Scott Redding is running Nissin brakes and Showa suspension too.

Eek Cal not a happy camper

Did anyone else notice how upset Cal Crutchlow was in his Jarez post race interview posted on MGP.com? Even during the pre-race interview he seemed to be trying to hold the company line but he was obviously miffed after the race. Comments such as "not acceptable" "results just not there" "complete disaster" "go away and re-think the rest of the year" and "I've yet to finish a race without a mechanical problem" are pretty strong words even for a guy like Cal who tends to speak frankly. He still was able to compliment Dovi on his finish but I think Cal is experiencing some serious discontent. I know several here will be trying to resist the old "I told you so....."

He had that same "look" Nicky did when he was driving that truck.

Until Cal is beating Dovi he should watch his tongue.

Cal bitching about riding the Red Nasty who'd a thunk it? Oh he bitched about riding Tre' Crap, he won't be happy until he is on one of the Big 4 and that ain't gonna happen. If by some miracle it did would the ghost's of Spies problems raise their ugly heads?

Yeah, not sure if I admire this as a honest interview or if I should dislike it as moaning. He makes some valid points but he sure isn't being very political. Which I like... maybe.

Bullshit. I think Ducati should be shamed as often as possible for their inability, for years, to get the bike right.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Cal is pissed about mechanical issues, not about the bike performance.

That is preventable stuff to me.

Did he inherit Ben's crew?

Well I think he just wants to mimic Rossi hanging out the leg, but because he΄s Marc Marquez, he will go into the next corner so blindingly fast, that he better raise that leg well in advance....

News release

10th November 2014

MotoGP sensation Marc Marquez completed the impossible in the final race of the season winning every Grand Prix event in 2014. Victory at Valencia was a forgone conclusion to the most outstanding display of talent ever to be seen in the history of Moto Racing. The Spanish rider was all smiles as he stood on the podium's top step for the 18th time this year. Despite what was considered a talented field of riders, for the 2014 season, Marc Marquez has shown all his fellow competitors to be no where near his level and riding ability, blitzing them at every event.

Valentino Rossi, 9 times world champion was lost for words. "I cannot believe this is possible" the stunned former champion said as he watched in amazement as Marquez with tears rolling down his face listened to his countries national anthem for the final time this season.
