Crutchlow: “It was a strange day but I’m pleased”

Crutchlow: “It was a strange day but I’m pleased”

Cal Crutchlow was pleased to finish in fifth after the first day of Free Practice at the Motul TT Assen.

CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow put in a solid day of work as he prepared his factory Honda RC213V for Saturday’s race around the 4.542km track. After testing several things for the factory in the morning whilst working with used tyres, he then pushed on in the afternoon to finish the day less than three-tenths off his Honda colleague Dani Pedrosa.

Cal Crutchlow: “It was a strange day but overall I’m really pleased with the way we worked because we used old tyres for the whole of the first session and some of the second session. When people had switched to new tyres it looked a bit concerning, but we knew we could put in some decent lap times, and then we did. So overall I’m really happy. We went through some things with the bike that Honda wanted us to try, and this is why we were a bit off the pace in the first free practice. Tomorrow we will be able to focus on our own job and continue to push towards the front. We’re trying to help Honda though, they are our manufacturer and it’s nice that they put the trust in us to give them some important information.”
