Crutchlow aims to improve on corner entry

British rider finished third on Friday at Aragon, behind the Repsol Honda Team

Cal Crutchlow finished Friday’s first day of practice at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon in third place on the combined timesheets, but is still looking for improvements at the Spanish circuit. The LCR Honda man registered a best time of 1'48.510 and was just 0.081s behind pace setter Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team), who was the fastest rider on day one with teammate Marc Marquez second.

Crutchlow improved by more than 1.2s in FP2 compared with his morning time and whilst happy with his overall pace and position so far, still wants to improve on Saturday. The Briton has fond memories of Aragon, having achieved a third place finish there in 2014.

Cal Crutchlow: “It has not been a bad day but not perfect. I felt good on the bike, and the team did a great job with some things we wanted to test. I struggled on corner entry and I hope to improve tomorrow with that as it’s where we are having problems. Let's see how things go tomorrow but we are confident and overall we are quite happy.”
