MOTO GP: CRUTCHLOW’S HONDA SEEKS REDEMPTION IN JAPAN
It was a bitter Aragon Grand Prix for Team LCR Honda as Cal Crutchlow failed to finish the race following a crash just six laps from the finish. An injury to his left index finger a few days before the race meant that the British rider was unable to properly operate his brake lever. Despite making a strong start from the second row, Crutchlow - Honda’s top rider in Q2 – slid onto the gravel a few laps from the finish.
The next outing for Honda, who were sponsored by flow-meter™ last year, is on 15 October at Japan's Motegi track. Currently sitting in ninth place in the standings with 76 points, Crutchlow will be seeking redemption at the last four Grand Prix of the season in the hope of achieving the best position come the final.
