Crutchlow: the best Brit since Sheene?

In the aftermath of the Argentina GP, it’s British rider Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) who’s leading the World Championship – and the Guardian newspaper are featuring a blog on the now three-time GP winner, written by renowned motorsport journalist Richard Williams.

Going through Crutchlow’s career from his move from WorldSBK to his most recent successes, the article calls the rider from Coventry the best Brit since Barry Sheene – also pointing out that he’s the first Brit since the same to win (2016), to win two races in a year (2016) and to lead the standings (2018).

It begins, however, with a quick look at Crutchlow’s training after the Termas de Rio Hondo winner after a choice quote on how he prepares. One of the few to not normally train on two-wheeled vehicles with an engine, the LCR rider says his Argentina GP win “shows you don’t have to ride motorcycles all winter and do press-ups and pull-ups, because I haven’t done one.”
