London, EN runganSport — LCR Honda Castrol Satellite rider, Cal Crutchlow claimed to feel happy every time he gets a long holiday after the race in December and January every year.

But, lately the British star began to complain a bit because the MotoGP racing season is too long each year.

“The pre-season test at the end of November was very disturbing, and we didn’t need it,” complained Crutchlow.

Crutchlow explained that the drivers did not protest the number of races in a year, the problem was the span of time between the start of the season and the end of a very long season.

“But we racers don’t complain, even though we have 19 races.

“It’s just a pre-season test at the end of November at Jerez that really annoys us, it’s ridiculous,” he continued.

“We have a long season. Of course we will have two months off. I don’t complain about that.

But I do not agree that we have to drive until the end of November. We underwent the last race weekend in Valencia from November 16-18.

Then we pre-season tests there on Tuesday and Wednesday for another two days.

After that we had four days before we returned to a similar test at Jerez, “Crutchlow’s protest was disappointed. (DN/eV)

Mugello, EN runganSport — So far the new Repsol Honda announced one rider for the upcoming 2019/2020 season.

Another position is still empty, which is currently being occupied by Dani Pedrosa.

The failure of Johann Zarco and Joan Mir to Repsol Honda increasingly memperluar opportunities Pedrosa survive in the Orange team.

But there is one senior Honda rider who really crave Repsol Honda team, he is Cal Crutchlow.

The British rider who is now defending the LCR Honda Satellite team feels very worthy to be in the first team.

“If you look at what the results of my racing in the statistics in the last three seasons, I always exist in the top ten of the final standings.

So, I really deserve a place in the manufacturer team, “Crutchlow said as reported by Sport Bikes News.

Cutchlow also feel strange with Repsol Honda who was interested in hook Zarco, but according to Zarco has not been confirmed to fit the Honda engine.

“It’s clear Zarco is one of the best riders, but I do not think he fits in with Honda.

I’ve tested Yamaha, Ducati and Honda, so I know how everything works.

Zarco says he wants to have a style similar to Jorge to control M1. But Honda is a very demanding motorcycle, “Crutchlow continued.

“Yamaha and Honda differ like day and night, Honda racer will have problems if you use Yamaha, vice versa.

Because Honda’s strongest point is in our braking sector, which is clearly 1000 times better than Yamaha, but in their bend better,” said Crutchlow. (DN/eV)
