Cal Crutchlow’s Czech Grand Prix was a difficult one, as his struggles since pickup up a scaphoid injury in Jerez carry on.
Crutchlow started the Czech GP from 12th and struggled to fight for points in Sunday afternoon’s Grand Prix as the British rider struggled to make the most of his LCR Honda RC213V in the slippy Brno conditions.
Crutchlow managed to pick up two points with a 13th place finish, not where the 2016 winner expected to be.
Speaking on Sunday evening, the 34-year-old said:
Cal Crutchlow – 13th“It was not a good day for us. I got a terrible start and was at the back of the race completely and not able to do anything for the first few laps. I tried my best to come through and it seemed that I am able to ride my Honda a lot better alone than when I am in a group. Today, in a group I couldn’t take the correct lines. I did my best to try and salvage a result today, but I didn’t come here to finish in 13th place, I came here to try and win the race which is what we do every week. We’ll try again in the next races. I thank my team for the work they did this weekend and surely we’ll try again in Austria next week.”
Cal will now head to Austria as he aims to return to the top five fight and possibly return to the podium.
