Crutchlow: “This is what MotoGP is all about”

Brit talks about the battle Down Under

Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) was one of the fighters at the front at Phillip Island, and the 2016 winner at the track was able to take a top five finish and beat Andrea Iannone (Team Suzuki Ecstar) to the line out the final corner. The Brit was happy with the result despite missing the podium, after a big crash in Warm Up.

“It was a good race,” says Crutchlow. “Obviously I would have preferred to have repeated the performance from last year or be on the podium, but I felt good in the race. Not the best because I didn’t know if I was even going to race after a hard fall this morning. I didn’t feel great. Normally I’m the guy who will get up from a crash and I did that this morning, maybe I shouldn’t have!”

But the LCR Honda rider fought on in style, saying that’s what it all about…

“This is what MotoGP is all about. We all enjoyed the race, it was a great spectacle for the fans and an enjoyable race for everyone.”
