Ask Cal Crutchlow a question

It’s time for another Motor Sport podcast… and this month we are delving into the world of MotoGP for the first time.

Isle of Man TT winner, and Motor Sport writer, Mat Oxley has amazingly managed to pin down Cal Crutchlow ahead of the British Grand Prix and we’ll be heading to Silverstone tomorrow to quiz the British rider about the world of motorcycle racing.

    Hello All,

    Two questions for Cal

    - Does he agree with the concept of CRT bikes or should the bigger teams had other restrictions put in place to reduce the cost of racing for all to be able to compete? This could include Staff head count limits etc

    - TT, NW200, Ulster, Olivers Mount ever going to happen?

    Hi Cal,
    I love your accent and you are very funny. Any chance of an autograph from a future MotoGP champion?? Yes I mean you :)

    Hello All

    Questions for Cal

    1. Has he ever had an experience whilst racing bikes when he has Frightened himself by pushing to, or perhaps over, the limit.

    2. Are there any specific corners, or circuits in the Current Championship Season that require such commitment and ‘bottle’ that he gets a buzz everytime he gets them right?

    Cal (Same Name, A lot less talent)

    Questions for Cal:
    1. Ditch the electronic gizzmo’s in favour of the human touch, or are they necessary as they exist and are available on production machines?
    2. If he had the chance to take only one more ride on a bike, where would it be, and on what machine?
    Well done to Cal so far this season and good luck for the remainder!

    How do you think you will get on when you get Stoners ride with Honda next year?

  10. N. Weingart, 12 June 2012 18:52

    With Lorenzo confirmed at Yamaha does this mean you are seriously considering a ride with Ducati next season or do you see a chance of displacing Spies on the Yamaha factory team as a better alternative? Also, what do you think of the idea of MotoGP going to steel brakes?

    Hi Cal/Matt
    Having seen how Rossi has struggled this year and how Casey performed on the Ducati do you think it has damaged Rossi’s legacy as the best ever in many peoples eyes, or, do you think its a case that although supremely talented he has up until now always been canny in riding bikes that flattered him to a degree and now people are daring to voice the opinion that he perhaps never was the messiah after all.

  12. David Evans, 13 June 2012 17:09

    Do feel you could master the Ducati rather than change it to fit . I know the Ducati is different but a human won a world championship on one and I think you have the outlook and desire to take it forward. Good luck whatever route you take to being world Champ.
