"Contendin Cal" ????!

Early last year some folk where in disbelief that Dovi was a contender. I was in disbelief of their disbelief because I always felt Dovi has skills.

But Cal ??? Is he a contender?

Nobody has even mentioned it but Cal currently leads the WC!

Does it need to be mentioned that only two races have been completed? Revisit this thread at the season halfway point.

And your point is? Barry's statement is 100% correct. At this moment in time, Crutchlow is the first Brit to lead the world championship in 29 years, and there you are trying to diminish it.

He's a talented rider. Sure his mouth writes cheques his riding can't cash sometimes but it's funny how Edwards was admired for 'telling it how it is' yet Crutchlow is deemed a talker when he has won 3 times the GP races Edwards did.

I love his attitude, his reaction in Parc Ferme yesterday was hilarious. "Yeah I knew I could win, I said so yesterday had I qualified better"....and he did this time

Yeah but Cal was a guy who always respected and defended Stoner when the boppers would get too hissy. That was good enough for me.
But now add to that ... time is showing he is becoming quite the rider himself.

I think his statements after winning just reflect how happy he is with what he has just achieved.

I also very much agreed with the words he said at the beginning of the post race press conference. Cal is one of the very few genuine "old school" guys left in this sport.


I'd like to see him fight for the title, too, but IMHO he is a bit too erratic. I'd be happy to take these words back tho.
