Cal to Ducati?

I was hoping he'd get a factory Yamaha ride. Will this ruin him?

"The Desmosedici is the bike that destroyed the morale of Italian legend Valentino Rossi and is now tormenting Italian Dovizioso, who scored four podiums more than Crutchlow when the pair were at Tech 3 in last season.

The Ducati deal will make Crutchlow wealthy beyond his wildest dreams but he has taken on the toughest job in racing."


Yami would not back him, Duc did - Duc has a ton of work to do now but with VW Pockets, the $$ is there and maybe, JUUUUUST maybe, after Nicky, Vale, Dovi and hopefully NOT Cal, they will learn to listen to their riders and take the feedback as positive growth Opps and not criticism

Satellite riders don't win titles. Yamaha would not guarantee a factory ride in 2015 even.

A factory ride is the only chance to win a title. I say roll the dice.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

That was last season Pal and Dovi split too - Also, Dovi was not up battling with MM and the rest of the filed, he battled with Cal - And I HIGHLY Doubt Tech 3 could match what Duc was going to pay him for a Fact Ride

Like I said, if he can do ANYTHING on that Duc, he will be GOLDEN in GP
