GP win­ner Cal Crutchlow is ready... are you?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview - Cal Crutchlow

Wel­come to MCN’S bumper 32-page Bri­tish Grand Prix pre­view, with all the stats, facts, ex­clu­sive in­ter­views and in­side knowl­edge you need for this year’s Sil­ver­stone race.

Go­ing to Sil­ver­stone on such a high is go­ing to be in­cred­i­ble for me. I’ve been there over so many years, had some fan­tas­tic re­sults, won the Bri­tish Su­pers­port ti­tle there, won World Su­per­bike races and had some great Mo­togp races there too, in­clud­ing that run from last to sixth! And the fan sup­port I’ve had too has been phe­nom­e­nal. I gen­uinely mean it when I say this, but the last two cor­ners at Sil­ver­stone in 2010 and 2012 are the only times I’ve ever heard crowds cheer­ing for me in a race.

I hope to be able to put on a show again. I think all the Bri­tish rid­ers look for­ward to our home Grand Prix and we all ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port too. It’s home, and we al­ways try to meet every­one and have fun.

I know that a lot of peo­ple will want their favourite rid­ers to win, and I fully ap­pre­ci­ate and re­spect that – and I don’t care which rider it is as long as you all sup­port the sport I love.

What­ever hap­pens, we’ll put on a bril­liant show. Com­ing into the Bri­tish Grand Prix as a Mo­togp win­ner is a very spe­cial feel­ing.
