Seventh place for Crutchlow after opening day in Valencia

Seventh place for Crutchlow after opening day in Valencia

10.11.2017: Valencia GP Day One LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow made an encouraging start to the

Valencia GP Day One
             



LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow made an encouraging start to the Valencia Grand Prix – the final round of the 2017 MotoGP World Championship season.



A thrilling weekend is in store with the title battle between HRC factory rider Marc Marquez and Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso having gone down to the year’s last race.



 On Friday, Crutchlow served notice that he’ll be looking to be in the shake-up for the podium places in Sunday’s race with a solid performance throughout.



The Briton posted the eighth fastest time of a chilly but dry morning session at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, but then improved as temperatures rose in the afternoon.



Crutchlow ended the day in seventh spot riding his Rizoma branded RC213V – just two behind Marquez – and declared himself satisfied with the progress his team had made at a layout which, he acknowledged, is not amongst his favourites on the calendar.     
           




 Cal Crutchlow – 7th
(1’31.383 – lap 18 of 20)




"We’re happy enough with our day. It’s a little bit difficult coming back from the three flyaway races where the tracks are quite big and quite open, whereas here it’s really small – it seemed a bit of a drag at times, but overall we’re happy enough and we worked well as a team.



“This circuit is quite difficult to get on with, it’s really easy to crash on the right hand side of the tyre as you saw today where many riders made a mistake in that area.



I find it quite difficult here, and especially with our bike, but as I said we worked in a good way today, we worked well with Honda and did a good job. Now we just have to try and continue this and make the best setting we can for qualifying tomorrow.”
