the week. He Dovi again and pushed Pedrosa all the way to line finishing another solid 4th place.

At Silverstone this year struck once again on before qualifying Cal crashed and his left ankle. He was allowed to from the back of the grid at the minute when he was cleared by staff to compete. From place he managed an heroic all the way up to 6th position beating Nicky on the last lap.

Had it not been for a year of misfortune he almost would have been in a for the podium.

Things got better the end of the year with his first 3rd podium coming at the Czech and he scored a 2nd 3rd place podium at Island at the penultimate round of the Unfortunately a string of DNF’s him to finish only 7th in the championship Valentino Rossi on the Ducati, his mate Dovizioso out performed him by a margin finishing behind Lorenzo, Dani Pedrosa and the Casey Stoner.

Cal was not happy about n having to with the Tech 3 team for as Yamaha had Valentino Rossi in the factory team to replace Ben To be fair Rossi out performed Cal in on what was regarded as an inferior and he beat Cal again this by 50 points so I think Yamaha the right decision.

Despite consistent results, four (one of which was a 2nd place), Cal has been generally way off the pace of the runners and often left by Rossi who is in the twilight of his career. Yamaha have not offered him a ride for 2014 so Cal has opted to try his at taming the factory Ducati.

testing doesn’t look as Cal is already hoping for a new bike, with Tech 3 or moving to a Honda would have a better move. That with Marc Marquez on the while Pedrosa and Lorenzo to get faster I’m beginning to wonder if Cal ever win a race let alone the GP championship. If he cannot at least his team mate Andrea in 2014 I think he ought to going back to World
