With three wet/dry races in the last four rounds, MotoGP fans should be getting accustomed to strange results. Aussie Jack Miller came out of nowhere to win at Assen on his satellite Honda. Marc Marquez held serve at The Sachsenring, but was joined on the podium by Cal Crutchlow and Ducati pilot Andrea Dovizioso. Today, the abrasive #CalCulator won his first ever premier class race ahead of Yamaha icon Valentino Rossi and Marquez. Cosmic justice prevailed – the biggest day in modern British racing history had virtually no impact on the 2016 season series.

The practice sessions leading up to today’s race were warm and dry, with most of the usual suspects at or near the top of the sheets. As usual in 2016, at tracks where the new ECU and Michelins haven’t been tested, it took some of the riders awhile to sort things out. Dani Pedrosa, for example, ended the respective sessions 11th, 15th, 6th and 4th, and had to make it out of Q1 before starting the race in ninth place.

Marc Marquez blew away the Brno track record in qualifying. The race would have been much different if it were also in completely dry conditions.

As qualifying session two approached the 15-minute mark, it looked like a race – Marquez, chasing Jorge Lorenzo’s impossibly quick qualifying and track record lap, found himself, late in a very quick lap, in a close encounter with Pol Espargaro on the Tech 3 Yamaha and Rossi on his Movistar Yamaha. Marquez went through on both, hot-knife-through-butter style, on his way to an inconceivable track record lap of 1:54.596. Rossi, unaware he was in Marquez’s way, seemed surprised when #93 blew past him and then barely dodged the slower Espargaro. At the end of the session, it was Marquez, Lorenzo and Andrea Iannone on a very strong front row. Had Marquez been running in clean air, he could have touched 1:54.2.

Sunday Dawns Gray and Wet

As we’ve seen numerous times this season, two sunny days of practice yielded to a rainy, wet, miserable Sunday. This reduced the Sunday attendance from 138,000 last year to 85,000 today. Moto3 ran in a downpour; Moto2 in a steady rain until the last few laps. As the premier class tilt approached, there was mass confusion in the garages and on the grid regarding tire choices. And, in the end, it was tire choices that determined the outcome of the race.

Jonas Folger (94) won a wet Moto2 race ahead of Alex Rins (40).

As everyone knows by now, the correct choice for this race was the hard option front and rear. At this writing, I am aware that five of the top eight finishers put hard tires on the rear – Crutchlow, Rossi, Loris Baz (17th to 4th), Hector Barbera (5th in both qualifying and the race), and Eugene Laverty (15th to 6th). Marquez, expecting a flag-to-flag affair, went with soft/soft, as did Iannone. Danilo Petrucci, who finished seventh on his Pramac Ducati, appeared to have the hard rear, but this is unconfirmed. And while the riders on the softer tires had things their way during the first half of the race, it was the harder options which delivered the win to Crutchlow, second to Rossi, and fourth to a surprised Baz in his best ever MotoGP result.

Uncertain weather conditions made tire choice a critical factor.

Some selected glimpses of the standings at various points in today’s race show:

  • Crutchlow finishing Lap 7 in 12th place;
  • Rossi finishing Lap 9 in 10th;
  • Baz finishing Lap 8 in 14th; and
  • Laverty finishing Lap 11 in 14th.

All four finished in the top six. Once the tires warmed up and the fuel loads dropped, the riders who had rolled the dice on the hard rears began rolling through the field, while the rest of the grid, with the notable exception of Marquez, began sinking like anvils. Dovizioso waved the red flag on his Ducati when the center of his rear Michelin disintegrated on Lap 10. Teammate Iannone finished the race with no rubber in the middle of either tire.

Given his record-setting performance in qualifying, Marc Marquez could have pressed harder but wisely decided to be more conservative with his tires.

Marquez, who led briefly, realized early on that managing his tires would be critical to finishing the race, as the rain stayed away but the track remained damp. And despite the fact that he spent a good deal of the day in fourth and fifth position, none of the riders in front of him presented any threat to his championship lead. Rossi went through on Lap 16, but took only four points out of Marquez, while the Catalan’s lead in the 2016 championship stretched from 43 to 53 points. Calling Marquez’s performance today a salvage job is inaccurate. It was, to be fair, a strategic triumph after a bad roll of the dice on tires.

Which Brings Us to Jorge Lorenzo

The best metaphor to describe defending triple world champion Jorge Lorenzo’s experience this weekend is descending from the penthouse to the outhouse. The man cannot race in the rain any longer, an Achilles heel that may stand in the way of any future championships for one of the best dry riders in history. He owned the track record on Saturday; he failed to finish the race on the lead lap today having made at least two, and perhaps five, separate pit stops. Race coverage of his travails ceased after the second stop.

Jorge Lorenzo continues to struggle in wet races and his tire strategy was all over the place at Brno.

His lap times for laps 17-21 were all well over two minutes. He came in on 17 and basically stole his #2 dry bike over the animated objections of crew chief Ramon Forcada. One lap later he returned to the pit and jumped back on his #1 wet bike. From there it gets confusing, but on Lap 20, a lap down to the leaders, he suddenly appeared in the midst of Barbera and Marquez, acting as if he were fighting for the lead, having apparently lost his mind. I’m not sure there is a journalist brave enough to attempt a post-race interview with Lorenzo. He ceded second place in the 2016 race to his rival Rossi and embarrassed himself in the process. For a man with a very high machismo coefficient, things cannot get much worse.

As to what follows, many of you knew it was coming.

“As Far as I’m Concerned, They’re All Wimps”

Cal Crutchlow is the first Brit to win a premier-class Grand Prix race since Barry Sheene in the Swedish Grand Prix at Anderstorp, almost exactly 35 years ago in 1981.

Thus spoke Cal Crutchlow in the post-race interview with Dylan Gray, preening over his ballsy choice of hard tires, about the other 19 riders on the grid, three of whom have won multiple premier class world championships.

Today was Cal’s first premier class win. His beloved wife presented him with his first child several weeks ago. He’s young, handsome, wealthy and getting paid ridiculous jack to do something he would gladly do for free had he arrived in this world with a trust fund. Yet, somehow, he finds the need to insult his colleagues – all of them – irresistible, and in the most demeaning way imaginable. By impugning their manhood. By asserting he was the only rider – he wasn’t – intelligent and bold enough to make what amounted to a lucky choice of tires. In essence, for having the balls and brains to have rolled a seven in a craps game.

You are the MAN, Cal. Rolling a seven. On a day when a Brit won a premier class race for the first time in 35 years. At a track where, in dry conditions, you would have done well to finish sixth, if at all. In the presence of Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez, each of whom would absolutely eat your lunch in a match race in dry weather on identical equipment. I’m starting to think, as skilled as you are, you’re missing a chromosome. That you may have invested a few thousand enrolling in the Donald Trump School of Tact and Grace. And, finally, that you will never again appear on the top step of a MotoGP podium, that Brno 2016 will stand as the high water mark of your classless career. Bravo.

Whatever you say, Cal. Whatever you say.

  • Mahatma

    Abit harsh on Cal considering his 2nd place finish last race,or was that the one before…Granted he’s not what one would call PC,but today he made the best of a great gamble.Best racing I’ve seen for some time.Not that I’m following the show too closely mind.

    • Bruce Allen

      Agreed. Here’s what Cal should have said to Dylan Gray in Parc Ferme: “It was a tough race in tough conditions. I was lucky to have chosen the correct tires, which made things after the middle of the race pretty easy. It’s been a disappointing season, but we are determined to see it through and collect as many podiums as we can. Congratulations to Vale and Marc for keeping it close. Next to the birth of our daughter several weeks ago, this is the best feeling I can remember. Thanks to my team and Lucio for continuing to have faith in me after such a bloody mess of a start to the season.” I would have had not one word of criticism for Cal today if this had come out of his mouth instead of the bullshit he regularly presents us.

      • spiff

        You should be a speech writer.

      • Mahatma

        And we complain about racers lacking personality…

        • Bruce Allen

          I don’t. I’ve observed here that they must usually conduct interviews in their second language, which makes them sound inarticulate and dull. No shortage of personality with guys like CC, MM, VR, AI, etc. I’d hate to have to talk about a race in Spanish or Italian.

          • Gruf Rude

            Agreed. Just for the heck of it, I’ve listened to interviews of Rossi and Marquez in their native languages and they are very animated and obviously quite descriptive (though I don’t understand a word).

          • Ian Parkes

            Really? I’ve been quite impressed with those interviews and what they can convey in a second language. It’s often much more insightful than the dross our sports stars come out with, most of whom appear to use a random cliche generator – “it was a game of two halves” etc

      • Ian Parkes

        Thank god he didn’t. We have enough people using random cliche generators as it is. Not least of the problem with those machines is the contradictions they throw up: “tough race”/ “tough conditions”/ “pretty easy” – say what? Which?

        What he said was actually less ambiguous and more human.

        • Bruce Allen

          All I need to become a Crutchlow fan is for him to accept the blame when it’s his to accept and to show a little humility at times. What I seem to get from him, instead, is “I’m great, and all these other pissants are wankers. How can you soar with eagles with you work with turkeys? Etc etc.” I love the fact that non-Aliens have won the last two races. And most of the grid would agree that the conditions yesterday were difficult, yet Cal said, more than once, that he had a pretty easy time with the hard tires. No contradiction there. I appreciate your insights.

          • Ian Parkes

            Re your first comment in your reply, fair enough and don’t get me wrong, I agree he’s no saint – an arrogant knob (but an entertaining one) would be closer to the mark. I was just being picky about the suggested quote describing the race as both tough, tough and… easy. I get it now: “It was a race of two halves”…

  • Starmag

    I don’t really like the gloom,but it sure makes the races interesting, with tough choices and rolls of the dice. Kudos to MM for tempering the win it or bin urge again. Also to Rossi for his surge through the field.

    Damn Bruce, you clubbed Crutch like a baby seal, but I have to admit he had it coming. Shame he couldn’t have found a bit of humility when it really mattered.

    It sure seems Jorge has a long term problem on his hands. Because of that, now Ducati does too. I don’t remember him being this awful in the rain in the past. El Gato sure hates water now.

    • Prakasit

      My prediction, if MM win the championship this year, we would look back at this race as where he sealed the deal. Although, I am a little conflicted about which is more entertaining: rooting for my favorite rider(s) to win the championship or enjoying each race.

  • BDan75

    I’m not what you’d call a Crutchlow fan, and he certainly doesn’t have a very good filter…but I took the “wimps” thing as a joke that didn’t quite land, rather than a slap at his competitors. Seems like that’s just his sense of humor, e.g., saying he wished he’d had a free hand so he could flip his team boss the bird when he (LC of LCR) was leaning over the pit wall, telling him to take it easy.

  • Old MOron

    I thought Cal’s “wimps” comment was tongue-in-cheek. I admit that it was hard tell whether he intended it good-naturedly, but he seemed humble enough in the post-race presser.

    I thought the race was great. There was plenty of everything: slicing, dicing, strategy, calculus, all the things that make watching fun.

    • spiff

      At first I thought he was serious, then realized there can be no way he was serious. Man, I hope he wasn’t serious.

      • Bruce Allen

        I thought he was serious. He seemed to say something similar in the presser, but toned it down somewhat. (Thought he was the only rider on hard tires?) At the same time, it seems like he’s very popular with the other riders. I guess it means he’s not the A-hole in private he seems to be in public. Usually it’s the other way around.

        • spiff

          I think he might just have that delightful dry British humor. Lol

          Jerk or not, when he shows his kid thus race he can be proud that he came from the back with limited attrition. Good first win.

        • Mikael Mattson

          Thought he was serious. Only much later I thought maybe he was being humorous..? Anyway, probably that style doesn’t work well in public when people don’t really know him and he appears to be serious. He should tone it down, since many think he is being a donkey.
          BTW: The race was great :)

  • Old MOron

    Okay, now for Jorge: WTF was he doing? What a pompous ass! Oh well, at least the world got a good laugh when he had to come back to the pits after ignoring his crew chief.

    • Gruf Rude

      After the race, his team explained that his soft front tire had come apart and that was why he pitted. He went out on the slicks to preserve some points while the team changed out the trashed front tire on his number 1 ‘wet’ bike, then came back in to get back on the ‘wet’ bike, now re-shod with a good tire.

      • Old MOron

        Yes, I saw Jorge’s interview to the same effect. It’s possible that his front tire came apart. Happened to Dovi and Iannone, too. But if his team hope that we will believe the whole bike swapping adventure was a concerted effort, well, they can fool themselves, but not me.

        With 8 laps to go, Lorenzo broke into the 2’08. (That was the same pace as Valentino.) Lorenzo was in 10th place and climbing. That is not the pace of a racer whose front tire has disintegrated.

        Bradley Smith had already entered for his dry bike. There was a slight dry line forming, and Jorge wanted to take advantage of it.

        Ramon Forcada pleaded urgently for Lorenzo to stay on his wet bike. No way was that a concerted effort. And I doubt Lorenzo had front tire issues.

  • Mr. J

    I like that Cal says what he wants and pretty sure he said it all in good fun. Hell, half of the guys on the grid do not even answer the question which the reporter is asking!

  • Shlomi

    I just can’t believe what JLO did. He can’t ride the wet and he went with Slicks bike? He must have been in complete panic mode, and thought perhaps the bike is set up with intermediates(?)
    Like I said in the past I wish the championship would have at least 4 wet races to show who can do it when traction is low. Surely, JLO, simply can’t, and he embarrassed himself quite miserably. This is not how a world champ ride and behave.

    • Gruf Rude

      After the race, his team explained that his soft front tire had come apart and that was why he pitted. He went out on the slicks to preserve some points while the team changed out the trashed front tire on his number 1 ‘wet’ bike, then came back in to get back on the ‘wet’ bike, now re-shod with a good tire. He shouldn’t have been dicing with Marquez and Barbera a lap down, though.

      • Shlomi

        Thats the official version….when he came in his crew almost fought with him not to take the #2 bike. Might be true, still silly performance week after week on the wet, from a guy that calls himself the best rider in the world.

        • Gruf Rude

          My opinion is that Lorenzo will never have the confidence to race in the rain again; his history of injuries has fully caught up with him. I do not doubt his tire was shredding and given his mental state, there was no way he would ‘ride it out’ to the end. I thought Iannone was crazy to stay out on what was left of his tires; Lorenzo simply cannot force himself to take those risks anymore.

          • Old MOron

            Nothing against you, Gruf. But I dislike Lorenzo, so let’s just have a look at his lap times.

            http://resources.motogp.com/files/results/2016/CZE/MotoGP/RAC/analysisbylap.pdf

            * When Lorenzo enters the pit on Lap 15, the Moto GP commentators remark that he had just done a 2'08, and why was he changing bikes. In fact his time on Lap 14 was faster than anybody else's on that lap. No way had his front tire shredded at that point.

            Watch the race from 50:04 (Brad Smith's bike change) to get the picture: http://www.motogp.com/en/videos/2016/08/21/czechgp-motogp-full-race/208293

            ** At 57:56 of the video, Dylan Gray announced that Lorenzo has gone out on exactly the same wet bike had had before. "No change whatsoever from the one he came in on."

            Dylan was apparently standing there in Lorenzo's pit. Seems like they didn't even give him fresh rain tires. Based on Lorenzo's lap times, and based on Dylan Gray's observation, I highly, highly doubt that his front tire had any problems.

          • Gruf Rude

            I don’t know if Dylan Gray’s report meant there was no tire change or that the bike went back out on the same rain set-up but with a changed tire. Kevin Cameron reports that the team initially did not realize the tire had shed a strip from the center as the bike stopped with the missing rubber down. If Lorenzo upped his pace to 2:08 and then the tire chunked itself wildly out-of-balance, that would explain his sudden decision to enter the pits. I hold no brief for any of the riders, but (as an old, battered guy nearing the end of his riding career) I admit to empathy (and respect) for Lorenzo.

          • Old MOron

            Yes, I’ve seen that report on other websites. The chunked part of Lorenzo’s tire just happened to be against the pavement when he stopped his bike in the pits. I can think of three factors that cut against that claim.

            1. His lap times don’t support a fragged tire.

            2. Dylan’s Gray is a seasoned, professional commentator standing in Lorenzo’s pit. One of his main duties is to comment on who has which tires all during the race. It’s highly unlikely that he would overlook a fresh tire.

            3. When Lorenzo swaps bikes, he doesn’t give the slightest indication that his front tire is problematic. Watch the exchange. He completely ignores his crew. He doesn’t nod, point to, or any any way indicate anything about his tire.

            I admire Lorenzo’s capabilities on a motorcycle. He forfeited my respect a couple of years ago.

            But I do respect your privilege to empathize with any rider of your choosing. Cheers!

          • Bruce Allen

            Well, we can all agree on one thing. I utterly blew the coverage of Lorenzo’s troubles.. For whatever reason, I thought he pitted on Lap 17, and ignored the times before then, which were the relevant ones. MO needs to get a better MotoGP correspondent. My bad.

          • Old MOron

            Cut it out, Bruce. You got your analysis out all by yourself, and you were the first one to press. Our analysis comes days later, as the result of extended dialog among aficionados. You keep up the good work, and I hope his Dukeness sends you to more races!

          • Shlomi

            Dude, this is brilliant investigation which brings facts to my theory. Lorenzo was panicked, and lost his mind. Obviously Yamaha stuff can not say “our rider is crazy we could not stop him.,.” so they came up with story about the front tire. To my madness theory I would add the last few laps when Lorenzo got himself in the mix of the leading group only that he was at least one lap behind. He didn’t even let the leading group pass him, can only have one explanation JLO went mad!

          • spiff

            You have to much time on your hands. Don’t get me wrong, good post. Lol

  • Shlomi

    Listening to the post race press conference, i must say Marc is the smartest rider in this championship. He said, the moment I figured out its not flag to flag race i must preserve the tires. When Cal and Rossi passed him, he didnt fight back and he just knew who is racing against. Even when luck is not in his side, Marc use his brain this year which makes him impossible to catch up. The Maniac for example didn’t figure it out, and finished 8th.

  • JMDonald

    Sunny sunny wet. The dynamics of racing is far more enjoyable than any professional ball sport of any kind. Crutchlow may be delusional but whatever reality he is currently enjoying so be it. Never say never.

  • Ian Parkes

    Oh dear Brucey, when it comes to encouraging Cal to be classy and not diss people, pot and kettle – regardless of how much I enjoyed it. But I sure didn’t get the impression Cal was being waspish – just enjoying himself, as well he might. As for your conclusion damning him to podium-free ignominy, how will you atone if he proves you wrong?

    • Bruce Allen

      As always, I’m fully prepared to be proven wrong. I just think it took a rare confluence of events/conditions for him to get his first win. However, to atone for the firestorm of comments I’ve engendered by possibly mis-interpreting his remarks today, I have moved him up to the top of Tranche 3. That should minimize his chances of being seen on the podium again this season. :)

  • Ian Parkes

    Top pic – the eyes! The eyes!

  • Ozzy Mick

    I enjoyed the excitement of this race which was helped by the gamble on tyre choices and the smarts and stupidity of some of the riders. Or good luck v bad luck. I watched a delayed telecast hosted by Daryl Beattie, former premier class racer, who cringed when he heard Crashlow’s “Wimp” comment. Are the Alien’s losing some of their dominance?

    Real enjoyment of racing thrill. https://www.maximo-moto.com

  • john phyyt

    I just saw a slow motion clip of Iannone’s front tire late in the race and it had a strip one inch wide with no rubber .   This is just so dangerous that I think michelin have some very serious questions to answer. If a serious injury had occured it isn’t hard to see where blame may have fallen.   Imagine if any other component had failed so spectacularly?
    This along with that tire exploded at top speed makes me think that this company is simply not up to the task.  Everyone wants to see the maximum level of safety possible so maybe need to back the tyres off a little, to ensure durability.

    • Bruce Allen

      Why not have two tire suppliers? Bridgestone fronts and Michelin rears. Joint development so the riders don’t get tossed into the cheap seats.

      • john phyyt

        Agreed. I have a Michelin road tires. And safety needs to be a foremost factor. It seems to me since everyone has to use this company they have an additional responsibility . I just can’t imagine Red Bull or Ferrari suffering this sort of catastrophic failure, which definately endangers their sportsmen and saying…… We raced on your tires and they failed . but all is Okay.

    • BDan75

      People were on the wrong tires for the conditions, and Michelin knew (and warned) that the tires probably wouldn’t last an entire race if the track started drying. Thing is, nobody knew just how fast the track would dry. Those w/ the soft wets were either assuming it would stay really wet, or dry out by the first half of the race (then come in for intermediates or slicks). Crutchlow and a few others had the correct tire for the conditions as they in fact developed.

      Anyway, let’s keep in mind that they’re learning as they go. Have we had another tire explosion since Argentina? No…

      • Bruce Allen

        Perhaps Michelin is trying to save some euros by slipping in a few retreads. There had to have been rubber all over the track, must have looked like the Pennsylvania Turnpike on an August afternoon.

  • john burns
    • Bruce Allen

      I think I got this wrong. If your boss would just send me to more races, I could talk to people who know stuff and find out, you know, the facts. As it is I sit at my kitchen table and talk to myself. I do think, however, that Cal needs to focus more on engaging brain before releasing mouth. A lot of what comes out of his piehole can be misinterpreted, especially from a distance.

  • Vrooom

    I’m starting to think you don’t like the soft spoken Mr. Crutchlow, Bruce. Never would have put my money there. Though probably more surprising is Lorenzo appearing a lap down at the end. Didn’t see that coming. Interesting race, it least it gave some of the up and comers a look at the Podium though not landing on it. Guys like Baz and Laverty. Great write up.

    • Bruce Allen

      I got so whooped up over Crutchlow’s comment–likely misinterpreted according to most of you–that I failed give props to the Avintia team which placed two riders in the top five. When was the last time that happened? Never.

  • Ian Parkes

    I’d just like to offer my thanks to both Cal and Bruce, and their respective foibles, for making this one of the most entertaining post-race autopsies ever.

    Hey Bruce! Hey everybody! Look what I found.

    Remember when Cal and Dovi were riding for Tech3? There was a fuss because Dovi got the latest and greatest brakes, while Cal had to make do with second-tier binders. Somebody started a GoFundMe page for Cal to raise funds and buy the brakes that Herve wouldn’t.

    I guess both Dovi and Cal have come a long way since then. Dovi has enjoyed being a Factory Ducati rider. Cal’s path has been less glamorous, but Cal has a Moto GP win!
